Let’s stop sexual violence before it starts
At Te Whare Tāwharau, we offer four ‘wanna know’ workshops, which give you the opportunity to learn more about sexuality, consent, intervention methods, and resisting sexual violence.
Flip the script is a workshop series which is evidenced based sexual violence prevention for women. It involves 12 hours of training in a safe and inclusive environment where you will learn to identify the warning signs of sexual violence and coercion, explore and expand your understandings and beliefs about relationships, sexuality, and sexual violence, and learn practical physical techniques that can be used to resist sexual violence.
Bringing in the bystander is designed to empower students to be effective bystanders in their communities. It teaches you how to recognise when a situation is potentially dangerous and how you can intervene safely in situations in your life. This program is discussion based. You will learn through real-life examples, to contextualise the different ways you can intervene, depending on the situation you’re in. You’ll also work through scenarios so you feel comfortable responding effectively if similar situations occur in your life.
CommUNIty 102 is a brand-new workshop designed in Dunedin for first-year students in our city. This program looks at consent and the different pressures you might face in different relationships, and how you can respond to these pressures. It’s a discussion-based program which emphasises talking about our own experiences and solutions that we could use. There is a strong emphasis put on how to create safer communities and how we can look out for each other.
HYBRID (Helping You the Bystander Respond and Intervene to Disclosures) is a workshop developed for student leaders around the University. Whether a university club or association exec team, demonstrators and tutors or just someone who wants to lead the way in keeping our university community safe from sexual violence.
