This workshop offers two basic knowledge skillsets.
The deescalation skillset is intended to:
– identify situations which you interpret as being dangerous or having potential for violence
– ensure the safety of the person or persons you think are in danger
– deescalate the rise in aggression and/or potential physical violence
– offer resources for help with no police involvement
The grounding skills workshop is intended to:
– become familiar with what grounding skills are and how can they help
– learn how to identify triggers
– identify bodily measurements of severe discomfort or anxiety once triggered
– learn what grounding skill is best to use based on the level of our discomfort/anxiety
– offer resources for help when all else fails
Donation of $5-10. NOTAFLOF (no one turned away for lack of funds).
** Donations will go to Indigenous People Organizing for Change (IPOC). **
There will be snacks people can munch on throughout the workshop.
There will also be a short break between workshops.
Feel free to bring a notepad and pen to take notes; however, the central points of the workshops will be condensed in a zine for folks to take home, review, and pass on the knowledge.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
