Straight Talk for Middle School and High School Students
Calling all middle and high school students! (no parents please).. Join us for this important session hosted by Br Faraz Iqbal representing the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta at RCM and let's build up our self confidence and positivity! Straight Talk is a youth workshop designed to help Middle School and High School students meet the challenges of maintaining their Muslim identity in today’s climate. Students today are faced with stereotypical comments in school, as well as outside of school, particularly in the media. They face challenges to their identity as Muslims and their self esteem. A low self esteem may have many effects including stress and poor preformance. In this workshop youth will be provided a venue where they can share what they are facing in the current environment. Areas of focus in this first workshop are as follows: 1) Talk about self-esteem: to understand what it is and how it is impacted. At the beginning of this workshop the audience will take a self-esteem survey. This survey will help ISB understand how the Muslim youth fare when it comes to self-esteem in different communities. 2) Developing friends and being an influencer: The concepts here come from Dale Carnegie’s book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” The workshop goes over the 6 concepts that youth can implement to develop their friendships and be a positive influencer. 3) Discuss how the Islamic faith teaches Muslims to be tolerant of other faiths and backgrounds showing specific examples. This is to show the youth that the stereo-types and negative comments are often misconceptions. 4) Role playing scenarios. Here the audience will be split into different groups where they will be assigned a role play (a topic related to maintaining your identity). The objective is to hear how the youth would respond to those scenarios and coach them on the optimal way to handle the situation (based on what was discussed in the workshop). At the end of workshop, the audience should walk away with a toolkit on how to maintain their identity as well as enable youth to become positive influencers in their respective social circles.

She works with families, groups, individuals to find a balance in their lives by overcoming daily struggles of life through self actualization, practice and learning special techniques. The Workshop will accommodate 20 participants total and will close participation after 20 sign ups. Cost to attend is $20. The Anger Management and Improving Communication skills aims at tackling a very 'commonly felt', yet very differently expressed emotion i.e. 'Anger' by everyone. We all have unique and different way of dealing with Anger which is influenced by many factors. And some may not even know the 'right' way of dealing with anger which leads to many other undesirable situations. 'Learning how to protect ourselves appropriately, physically, emotionally, and socially is an important challenge in life. We acquire anger control skills in the course of growing up... We learn how to deal with anger through interacting with others. Most of us learn how to control our anger reasonably well. Some of us remain especially fearful, timid, or conflict avoidant. Other people react to emotional upset with anger and aggression. Still others seem to be controlled by spontaneous rage reactions'. Through this workshop we put the perspective of psychology and management of anger in perspective. We learn about 'healthy anger', signs n symptoms of Anger Problems, Skills to learn to cope with daily stress to prevent future anger issues and much more. If you are interested please sign up with you name, age and occupation. These details will help us understand better the needs of the exact group that will be participating. If you have any questions please feel free to contact sister Aysha Siddiqui via email address email@example.com
