Why this course?
This 50-Minute workshop evolved out of our instructor curriculum in self-defense. As we researched the current attitudes, conversations, and empirical work on boundary setting as it related to personal authority, we came to an unsettling realization:
- the self-defense world assumes boundary setting is easy
- asserts boundary setting automatically resolves conflict & prevents violence - and -
- a set boundary is respected with no consequence
These assumptions are not only false, the thinking ignores the reality of violence & relationship [particularly with women].
Join 500Rising's founder, Tammy Yard-McCracken, in changing how we think about boundaries. We talk about what boundaries are, what is needed to create a boundary, and how to weaponize boundary-setting in self-defense.
