New for 2018/2019

IPV on A College Campus (90 minutes)
Research shows that individuals ages 18-24 are the most likely to experience interpersonal violence. This workshop will discuss the various forms of violence that make up interpersonal violence which includes relationship violence, stalking and sexual violence and analyze how these forms of violence may uniquely impact college students. Furthermore, it will equip participants to provide survivors with both on and off campus resources. Workshops can be tailored to specific populations and audiences upon request.
Supporting Student Survivors of IPV (Faculty/Staff): (90 minutes)
Survivors of interpersonal violence are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders and thoughts of suicide due to the impact that trauma has on their emotional and physical well being. Due to this impact, it is critical that members of our campus community support survivors following victimization. This workshop will equip participants with skills and best practices in supporting survivors of IPV in a trauma informed way as well as discuss on and off campus resources. Workshops can be tailored to specific populations and audiences upon request.
