WORKSHOP 3 - Self-Defence

The final session is all about simple physical self-defence for those moments when conflict has become unavoidable. Rather than the traditional presentation of risk and threat on all sides which can only promote avoidance strategies, the desire here is to foster proactivity sooner, so women and girls can assert themselves before the threat level rises.

WORKSHOP 2 - Voice and Physical Presence

The second workshop looks at developing a toolkit of de-escalation tactics through use of voice and physical presence. This assists in establishing healthy boundaries and reframing victimisation through greater recognition that responsibility for conflict and abuse is never the victim’s.

Date/Time: 
Wednesday, 19 December, 2018 -
19:30 to 21:00

WORKSHOP 1 - Situational Awareness and Conflict Management

The first workshop starts with Situational Awareness, which trains the observer to explore the environment for points of advantage or threat. This increases confidence in the decision-making process which enables women and girls to set boundaries earlier and therefore limit harassment and abuse to a bare minimum.
