Observation skill and personal safety – workshop
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Markus Kuhn.
This example of a crime-prevention workshop introduces methods which help people learn to notice what is going on around them. It covers methodical scanning, asking the right questions, and telling yourself the story of what is going on around you. People who notice what is going on around them tend to be safer on the street.
The theories discussed include situational crime prevention, and specifically routine activity theory. In routine activity theory a capable guardian is held to be able to reduce crime in the face of a motivated offender and a suitable target. I propose that observation skills make a capable guardian more effective, and in the workshop I offer exercises that should improve observation skills.
