Behaviours (PBs) is a practical and down-to-earth approach to
personal safety for individuals, families and communities of all
ages and backgrounds.
is a process which encourages self empowerment and brings with
it the skills to avoid being victimised.
is achieved by helping people recognise and trust their intuitive
feelings (gut reactions) and to develop strategies for self protection.
PBs process encourages an adventurous approach to life which satisfies
the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear.
became an accredited PBs trainer in September 1997 and since February
1998 have been working as an independent trainer in four main
sessions for staff wanting to use PBs in specific settings
- schools, police, National Children's Homes, domestic violence

delivery of the PBs process to adults, parent groups and children.
work - I have prepared assessments for the Family Court regarding
the value of PBs in family proceedings.
have included in this site some case
studies showing how PBs may be applied in practice.
is a PBUK website at www.protectivebehaviours.co.uk
which provides a detailed account of the PBs process.
one is to look at the PBs process.
two gives participants the opportunity to put those ideas into
practice in a safe environment.
first day is quite structured, as we have to go through the process.
Day two is more free-flowing and the participants help to create
the agenda. The two days are best spaced up to four weeks apart.
This gives participants the opportunity to think about what they
have learnt on the first day and to observe how people communicate.
Participants will be able to use the ideas for themselves and also
with the people with whom they work.
flavour of PBs can be given in a taster session which hopefully
will encourage the participants to go on a longer course.
