Practice: 4 role-playing scenarios

1. Mental role-playing where the provider imagines surviving various types of potentially life-threatening assaults will help the provider not freeze.

2. Mental role-play the attacker being very close and grabbing, punching and choking — with the provider escaping.

3. Practice mental role-playing and physical skills. To build confidence, there must be some form of physical practice. It would be like reading a book on how to play pool and then going to a local pool hall and expecting to win you first game.

4. Imagine more probable attacks based on documented types of attacks likely to occur.
