Self-defense is a risk reduction strategy that may offer assertiveness training, education about dangerous situations and “red flags” that perpetrators may exhibit, and strategies to physically and verbally resist dangerous situations. Self-defense does not prevent the choices perpetrators make to assault, but may provide individuals with confidence, awareness, and diffusion strategies to increase their safety and potentially lessen the severity of attacks.
