Violence Intervention Training:
Don’t look away – get involved!

Everyone can find themselves a witness to a threatening or discriminating situation. Confronted with violence against or harassment of others, most of us have good intentions but only few know how to act and react courageously and deliberately.

Do you?

How to act in threatening situations can be learned. The TU Dresden Welcome Center is delighted to offer a training that will show you how to defuse conflicts in a non-violent way. The training consists of individual and group exercises teaching different aspects of civil courage.

How do we analyze threatening situations?
What strategies can we apply for acting in and reacting to different scenarios?
How should we communicate in a threatening situation?

The training will be directed by experts in self-defense and conflict management:
David Maddox – martial arts instructor and trainer in self-assertion
Ramona Meisel – project manager of Aktion Zivilcourage e. V., trainer in civil courage and conflict management

When & where: Monday, 14 December 4-8 p.m. at TU Dresden Welcome Center (Nürnberger Str. 31a)
