Green Dot Bystander Workshop (3.5 hours)

Justin Canny, Libby Baldwin, Rebecca Pettitt
Wyatt Hall, Room 204

This training will introduce the basic elements of Green Dot, focusing specifically on the vital role university employees play in establishing and reinforcing the culture in which students and colleagues exist. The program is designed to help employees to integrate within their current job functions key behaviors that establish two norms: first, that power-based personal violence won't be tolerated; and second, that everyone, including faculty members, staff members, and administrators, does their part to keep the campus community free from violence and fear of violence.

Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Prevention and Education

Marta Cady
Wyatt Hall, Room 109

Trauma affects our community. 223 million adults in the U.S. have experienced a traumatic event of some sort at least once in their lives. One in six American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. One in 33 men has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape. These numbers reflect the reports that we know about and don't take into consideration our transgender members or our lesbian, gay, or bisexual community members. Being trauma-informed helps us to courageously support those who have been affected by this type of trauma. To understand this we also need to talk about and acknowledge rape myths and rape culture.

The Language We Use in Response to Sexual Assault

Marta Cady
Wyatt Hall, Room 109

The language we use to convey what occurred in a sexual assault case, whether that be in a formal document as part of a case or in talking with a friend you are supporting, is so important for Puget Sound community members to learn. Language can characterize that event, so learning about how to characterize it in a way that is impartial and non-victim blaming is crucial. Language is key to shifting the paradigm of rape culture that is, unfortunately, part of our everyday world.
