BUILDING INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITY RESILIENCE

Resilience refers to characteristics that result in positive outcomes after stressful and life changing events. We focus on both the individual level, identifying patterns of positive adaptation, wellness and growth, and building community resilience through effective change and situational management e.g. the capacity to avoid fragmentation of the group, continuing to prosper under times of great pressure and adaptation. Delivered by experienced health and well-being practitioners, this segment explores the cyclic relationship between the holistic needs of individuals and their communities, and extends the discussion to building individual and community resilience in the face of adversity, through emergencies and also post-disaster.

COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM

This prevention-focused presentation aims to educate participants about how they can influence others away from fundamentalist /extremist ideals and toward personal conduct that rewards both the individual, their communities and society in general. In our advocating for education as the best means by which societal violence and violent extremism can be neutralized, participants will be shown the virtue of positive and educative choices being applied directly in their communities. 

UNDERSTANDING SECURITY AND THE RISK LANDSCAPE

There are two aspects to security – (i) there is rarely enough time, money and other resources to secure everything, and (ii) security is not an end in itself. Whilst security and risk management can be seen as complex and overwhelming, in this segment participants will gain insight into the structure and logic underpinning security analysis and assessment; understand the functional aspects of threats, opportunities, risk and risk tolerance, and how these are used to understand the security landscape. Participants will learn how to identify valuable community assets e.g. people, reputation, finances; what should be protected and why; what types of threats (in particular violent extremists and ‘lone wolf’, ‘maverick individuals’) may threaten communities; and identify a systematic approach to prioritizing and managing risks. 

OPERATIONAL MODES OF TERRORISM

This segment will focus on the prevailing operational tactics of terrorist organizations and encourage communities and businesses to employ an imaginative and vigilant approach towards the prevention of terrorism. Participants will learn what kind of behavior or indicators to look for; a range of terrorist objectives; and about behavioral and psychological profiles.

BASIC CONFLICT RESOLUTION SKILLS FOR COMMUNITY LEADERS

Community leaders, religious leaders and community organizations can play a critical role in conflict prevention, resolution and post-conflict peace building. This segment will provide a useful practical overview of the nature of conflict, power and judgment in the community and traverse some basic mediation and conflict resolution strategies as applicable in community and group settings. For those who already have the confidence of their community, this session will empower people and provide them with new strategies and perspectives to help them work more effectively in this important area within their own community or group

“POWER” – RECOGNIZING, HARNESSING AND CHANNELING POSITIVE POWER FOR CONSTRUCTIVE OUTCOMES AND IMPROVED RELATIONSHIPS ©

This segment will empower participants, improve individual levels of confidence and enable enhanced self-awareness. Participants will be introduced to energy and power through practical exercises, learn about energy pathways present in the body and how both the positive and negative channeling of electromagnetic forces can make or break relationships. Participants will be guided to a greater awareness of their positive energy capabilities, and their motives and barriers to change, and will learn self-empowerment and communication strategies that can easily and immediately be applied for positive outcomes in every context of life and in their communities.
