Stand your Ground

Become a powerful individual!

‘Stand your Ground’ empowers young women who want to become the master of their own life path.  

The training aims to support you in your journey to becoming powerful individuals. You will increase your self-confidence by discovering and believing in your strength. Experience how this newfound power translates into your communication and results in a more respectful attitude of others towards you.  

About the training

In 4 active meetings we will teach you how to increase:

  • Self-Awareness
    Increase your body awareness, attitude, emotions and reaction patterns
  • Self-Confidence
    Feel your strength and learn to convert this power into action
  • Self-Control
    Deal with situations that throw you off balance, without losing touch with yourself
  • Stepping into Action
    Learn to act in ‘paralysing’ situations!

‘Stand your Ground is about how not to lose your sense of self in another, to be able to connect and communicate clearly with others, while feeling  powerful enough to make your on choices in life. 

The training is a mix of theory and practice. We use physical, psychological and social exercises to connect you with your inner strength both emotionally and mentally. We will work on posture, presence and use of your voice. And, although this is not a self-defence course, you will learn some useful techniques to fend off attackers when necessary.   

For whom 

The training is for female WUR students who want to learn how to feel and act more confident. Are you a student who:

  • sometimes feels disempowered?   
  • feels stuck in a toxic relation?  
  • experienced violence, discrimination, or often feels intimidated? 
  • wants to learn how to set and guard your boundaries?
