The “NEW” One-day Introductory Workshop

The One-day Introductory Workshop covers the fundamental theory, games and exercises from the Rock and Water programme.

Trainees are provided with a high quality, 120-page manual (new for 2021) that illustrates the content covered as well as providing information and advice for implementing the programme. As with all Rock and Water trainings, this workshop is active, collaborative and a fantastic way to familiarise yourself or your staff with the Rock and Water programme and to begin to implement it into your work and life. The interactive nature of Rock and Water trainings also make them a fantastic team-building experience.

Topics covered

The Introductory training looks at ten main themes, including:

  • Standing strong (grounding, centering and focusing) – learning to stop and think before you respond; being calm under pressure; emotion regulation.
  • The Rock and Water attitudes (from a physical, mental and social perspective) – what does the Rock or Water attitude feel and sound like? How will others respond to my attitude chosen? When can I choose to use Rock or Water in my everyday life.
  • Body language – first impressions count!
  • Breathing strength exercises – calmness under pressure, clear thinking….able to make a choice.
  • Personal boundary awareness and effective anti-bullying exercises – we all have our boundaries, how do we communicate them; how do we respect those of others?
  • Verbal Communication skills – we can choose our language and tone to suit the situation.
