Social Work Program Co-Hosts Self Defense Workshop

Social Work Students Learn Safety Techniques and Self-Defense Skills

Marist College's Student Affairs Office and the Social Work department recently co-hosted a second "Women's Basic Self Defense Workshop" led by Mike Skinner and members of his Dojo in Highland, NY. Seven adult and traditional students in the social work program attended and the picture below shows the whole group. Participant comments after the workshop indicated it was an excellent learning opportunity in terms of discussing basic safety techniques and developing skills to defend oneself in the event of an emergency. Student Affairs and Social Work hope to collaborate on offering this workshop again in the near future.
