Presentations and Workshops
Our program helps women, men, and children gain a sense of power and well being over their lives by sharing correct information about issues regarding their rights, teaching simple prevention strategies to reduce their vulnerability in potentially dangerous situations, and helping individuals identify and expand their support systems within their personal sphere and the community.
About Our Presentations
Our program educators are experienced public speakers who can tailor interactive and informative presentations to fit your group’s special needs. Our presentations are offered free of charge to:
Parents, caregivers, educators, and providers need to become educated about sexual abuse in order to help children reduce their risk of victimization. It is essential to initiate discussions about safety with children and to take time to reinforce safety messages and rules at home, school, daycare, etc.
Taking a self-defense course is our response to fear, helplessness, and the sense of powerlessness caused by the pervasive violence that surrounds us all. A variety of classes have been designed to educate people on the philosophy behind self-defense, through physical techniques such as, combinations and floor work using releases, strikes and kicks.
Working to end sexual violence is the responsibility of all of us. Society plays a vital role in this endeavor. Everyone can help by taking a hard and painful look at the attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate sexual violence, and then assess how these behaviors and attitudes support rape and/or child sexual abuse. The Women’s Center of San Joaquin County offers a comprehensive prevention education program which strives to empower children and adults by teaching them to recognize potentially harmful situations and what skills to use for self-protection.
