Empowerment Self Defense within the LGBTQ+ Community: Presented by SETpoint

Join SETpoint as we explore ways to enhance personal safety through the basics of Empowerment Self Defense (ESD), as it pertains to this particular community. ESD is a holistic self-defense strategy that diverges sharply from traditional notions of self- defense. Grounded in academic research, an ESD curriculum offers a multi-faceted perspective that provides a powerful, coordinated, and preventative approach to reducing sexual assault and gender-based violence.  SETpoint’s coaching philosophy is trauma-informed, survivor-centered, and inclusive. 
 

In this remote workshop, we'll introduce core components of ESD, including:

  • Situational Awareness: learning to recognize unhealthy behaviors and situations;
  • Boundary Setting through voice and stance;
  • Effective concepts for Physical Resistance; and 
  • Survivor Advocacy and Resources for the LGBTQ+ community.
