Protective Behaviours

a personal safety program to promote resilience in children addressing

  • empowerment strategies,
  • clear communication,
  • awareness of “safe” behaviours,
  • self-worth,
  • resilience,
  • social skills and
  • other life skills.

By teaching and promoting these concepts, Protective Behaviours helps to prevent abuse, reduce violence and promote life-enriching rather than life-depleting experiences.

It encourages children to:

  • Assert their right to feel safe
  • Listen to what their body tells them
  • Follow up by taking action to either solve problems on their own or to seek assistance from other people.
