- Respect Me: A Conversation about Preventing Violence
- Topics: Sexual violence, relationship violence, violation, discrimination, sexual harassment, victim dynamics, responding to victims, social stigma, language use
One of the most challenging aspects of violence prevention is helping people develop the skills necessary to have open dialogues about its causes and consequences. For people to have these conversations, they must be able to openly question and articulate the absence of respect that is present in all violence. This workshop provides a unique opportunity for participants to practice such dialogues and develop practical skills that they can employ in their day-to-day lives. This workshop is of particular use to violence educators, student groups, residence halls, rape crisis centers, and progressive businesses.
