The initiative of these free courses, with the collaboration of the City Council, is resumed due to the success obtained in the previous edition
Given the success of last year’s call, the local judo club, Sonkei, and the Ermua City Council have organized free training workshops against ‘bullying’.
In these workshops, a work methodology is used that chooses to teach children directly, instead of the adults on whom they must depend. They are shown positive behaviors to behave and act in the face of any type of aggression, providing them with some simple guidelines to follow that they will quickly understand and assimilate.
In this edition the activity has expanded the population to which it is directed. Last year the workshops were given to the child population, between 5 and 12 years old, and this time youth from 13 to 18 years old will also be able to participate. It should be noted that last year almost a hundred students received this training in the municipality.
To receive more information and reserve places, you can ask for Adrián Riaño, at the Ariztmendi fronton on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. or write to the email [email protected].
The free courses will be held at the Aritzmendi fronton at the hands of an accredited and qualified teacher in ‘anti-bullying’, bullying and child self-defense.
Places are limited. For the population from 5 to 12 years old, the workshops will be held every Friday, from October 21 to December 9, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and youth from 13 to 18 years old can participate in the workshops, on the same dates, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The objective of these workshops is to provide this population group with various tools so that they know how to react appropriately and can defend themselves in situations of bullying.
To do this, the program is complemented and cohesive with other practices implemented in schools. People who are witnesses to the harassment are even involved in solving the problem.
In the case of this training, the participating population combines a theoretical part with another more practical phase. Thus, students receive information about the different forms in which bullying can manifest itself (verbal, social or exclusive, psychological, sexual, physical and cybernetic), and later learn, through games and activities, to deal with these violent situations. and to resolve any conflicts that may arise from them.
The entire participating population will receive a T-shirt and a backpack as a gift.
Before these training sessions, an informative talk was offered to families interested in the subject, to learn about, detect and act against bullying.
