People are open to radicalization when they have not been integrated into society; not necessarily because they rejected us and our values, but because in many ways we have rejected them and theirs. This isn’t about assimilation. It’s about lack of acceptance and support from family, peers, and society. If we are to reduce radicalization, we must first understand its genesis.
This deck isn’t for everyone. It’s a peek inside the thinking of individuals who may be prey for groups who seek to radicalize. The purpose of this deck is three-fold: become familiar with the precursors that may lead to radicalization, build the Skills & Attitudes of resilience to help recognize and respond to the indicators, and through awareness, support proactive measures to reduce the incidence of radicalization in America.
Use this deck individually or in groups to build a greater understanding of those vulnerable to radicalization. Use it as a training tool for public service personnel and practice the Skills & Attitudes of resilience in order to develop a more organized and collaborative response. Use it as a teaching tool in secondary and post-secondary education to help students recognize and respond to threats. Use it to teach the Skills & Attitudes to those vulnerable to radicalization that they might develop a stronger response to any such enlistment.

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
