Protective Behaviours (PB’s) is a safety awareness and resilience building programme which helps children and adults to recognise any situation where they feel worried or unsafe, such as feeling stressed, bullied or threatened and explores practical ways to keep safe. Protective Behaviours also looks at identifying support networks for times when we need someone to listen and help. What is Protective Behaviours
Protective Behaviours is based on two key messages:
- We All have the Right to Feel Safe all of the Time
- We can talk with Someone about Anything, even if it feels awful or small
The programme can be used in a wide range of settings by teachers, parents, women’s refuge workers, the police, social workers, youth workers, health visitors and community workers. The approach therefore also provides a useful framework for working together to keep children safe.
Further information and a national practice sharing forum can also be found at PB People www.pbpeople.org.uk
