- Bystander Intervention: Our bystander intervention curriculum works to engage all students as stakeholders in our efforts to end intimate violence. During the workshop, students develop skills to identify moments that could benefit from an intervention, recognize what often holds us back from intervening, and plan what an intervention could look like. We practice using a variety of interventions across a range of situations tailored to individuals’ skills and the needs of the group. Overall, we work to develop a sense of each student’s efficacy to create healthy, safe, and mutual conditions for all of our interactions.
- Consent: Our consent workshops are highly tailored to the needs and concerns of the group we’re working with. They typically involve a discussion of the basics of consent and discussion of scenarios around consent, and can also include a conversation about intra-group dynamics and relationships, relationship to other groups on campus, use of alcohol or other substances, masculinity, social and sexual norms, etc. Our goal is that students start a conversation about consent and sexual violence that they will continue beyond the bounds of the workshop and into their communities.
- Healthy Boundaries: This is a broad-reaching workshop that engages students in thinking about how they approach understanding and communicating boundaries. During the workshop, students work to recognize their own personal boundaries and those of others, discuss the importance of boundaries in building and maintaining relationships, and identify which boundaries may need additional work or attention. We work to frame the idea of having and setting boundaries as foundational for creating deeper, healthier relationships and to addressing future conversations about consent, bystander intervention, etc.
- Partner Abuse 101: This is an introductory workshop which engages students in understanding basic dynamics of relationship abuse. During the workshop, students discuss patterns of behavior around power and control, mutual abuse in relationships, various categories of abuse including cultural and identity abuse, and connections between culture/society and why abuse happens. Our goal is that students build the skills necessary to identify abuse and support someone around abuse.
- LGBTQ-specific Partner Abuse 101: This is an introductory workshop which engages students in understanding basic dynamics of relationship abuse as it relates to LGBTQ people. During the workshop, students discuss patterns of behavior around power and control, mutual abuse in relationships, various categories of abuse including cultural and identity abuse specific to LGBTQ people, and connections between culture/society and why abuse happens. Our goal is that students build the skills necessary to identify abuse, understand harms and dynamics specific to the LGBTQ community, and support someone around abuse.
