Choices- Emotional Awareness & Self Defence Program
Choices - Emotional Awareness and Self Defence Program for Primary and Secondary Schools
This program looks at mental self-defence and awareness for today’s school lifestyle. This course is suitable for both Primary or Secondary aged students, with the course content being tailored to suit the age, level of understanding and maturity of the group.
We discuss participants’ options, choices and consequences and explain how their consequences create the culture that shapes their day-to-day life. Participants leave with a vastly deeper understanding of how to control difficult situations, how their attitude impacts on their successes giving them a feeling of empowerment to change their lives for the better.
Learning Outcomes: Participants develop increased awareness of their emotions, the impact of their attitude and an ability to know and accept themselves.

Defusing potential situations
Self-awareness, being assertive and confident
Learning about options, choices and consequences

Avoiding potentially difficult situations
Prevention & easy steps to identify one’s vulnerability
