Speak Out

This online course provides with tools and practical activities for noticing your boundaries and getting others to respect them. 

The workshop is centred on the concept of Verbal Self Defense and integrated with expression and body language in a natural way.

This means that it won't be a collection of tips and tricks in order to gain an argument, but a very useful method on how to defend yourself from verbal attacks and harrasment, that becomes a part of your communication style and way to teach others how to treat you.
