Feb. 1: Self-Advocacy and Navigating Intense Conversations
Have you ever found yourself at a loss for words, unable to speak up in challenging exchanges with co-workers, bosses, or family members? That moment is called ‘the freeze’ and is part of the ‘fight, flight, freeze’ phenomenon. Women are socialized and conditioned to shut down in these moments, but this can be rewired from the inside out.
You will learn simple and practical techniques to break the freeze in difficult situations and get you back into a place where you can find the words, powerfully advocate for yourself and navigate these moments from a visceral sense of your personal power. This dynamic and interactive session also includes physical self-defence tips and techniques.
This event is open to all military members, veterans, DND employees, and their families.
