Professional and Personal Safety

Many people are feeling less safe walking in their business and home neighborhoods, on public transportation, and when isolated with clients. There is a perception of increased threats to personal safety and property, including daylight assaults, robberies, and vandalism.


There are three skills every person should know in order to defend themselves. The first is the awareness to see and recognize that a potential attack is about to occur, as well as having a safety plan to avoid dangerous situations.

The second skill is having the assertiveness to "bring up" and say something about inappropriate behavior to someone who is "testing the water" to see how far they can get with you.

The third skill is the ability to physically stop someone from harming you. These skills are easy to learn and will stay with you for the rest of your life.



During this discussion period, we share how to be safe when at home, on the street, or play. We will also explore how predators set up their victim and how to create a personal safety plan.   

  • Listening to your intuition
  • Distinguishing between intuition and “the other voices”
  • Social pulls against your intuition
  • Making a safety plan at work, home, and where you walk or play
  • Ways in which an assault occurs
  • Managing People with Mental Health Issues on the street


André Salvage and Associates will also share how to assert yourself properly, set boundaries, and educate people on how to treat you.  We will share how to use your body and voice to avoid and de-escalate conflicts without appearing like a victim or a challenge.

  • Learning to set boundaries that either end or keep the relationship
  • Educating people on how to treat us
  • Speaking up when something is wrong
  • Bringing attention to uncomfortable situations (screaming if necessary)
  • Using your voice and body correctly and appropriately

    Self-Defense (Optional)

    There is no better way to handle confrontation than not to be afraid of confrontation that may arise. André Salvage and Associates will introduce self-defense in a way that not only is effective but gives you the choice to make the right decision about a particular situation.

    • This introduction can range from a brief discussion to non-contact demonstrations to hands-on practice.

    This training can be presented as a 1-2 hour lecture or a half-day workshop tailored to fit your specific needs. Contact us at for more information or to schedule a workshop.
