EMERJ-SafeNow understands that people who are differently abled are at high risk for violence and sexual assault. We work with communities and organizations to identify community strengths and gaps in services. We do this through listening sessions or meetings with communities, organizations and families. EMERJ-SafeNow sessions focus on building trust and safety for sharing information and collaboration.
EMERJ-SafeNow customizes personal safety skills to meet the needs of each participant, taking into consideration past traumatic experiences, age and differing abilities. We also partner with organizations to strength protective factors and resources.
Topics for people with different abilities include:
The importance of self-care and well being as self-defense
Identifying unsafe people and behaviors
Assertive communication and boundaries
Accessing support allies, bystanders and safe adults in their lives
Physical and non-physical self-defense skills
