Description

How to respond to harassment and other unsafe situations during travel and work abroad

After the meeting you join the group for drinks. The atmosphere is great, and you are having a good time.  You find yourself in an animated discussion with a director of a possible future partner organisation. He is standing very close to you and you ask him to give you some room. The man keeps focussed on you and now puts a hand on your shoulder. This makes you feel very uncomfortable. You made yourself clear, didn’t you? What to do? How to get out of this situation?

This Course is specific for female travelers

Working in complex environments, female travellers can be confronted with harassment and other threatening situations. Especially when traveling and working abroad you must be able to deal with these situations with confidence and determination. This course enables you to de-escalate and steer situations in the right direction. After this course you have the tools and confidence to deal with situations when travelling. That way you can focus on your mission.

What you can expect

  • This is a practical course with lots of exercises and simulations
  • Your private experiences stay private. During this course we focus on preventing situations in the future.
  • This is not a self-defence course. This course enables you to defuse situations before they escalate.

Safe learning environment

Anyone can take part in our training. Your personal safety and well-being are our primary concern. Before and during the course, you can share prior experiences with the trainer. She can discreetly adapt the course for you to make sure this will be the best and safest learning experience you ever had. As this is a female only training, the course is facilitated by a female trainer, the actor is male.

Practise through hyper-realistic simulations

We believe in the power of exercising and simulations. The focus of this course is not on theory but on practising situations in a safe environment. Together with the actor we will stage many different situations in different settings. You will get a chance to practise effective ways to defuse situations.
