Street Therapy: Emotional Resistance In Action

On April 18th at 7pm est, The Icarus Project is hosting a webinar on Street Therapy. This two-hour webinar will cover the basics of how to care for yourself and others before, during, and after actions. During the first hour, we will share somatic practices you can incorporate into your action preparedness kit, and how to project and communicate them to others verbally and through body language. We will explore how to recognize signs of distress, and build your toolkit to assist those in need. We will talk about trauma and the cycles of the nervous system and what to do when someone is in a state of shock or escalation. We will share practices that will help you support yourself to stay calm and regulated, no matter what is going on. Additionally, we will talk about the importance of healing justice as guiding aspects of organizing resistance, such as forming safety teams and designated emotional support people that extend grounding to the crowd in the form of reminders, affirmations, and guiding requests. We will discuss ways to utilize tools for community mental health care, including preparing support plans in advance and a debrief afterwards. Participants will be provided with supporting materials and resources.
