Why Self Defense is a MUST when working on your holistic wellbeing
Written by: Emily Celis
When it comes to awareness, we begin with awareness of our physical body. When we can feel safe and secure in our physical bodies and surroundings, we are free to explore more of ourselves, our world and how we relate to everything around us. This is central to our overall sense of wellbeing. Our hope is that nothing has happened or does happen to jeopardize that feeling of safety, but sadly and truthfully, a loss of this fundamental feeling of safety in our bodies and surroundings has happened to many.
Empowering yourself through education and experience allows you a path forward to feeling free again. And if more guidance is needed along the way to safety – we offer other services that can also support you (I.e. trauma focused therapy, etc).
And to those who have been fortunate thus far in life to not experience something where self defense skills were necessary, we do want to bring you to a place of preparedness so that you can truly feel safer when equipped with this knowledge.
One of our offerings at S.A.G.E. is a Self Defense course for professional helpers and healers. If you don’t fall into this group and are very interested in learning more about how to further your skills here, please let us know.
Why does this class exist?
Firstly, thank you for your dedication in serving others. Thank you for helping others to live their lives with meaning and to their full potential. Your selflessness and empathy is so crucial in this socially disconnected society.
However, your selflessness and empathy, can at times leave you vulnerable to emotional and physical harm.
Our Self Defense for Professional Helpers and Healers Training + Certification Course provides you with the tools to perform your job effectively and safely.
We will discuss where and when to act to protect yourself and others. We will cover pertinent California State laws, Board of Behavioral Science policies and learn swift and appropriate actions that will work to keep you and your career safe from legal harm. We will sharpen your awareness skills to better understand and analyze criminal behavior. Lastly, we will provide you with the skills and knowledge to overcome physical attack.
Our goal here at S.A.G.E. is to help you continue to keep making a positive impact on society and we passionately believe that education and experience is the key to success.
