Protective Behaviours (PBs) is a universal empowerment program
As a holistic approach for everyone, the PBs program is integrated into the school curriculum, reinforced at home, and delivered in communities to educators, professionals, and families.
For children, Protective Behaviours education focuses on personal safety, which enables them to assert their right to physical and psychological safety and to seek help from trusted adults if they feel unsafe.
This universal framework consists of themes, strategies, and concepts that develop personal body safety and life skills. It teaches children emotional literacy, assertiveness, resilience, persistence, optimism, to problem solve and be adventurous in safely risking on purpose.
In Australia, the origins of PBs served as a child abuse prevention program. Although the PBs program applications have universally evolved over the years and are known by other names, the fundamental foundations as a body safety program remain consistent.
