Safer Spaces: Consent and Sexual Assault – Raising Awareness
This workshop is designed and delivered by the Liaison Officer (Harm Reduction) in the Office of the Dean of Students.
During this interactive workshop for faculty, staff and graduate students, participants will become familiar with the extent of the problem of sexual assault in the community and will have the opportunity to examine the different impacts sexual violence can have on an individual. By defining consent and sexual assault, and by debunking commonly held myths and misconceptions about sexual assault, participants will gain a better understanding of how these misconceptions can hinder our ability to provide support to people affected by sexual violence. In turn, the workshop will also provide participants with the necessary tools and information to effectively respond to and support disclosures of sexual violence using interactive small group scenarios, media analysis and videos.
