The Psychology of Self Defense

Good short post by Helen Smith, a blogger who also is a forensic psychologist (remember the Profiler show?) She laments the knee-jerk 'say-nothing, do-nothing' advice of popular pundits.
Have you noticed that most of the tips you get in recent years for how to survive a violent crime involve an accompanying psychological maneuver of first trying to make you feel impotent? And instead of suggesting remedies to overcome this impotence, these survival tips usually just tell you to give the criminal what they want. But what they typically don't say is that you can get killed using that approach also.
