Self Defense - To protect yourself on the streets when you travel or even in a safe house environment you must remain alert and vigilant at all times, but even then there are those occasions when circumstances beyond your control require you to defend your life or the life of another. This class is taught by very seasoned operators with a great deal of experience in self-defense and travel to dangerous locations around the world.

Situational Awareness / Psychology of Survival- While there was no hope for rescue of many individuals, the stories of numerous people who escaped the attack on the Twin Towers on 9-11 have one thing in common. The survivors acted immediately upon their concerns as the situation unfolded. People who were indecisive or debated the issue are today among the dead. When you operate internationally you must be prepared mentally for anything to happen at any time and be ready to act instantaneously. This class will prepare you to be a survivor when the worst happens.

Psychology of a Human Trafficking Victim (Post Rescue)  - Human trafficking victims are in a very unique place psychologically as opposed to most any other kind of victim of crime. Knowing how to interact with them, gain their trust and begin their long road to recovery is essential to the success of your work.
