AC.THA 103 Listening Rather Than Force: Techniques for De Escalating Potentially Violent Situations

Our natural tendency when someone is getting angry at us is often to try and dominate them or to run away. What if there is another way? This course offers techniques that can be used to de-escalate situations that could become violent, in a way that instead builds connection.

Cost

Gift economics is a different way of interacting with money and understanding what something is “worth.”  In a Gift model, goods and services are not sold as they are in a market model of economics.  Rather, they are given freely with no requirement of an exchange.  We believe that the lessons and teachings we give and receive in our workshops are priceless.

At the same time, we do have needs as an organization operating within the current economic and social structures.  Therefore, all participants in our community workshops are offered an opportunity to support our work.  No one is required to give, and no amount is considered too small or too large.
