Many trainings offer guidelines on how to approach tough conversations or difficult people using conflict resolution theory and specific language. Applying these can be difficult, however, when the stress is high or when confronting a bully. Without added skills to regulate the nervous system, many people become reactive, give up or simply avoid what needs to be discussed.
Other programs do focus on teaching coping mechanisms that affect the nervous system, such as mindfulness, but in ways that lack integration with real life applications. Even after years of practice, people may still feel dissatisfied and disempowered, unprepared to enact needed changes.
Using research from neuroscience, innovative somatic practices, martial arts disciplines, and philosophies and theories on human behavior and conflict resolution, Respectful Confrontation creates a multi-dimensional approach that helps people take theory and integrate it into daily life for a confident, dexterous use of assertiveness that is mutually empowering.
