ACT: Self Protection Workshop
Assess * Choose * Take control 

This FREE trauma-informed workshop was designed specifically for women who have previously experienced some form of inter-personal violence.

Developed and co-lead by trauma therapists from RESOLVE and Brazilian Jujitsu trainers from On the Right, the workshop is 7-hours total and is offered over 2 consecutive evenings; both nights are required.

Women will be supported emotionally and physically and encouraged to choose their level of participation. Attendees will learn:

  • About trauma responses
  • To practice awareness and observation techniques
  • How to ground themselves when tensions are rising (regulate emotions, increase distress tolerance)
  • How to use their bodies for leverage and safely disengage when a situation escalates into an altercation
  • To practice skills that help them experience how it feels to be strong and grounded

Who should attend?

While this workshop was designed specifically for adult survivors of domestic or dating violence, sexual assault, child abuse (or other crime committed by a trusted person), it is open to all women interested in learning self protection techniques.

Feel free to share this information with friends or family members.

Limited space available. Every attendee must register in advance.

If you have any questions, please call Sarah Wells, 585-425-1580.
