Gavin de Becker is widely regarded as the nation’s leading expert on violence and safety. This master class is based on the concepts in his book, The Gift of Fear, the #1 bestseller on violence for 25 years.
Using real-life situations as well as his own story to teach lifesaving strategies, Gavin explores safety challenges for women, teenagers and children, and teaches about the most preventable serious crime in America: spousal homicide.
Class participants candidly share their personal stories that become illuminating teaching moments. From these discussions as well as from interviews with an array of experts on violence, we learn that we each have everything we need to predict violence, attain safety, and have less unwarranted fear.
Leading comedic artists, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman and Lena Dunham tell their personal stories involving sexual predators, child abuse, assault, intuition – and survival.
