During the COVID-19 pandemic, many Asian American Pacific Islander communities have faced increased race-based harassment. This 90-minute class introduces strategies that can be helpful in the face of race-based harassment, with opportunities to practice in role-plays against a mock assailant. This class covers:
- Adrenaline management skills to regulate our own emotions
- De-escalation strategies to use with the assailant
- Verbal boundary setting techniques
- Best practices for bystander intervention when witnessing harassment or other unsafe situations
This class is for AAPI identified and presenting individuals. Limited to 25 participants in each class. This class is offered in partnership with our sister chapter, IMPACT Boston.
