Description

Sexual violence has a tremendous impact on everyone. Sexual violence can happen to anyone regardless of any identifying factor. But sexual violence can also be prevented. Join us as we discuss the continuum of violence, consent, boundaries, and how to support survivors in your own life. This webinar is great for all adult audiences to explore options and feel better informed about issues that continue to impact many.

Objectives

  • Discuss the prevalence of sexual violence, dispel myths and misconceptions, and emphasize the importance of recognizing different manifestations.
  • Discuss the importance of believing survivors and validating their experiences. Emphasize the role of friends, family, and professionals in creating a supportive environment.
  • Explore the short-term and long-term impact of sexual violence on survivors, considering aspects such as mental health, relationships, and overall well-being.
  • Address strategies for preventing sexual violence, including promoting consent education, healthy relationships, and bystander intervention.
