At some point in our lives, we all get hurt by other people. We also hurt others. When this happens, we may want to explore the best way to respond to the pain that is inflicted on us and vice versa. Many factors get in the way of using productive defense mechanisms upon being hurt. This workshop provides a space to explore constructive interventions to relationship conflicts and to promote healthy interactions. This workshop is based on the ESPERE methodology, which is based on Paulo Freire’s Popular Education approach.
