:: Protective behaviours - Level 1 ::
As an early intervention approach, protective behaviours can improve the emotional wellbeing of children, families and individuals of all ages and help them build skills to keep themselves and others feeling safe, with increased tools and ideas to use in their practice. Protective behaviours (PBs) is a practical and down to earth approach to personal safety and self-esteem that encourages self-empowerment and brings with it the skills to avoid becoming victimised. This is achieved by helping people recognise and trust their feelings (early warning signs), build safe networks of support, develop strategies for problem-solving, recognise the influence of unwritten rules and beliefs, improve resilience and have increased awareness of how language can enhance communication and relationships to enable children, young people and adults to feel safe. The protective behaviours process encourages an adventurous approach to life which satisfies the need for fun and excitement without violence and fear, and is relevant to people of all ages and abilities including staff.

  • recognise the effects of unwritten rules on feelings, thoughts and behaviour
