Students Age 8 and Up
Stand Up for Yourself without Knocking People Down
Learn the basics of assertive living: How to express who you are without fear and without bullying. Are you passive? Are you aggressive? Understand your communication style and how it affects people’s response to you. Learn about body language, attitude, word choices and conflict. This workshop is fun and interactive. We learn by doing: students role-play real problems to find the best solutions.
Understanding Anger & Conflict
Anger has gotten a bad reputation lately as the
emotion we aren’t supposed to feel. But anger is a
normal human emotion, like joy or fear or sadness.
Suppressing or denying anger stresses the body and
diminishes our health. We learn what causes anger,
how it affects our body and mind, and how and when
to express it. We explore strategies to handle
real-world conflicts that you suggest.
See how attitude, tone of voice, relaxation and a little practice can help you cope with mean-spirited comments and actions. Discuss the types of bullying and the difference between a person having a bad day and a bully. We don't bully back -- we stick up for ourselves.
Basic tips to calm nerves, control body language and improve presentations. Students rehearse short speeches with constructive audience feedback.
