We are really about using Recognition-Primed Decision Making (RPDM) to teach you how to be safer in the privacy of your own home. RPDM uses 3 phases of processing and situation responses. This is an extremely quick process that is part of the natural thinking process.
Step 1) See/Recognize a problem (Situation Awareness).
Step 2) Recognize clues from previous experiences.
Step 3) Find a solution that works and use it; if it doesn’t work, find another solution.
You already use RPDM on a daily basis, now let us help you expand that mentality into a safety first mentality. This is a natural part of our decision-making process, helping us quickly find a workable solution based on previously experienced problems and outcomes. HHP presents potential problems to you and your family in a non threatening, safe environment so that you may be able to better handle that or a similar situation if it should ever arise.
