Kids Self-Defense & Safety is a child abuse prevention/intervention program based on empowerment of the child through building self-esteem, awareness and assertiveness skills, and physical self-defense techniques.
Peace Over Violence’s Kids’ Self-Defense and Safety provides children with an opportunity to develop critical thinking skills, respect their instincts and cultivate assertiveness.The program focuses on three components, incorporating age-appropriate role-plays which encourage children take action on their own behalf. Statistics and awareness exercises help children to understand that, while being prepared is important, most people would never hurt a child. Assertiveness exercises and conflict resolution skill building exercises increase the child’s ability to prevent abuse by adults, older children, or peers, and physical techniques build self-esteem and decrease fear.
