Receiving a disclosure can feel intimidating if you don’t know how best to respond, which is why the Anti-Violence Project has designed this workshop to address how we can all support the survivors in our lives.
Throughout the workshop we will cover the very important differences between support, disclosure and reporting and provide some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. We will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone, including: active listening, believing survivors, busting myths, showing empathy and making referrals.
While the focus of this online workshop is supporting survivors of sexualized violence, many of the topics and skills we cover will be applicable to support in other contexts.
These free workshops are two hours long and have a no late-comer policy. Open to students, staff, and faculty as well as community members!
Date & Time: April 14th, 5 – 7pm PST
