How to remain calm in a situation of aggression and intervene in an appropriate manner in order to appease the other person and get out of the aggression ?

Aggression is primarily a process of physiological discharge (emotional aggression and frustration).

The human nervous system is often exposed to a wide variety of stimuli. When an individual’s body is in a state of excessive arousal (excitement), he or she often automatically and unconsciously discharges in response to an emotional “trigger. This “aggressive” discharge occurs via the neural bridge (the connection between two brains/nervous systems via mirror neurons).

The management of aggression therefore begins in the body and therefore by self-regulation. This will be at the heart of this training. Through simple and targeted exercises (neurophysiological exercises, breathing techniques, …), participants learn to regulate the load of their own nervous system. Of course, this cannot be learned in one or two days, but the training provides everything the participants will need to start practicing it themselves in the short term.

When participants are able to self-regulate, to remain calm and approachable (instead of cold and unapproachable) in aggressive situations, they can then more easily prevent or manage aggression from others: they can let their interlocutors (the “aggressors”) discharge consciously and quickly, without prompting them to discharge further.

Based on their psychophysical resilience, participants will then be able to work with a practical toolbox to positively influence the “aggressors” and manage the situation.
