Sister Courage: Workshop One

12th December 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
hamilton house BS1 3QY + Google Map

This series of workshops looks at reclaiming control for women in situations where harm may become present. 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. Find out more here.

This series of workshops looks at reclaiming control for women in situations where harm may become present. The final session is all about simple physical self-defence for those moments when conflict has become unavoidable.
