Participation – It’s not “all or nothing”

August 4 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EDT

We’ve all had reluctant, stressed, or frightened students in our classes – you may have been that student at one time yourself. A key component of trauma-informed experiential ESD and martial arts programs is the power of students to self-select their level of participation to match what they are ready to try without moving outside their comfort zone or stretch zone.

This session will discuss over a dozen practical solutions to incorporate into programs that offer students rehearsal with verbal and/or physical skills (with the instructor or with each other). Instructors with an expansive list of options are better able to support students to find a way to remain present and engaged. The session will explore presenter ideas and attendee-generated solutions as well.

This session is appropriate for both practitioners leading classes or assisting lead instructors and for students who would like to be able to suggest to their instructors some adaptations that would support their increased participation in classes.
