The best way to reduce aggression, is to reduce anger through interventions that promote less hostile thought processes such as mindfulness. Mindfulness encourages you to think about your actions and emotions in the present moment – being open and non-judgemental. It involves accepting the situation, not reacting with negative emotions, and shifting to more positive thinking.
This campaign has also been developed in collaboration with Jerome Carslake (NRSPP), Gabrielle Fetalvero (NRSPP Swinburne Intern 2019/20), Kristin Cooke (MUARC Swinburne Intern 2019/2020), Caitlin Xavier (NRSPP Swinburne Intern 2020/21), Amanda Stephens (MUARC), Yacine Khouzami (Budget Direct), and Tim Roberts (Fleet Strategy).
