Aikido and jujutsu in everyday conflicts

I am trying to apply the philosophies of AIkido especially in everyday conflicts I encounter. IE people who are out of control and yelling at me because they are having a bad day, drug dealers in front of our house staring us down because my partner is the head of the police department, etc. The Aikido part of me wants to just "not be there" for the attack. The jujutsu part of me wants to stun the person and use their energy against them to stop the attack. However, I am not developed enough in either art to really know how to apply them in these types of non-physical confrontations. Can anyone help?
