Wise Escapes for Women: A Seminar on Personal Self-protection and Crime Prevention – 2019

By: Steve Donofrio


Reality #1 – One in three women will be or know someone who has been the victim of some type of sexual assault or date/domestic abuse. Reality #2 – College-aged women are 4X more likely to be a victim of abuse, trafficking, or recruiting into the sex industry. Reality #3 – Less than 1% of women will ever take a self-protection class. When you think about our theme verse, 2 Peter 1:5-8:? ?Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance??, do you think of personal self-protection?? You should!? Wise escapes will help equip women to face the evil that exists because of sinful desires being pursued by others. (See verse 4.) Attendees will walk away with powerful useful principles to help them be proactive about their personal safety. Topics discussed: Self-protection vs self-defense; crimes and criminals; tricks and techniques used by traffickers and sex industry recruiters; cell phones, sexting and the consequences; The ?Self-Protection Matrix??; and MORE. This workshop is recommended for mothers and their daughters 14 years and older.
