#ForTheProtectors

We exist for you, the Protectors. The sheepdogs. The Guardians. The first responders. The mothers. The fathers. The watchful eye. The ones in the corner. We see you.

The purpose of this podcast is to provide Protectors from all walks of life with the skills needed to prevent where possible, prepare for, respond to and recover from violence in whatever fashion it may strike. Whether it’s managing conflict with a teenage child, quelling a dispute at work, or surviving an active shooting incident – we think it’s time that the discussion of violence was no longer taboo.

By shining a light on human commonalities we seek to develop a culture empathy, vigilance and competence when it comes to confronting the most difficult situations imaginable.
