On this episode of Disrupting the Dominoes, Arlene chats with Dr. Christine DiBlasio and Nancy Keller, leaders of The Safety Team. The Safety Team, Inc., is a 501(c)3 Vermont nonprofit organization dedicated to the safety, empowerment, resiliency, and well-being of women. Part of their work is their revolutionary TESD program, which utilizes the fundamentals of Empowerment Self Defense and therapeutic healing practices as an integrated approach to healing and violence prevention. In this episode, they discuss the program and the importance of physical movement and somatics in providing a holistic approach to therapy and healing. In all of The Safety Team’s program offerings, participants find their voice, learn practical skills, reclaim a sense of power and control, heal from trauma, develop resilience, and as a result, reduce their risk of assault. Dr. DiBlasio is a strong believer in empowering individuals through knowledge and skills.
