This workshop was previously scheduled as an in person workshop, but times are a changing and we are changing with it!  Gain the skills needed to intervene in uncomfortable, inappropriate, or abusive situations.  his workshop will take place over a zoom account, which will be sent to all participants two days out.  This workshop will go over the practical information given during the seminar (i.e PowerPoint, worksheets, understanding the physiological stress & adrenaline response, learning the definitions of tactics, & etc).  The workshop will also include opportunities to discuss a wide range of strategies and interventions.  This workshop gives individuals the tools and understanding of managing adrenaline in rooms where you can be often at the lesser end of power imbalances in a rehearsal room.
