Using Psychological & Emotional Readiness to Avoid Being A Victim of Violence and CrimeBook - 2001
While physical fitness and good health are important components in self-defense, psychological and emotional readiness are in some respects even more crucial. Being Safe, written by a psychologist with 30 years’ experience in prevention, treatment, and education in the areas of violence and self-defense, presents a complete system for avoiding becoming a victim of crime. The book lays out a simple, systematic plan that emphasizes the mind/body connection. It shows readers how to fine-tune sensory awareness and intuition, increase confidence, decrease anxiety, and consequently build a psychological edge to discourage would-be assailants. Avoiding fear tactics, Ross takes a practical, results-oriented approach to various strategies such as body language, guided imagery, and the use of common objects for self-defense. An array of tips and techniques, checklists, statistics, and scenarios make Being Safe both a comprehensive guide and an intriguing read.
