Read the best selling book The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker and be prepared to discuss it at a future Book Discussion Event with Caroline and others who have read this amazing book.
Summary of book: Perhaps we have a bad feeling about someone we've just met, or a little gnawing perception that a situation just doesn't "feel right," or perhaps even a fear that a co-worker might do something harmful. In this book, de Becker, a renowned expert on violent behavior, explains that instead of shrugging off these fears, we need to listen to them, see why we're having them, and act accordingly. Far from being silly intuitions, these fears can truly show when something is wrong and violence might be imminent; if listened to, along with information about how violent people behave, these feelings might protect us from harm. Using examples from cases on which he's worked and even from his own childhood of domestic violence, de Becker shows how instinct, and knowledge, can warn us of impending violence, whether by stalkers, family members, predators, or people in the workplace.
The book is very popular and can be found in bookstores in the area.
