This workshop provides some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. Throughout the workshop we will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone. Some topics include: active listening, believing survivors, caring for yourself, and making referrals. There will also be time to practice supporting folks through (optional) roleplays.

This workshop is two and a half hours long and will be held at UVic. It’s free of charge, open to students and community members. We have a no late-comer practice.

Prerequisite: Understanding Consent Culture workshop

We recommend that folks interested in this workshop first attend our consent workshop, as many of the ideas in this workshop build on ideas we explored in the consent workshop.
