CARE Overview (15-30 minutes)

This presentation provides a brief overview of services available at CARE. We discuss how survivors of sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking can access the confidential support and advocacy from CARE. We also provide an opportunity to answer any questions.

Power-Based Personal Violence 101 (45-60 minutes)

What is power-based personal violence? How many people experience these types of violence? How does violence affect someone? How can I help prevent it from happening? All of these questions will be covered in this introductory level workshop about power-based personal violence, consent, and supporting a survivor.

Power-Based Personal Violence 102 (45-60 minutes)

Power-based personal violence is an epidemic in the United States and around the world. In this workshop that builds off of our Power-Based Personal Violence 101 session, participants will develop skills in media literacy and learn how they can make a difference in the prevention and response of power-based personal violence. Participants are highly encouraged to attend the Power-Based Personal Violence 101 workshop prior to attending 102, but it is not a required prerequisite.

Healthy Relationships (45-60 minutes)

The good news: you’re likely going to be in a great relationship at some point in your life. The bad news is that relationships don’t come with a user manual. This workshop is designed to help students learn about what makes a relationship healthy, how to keep relationships healthy, and how to help a friend or loved one in an unhealthy relationship.

Supporting A Survivor (45-60 minutes)

Everyone knows someone who has been sexually assaulted or harassed; but we don’t always know how to best support them. This workshop, open to students, faculty, and staff, focuses on strategies to best support survivors. Participants will also learn about trauma response and how to refer someone to CARE. 

Boiler Up and Intervene (45-60 minutes)

In this 1-hour interactive workshop, participants will learn about bystander intervention, what stops people from intervening in situations, and how they can confidently and safely intervene in dangerous situations. The workshop will also cover how to recognize a potentially unsafe situation, practical tools for intervening, and practice with real life scenarios. Participants may find attending Sexual Violence 101 prior to this workshop is helpful, but it is not required. 

Note: A brief version of the CARE Overview is included in every program.
