Drury University is offering training for people interested in teaching others how to prevent rape. On July 30th, the university will host a "train the trainer" session through the SAFE program. It's the first time training for this program has been available in this region. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.
Mark Geiss is the associate director of campus safety and security at Drury University...Amy Lewis is a Drury professor and teaches self-defense classes. Both of them already know some self-defense techniques.
Geiss and Lewis will polish their skills July 30th during an all-day training session that will certify them to teach the SAFE course to Drury University students, faculty and staff. SAFE stands for Self Awareness and Familiarization Exchange and is a rape awareness and prevention program. Lewis says the SAFE program emphasizes awareness. She says it teaches women to trust their instincts.
She says the SAFE program also focuses on helping women project confidence when they're by themselves.
Lewis says it's important for universities to provide rape prevention and awareness courses.
The July 30th course will equip participants to teach the SAFE program to others. Registration is open to the public. Information is available by calling 873-7352. We also have a link to information on our website KSMU.org
