Women’s Basics Graduates Say…

Skills necessary for any person to respond confidently to unexpected inappropriate situations

The four day IMPACT workshop is more than just an experience. It is experiential learning of skills necessary for any person to respond confidently to unexpected inappropriate situations. I believe that anyone who ever feels concern for their own personal safety owes it to themselves to participate in at least one of the IMPACT courses.

I am better at setting boundaries with people I love

After taking IMPACT, I am better at setting boundaries with people I love, I have heightened awareness skills when dealing with unfamiliar situations, and I feel more confident about myself.  My family members are also more confident about me traveling alone, living downtown, and other situations they deem "unsafe" for a woman.

I find myself sharing IMPACT with others

I find myself sharing IMPACT with others. The experience is supportive of growing my confidence and self esteem in the area of caring for myself which was undermined a few years ago due to an injury.

I hear the voice within saying “no” loudly

The experience was deeply valuable. It is one that is already integrated within my system. I hear the voice within saying "no" loudly as I consider varying options and opportunities.

Before IMPACT, I was angry and looking for a fight

IMPACT has changed my life in so many ways. Before IMPACT, I was angry and looking for a fight. After I was assaulted, I realized I needed to do something. After this class I am more aware of my surroundings and more confident in myself and in my interactions with others. I also have the resources to control myself in my interaction and in my everyday life. Thanks IMPACT team!

I have told at least 20 people about the course

This course exceeded all of my expectations. I feel 200% more powerful, physically AND mentally, after taking this course. It was incredible to be able to experience such empowerment and growth within myself, surrounded by supportive staff and the amazing females in my class. I have been so impacted by IMPACT (heh) that I have told at least 20 people about the course and encouraged them to take it. It is SO worth the cost. Definitely will be back for the advanced course!
