The training was facilitated by Dr. Joe Decrepo, Steve Aldefer from America, Dr. Maryam Abu Turki, Samah Hussain and Manar Abu Sneineh. It was about the positive alternative methods of self-violence and self-assertion within the philosophy of active training including respecting the principle of inner peace and listening to others. These trainings focused on personal experiences, lessons learned and learning new positive alternatives to self-protection from violence.
