Helping a Friend in Distress | 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. | Brown Building, Room 3001

During this 1 hour interactive workshop, participants will learn how to provide effective support to individuals impacted by sexual violence.  Participants will first become familiar with the prevalence of sexual violence at McGill and the various impacts that sexual violence can have on individuals. Then you will learn how to respond to and support people by using appropriate tools and approaches to providing support. Participants will practice these tools and methods through group activities and case scenarios. The workshop will also explore common myths and misconceptions about sexual violence and how that may affect one's ability to effectively respond to and support disclosures.
