De-Escalation and Defense

Today we learned how to (WITHOUT hurting the poor "innocent" patient) get out of holds when people are trying to grab, choke, pull your hair, or bite you. Normally, I'd respond by doing whatever the hell is necessary to keep the person from killing me...but this is psych, where apparently pushing on somebody's jaw hinges to get them to release your ARM from their TEETH is "assault". Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot. If somebody is BITING ME, I think I'm allowed to poke at them a little.

BTW...I RULE at making people stop, according to this class.

But you know what my number one self defense technique is? NOT LETTING PEOPLE GET BEHIND ME OR NEAR ME!
