A couple of books might help with the thought processes, evaluating the different scenarios/situations:
- In The Gravest Extreme, by Ayoob
- The Truth About Self Protection, by Ayoob
- The Gift of Fear, by De Becker
It's good to be raising the situational awareness, thinking through the possibilities, evaluating whether you've got exits or options available to you if things go sideways. If only more folks would do this continually, and more would carry the means of their own self-defense, we'd be a far safer society IMO.
Congratulations on your new responsibilities!
