Verbal Self-Defense: Learn to Speak Up for Yourself

Have you been mansplained, talked over, interrupted, and had credit taken for something you just said by a man in the boardroom? Typically when we are in these situations we freeze, and only think minutes or hours later of how we should have responded! In this workshop you'll learn how to break the freeze response and handle these challenging situations with grace. Using techniques from martial arts and hostage negotiation, you'll learn to respond, in the moment, de-escalate the situation and regain your power when you feel powerless.
