A network of ESD Instructors
For the public
The network serves to offer an overview of all ESD-related events and programs organized by the affiliated ESD instructors and their respective organisations. It also serves as a point of reference for those that are looking for ESD training or to connect with an ESD instructor.
For ESD instructors
The network offers a supportive platform for instructors to work together, share experience and resources, promote their programs and participate in instructor trainings in order to advance their professional development.
Empowerment Self Defense
Empowerment Self Defense (ESD) is an evidenced-based, primary violence prevention system. It teaches individuals how to interrupt violence by listening to their intuition, assessing their options, asserting boundaries, using de-escalation strategies, and provides tools for a range of mental, verbal and physical responses.
It is a holistic approach to personal safety that addresses the whole spectrum of violence, from verbal harassment to physical violence.
