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)

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.
