Anatomy of an Attack

We perceive an attack when we believe our lives or well-being are in danger or when we consider that our territory, physical or psychological, has been encroached upon. For example, if an angry three-year old child, arms flailing, approaches an adult, normally such an act is not regarded as an attack. That is, the adult does not consider the child’s action to be a physical threat. The same adult, however, the object of an assault by a gun-wielding assailant will certainly feel he has been attacked.
