- Safe@Weber Overview: Don’t have time to participate in all of Safe@Weber’s workshops? Don’t worry, this condensed workshop explores the dynamics of interpersonal violence, WSU policies, resources, and supporting survivors. Organizations can choose between a workshop that also highlights consent or bystander intervention.
- CARE - Bystander Intervention: How many times have you witnessed something that just doesn't feel right, but you don’t really know what to do about it? Most of us say we would step in to help a friend or to stop someone from being hurt, but do we know how to do that? Be empowered with the knowledge and skills to effectively assist in the prevention of violence. This workshop will answer these questions and will leave participants knowing what they can do to help stop violence before it occurs.
- Healthy Relationships & Boundaries: This workshop defines many different types of relationships, including romantic, friendship, family, and roommates. The presentation discusses how to set and enforce boundaries, healthy communication skills, consent, and takes a look at what unhealthy/toxic relationships can look like.
- Consent in LGBTQ+ Communities: LGBTQ individuals aren’t always provided examples of healthy relationships and models of consent that are relevant to their experiences. This curriculum is the result of two years of research by the Safe@Weber LGBTQ+ grant team, funded by the Utah Department of Health.
- It's Not Just Physical - Emotional Abuse: Domestic and dating violence isn’t always physical. This presentation reviews the definition of emotional abuse and covers how to identify the abuse cycle and different forms of emotional abuse, the effects of that abuse, and what resources are available.
- Connect the Dots - Intersections of Violence and Discrimination: We know that sexual misconduct and interpersonal violence are not just individual relationship issues, but issues of social justice. This workshop explores how various forms of violence and discrimination intersect with sexual and interpersonal violence.
- Gender Socialization, Violence, and Prevention: This workshop explores gender role socialization, media representation, what you can do about it, and becoming an active bystander.
- Stalking 101 & Safety Planning: What is stalking, and how do you stay safe when experiencing it? This workshop provides foundational knowledge of what stalking is, the different types of stalking, rights, and options in Utah, safety planning, and what resources are available.
- Supporting Survivors: Learn about Safe@Weber Advocacy Services, and how you can support a survivor of sexual misconduct (sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, dating/domestic violence, stalking) in a trauma-informed and empowering manner.
- Customized training: Are you looking for training for your class, department, organization, or group of friends? Safe@Weber provides educational programming, training, and workshops throughout the year addressing violence issues including sexual assault, partner or domestic violence, harassment, and stalking. You can work with the Safe@Weber staff to create a workshop or presentation that best fits your needs or those of your class/organization.
