Don’t Get Pushed Around Messalonskee W23

$32

with Kevin Webb

Calendar Mar 11, 2023 at 11 am, runs for 1 week

In this 2-hours course, participants will learn how to deal with being pushed around both physically and inter-personally. You will learn how to handle yourself when someone is pushing you around through bossing, bullying, and attempting to dominate during daily situations. You will learn physical techniques for dealing with a literally pushing scenario, and translate that skill set into how to handle someone being domineering verbally. Conflict, whether verbal or physical, has some common components so many of the same strategies can be used to defuse or deal with either type of situation. Come in comfortable clothes as you will be actively participating in the strategies that will then be translated into the non-physical tools. The course is designed for teens and adults. Those under 17 must register with a registering and participating parent or guardian. Limit 20 students.
