What is Protective Behaviours

Protective Behaviours is a practical down to earth approach to personal safety. It is a process that encourages self-empowerment and brings with it the skills to raise self-esteem and to help avoid being victimised.  This is achieved by helping individuals to recognise and trust their intuitive feelings (Early Warning Signs) and to develop strategies for self-protection. The Protective Behaviours process encourages an adventurous approach to life that satisfies the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear.

Protective Behaviours is increasingly becoming integrated into many areas of work including; parent support, counselling, abuse prevention, crime prevention, PSHE work, sex and relationship education, empowerment programmes, peer support, restorative justice and restorative practices, drug education, working with children, adolescents, adults of many faiths, abilities and lifestyles.

How does it work at school?

The children will participate in a series of age appropriate lessons within school. The themes and messages from the programme will be reinforced throughout the school year and link very closely to our Jigsaw PSHE programme.
