    College and university campuses are no longer viewed as safe havens. Developing Your Proactive Plan: Campus Safety and Self Defense teaches students how to develop a proactive safety plan to increase their chances of survival in the event of a violent attack or incident. The book emphasizes the importance of safety precaution practices and self-defense preparedness.

    The book guides students through the development of a highly personalized proactive safety plan. Features of the plan include prevention, preparedness, self-defense, physical fitness, and healthy eating practices to encourage overall wellness and routine vigilance. Case studies, a safety survey, and a safety plan guide help readers learn about potential risks, assess their preparedness, and develop a customized security strategy.

    Developing Your Proactive Plan provides students with the tools they need to become active participants in their personal safety and self-defense. The text is well suited for courses in criminal justice, social work, family and consumer sciences, sociology, and psychology. The book is also a useful resource for any individual interested in learning self-protection techniques to feel safer and more secure on campus.
