School on the de­fen­sive

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

work­shops are valu­able be­cause if a boy finds him­self in a threat­en­ing sit­u­a­tion, it is im­por­tant that he knows how to deal with this in the safest way pos­si­ble.

“Us­ing demon­stra­tions and role­play, Steve Fin­cham showed the year eight boys how to in­ter­pret the dan­ger signs that could lead to an ag­gres­sive sit­u­a­tion, meth­ods in which to dis­tance them­selves from that en­vi­ron­ment and then, if that isn’t pos­si­ble, tech­niques that may help them to dif­fuse the sit­u­a­tion.

“The boys re­ally en­joyed the day and hope­fully took away in­for­ma­tion which will help them should they ever need it in the fu­ture.”
