Female Specific Unknown Contact Management
Surly at TPI makes some excellent points about Unknown Contact Management specifically for females.
I'm teaching a number of seminars later this month for female nurses and this is a very, very important part of what I will be covering.
1.) Teach the obvious visual scan: Due to socialization, women don't often learn a visual scanning technique. Use of peripheral vision and motion sensitive vision should be taught within a specific head movement pattern. Watch a woman performing a sector vision scan, and her head movement is going to look "out of place". That's one "Pre-don't-assault" queue. If in close to unknown contact, scan from hands to head/eyes. When subject moves hands, make obvious eye movement to hands. This says, " I'm watching YOU. and your hands".
