A new Expect Respect Training programme has been launched to empower students to take a stand against sexual harassment.
It can be awkward to call out inappropriate behaviour or know what to do to in a difficult situation particularly if it involves your friends:
- What would you say if a friend made inappropriate sexual comments about someone?
- How would you respond if you saw your mate was being harassed on social media?
- What would you do if you saw someone making sexual advances toward someone who was drunk?
Through attending the Expect Respect Training Programme, you will become an active bystander equipped with the skills and knowledge that you need to safely and effectively intervene to prevent problematic situations such as the above.
The training will be run by representatives from Rising Sun, the local domestic violence charity and over the three sessions you will learn what sexual and domestic violence is, how to spot the warning signs and what steps to take to safely intervene.
Initally you can chose from three training sessions, each made up of 3 x 1 ½ hours on :
- 8th February, 15th February and 22nd February (3-4.30 in RH1.13)
- 6th March, 13th March and 20th March (3-4.30 in RH1.14)
- 17th April, 24th April, 1st May (11-12.30 in Ef05)
The training sessions will contribute to the Christ Church Extra Award.
