Request a workshop from CARE this fall

Submitted by Shanese McGregor

The Center for Advocacy, Response and Education, or CARE, offers a variety of interactive workshop options for K-State students, faculty and staff members.

Presentations are designed to engage audience and offer insight about best-practices from the advocate's extensive experience working with survivors of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking and sexual harassment.

The following CARE workshops are available:

  • CARE 101: An overview of what the CARE office does, what services we offer, and what advocacy, education and prevention looks like. CARE 101 also discusses the different ways to support survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence through trauma-informed care and practices.
  • Consent 101: Participants will learn the definition of consent, what consent looks like, what it doesn't look like, and situations where consent cannot happen. This presentation also can be tied into a longer presentation.
  • The Reality of Sexual Violence: An overview of what sexual violence is, its prevalence and the different forms it can take. Participants will learn the definition of sexual violence, common myths about victimization and perpetration, and how to support survivors.
  • The Reality of Relationship Violence: An overview of what relationship violence is, particularly dating and domestic violence. Participants will learn more about what dating and domestic violence are, the concept of power and control, as well as how to maintain a healthy relationship with your partner.
  • Healthy Relationships and Boundaries: Discusses the concepts of what makes a relationship healthy, boundaries with partners and/or friends, open communication and love languages.

If you would like to have someone from CARE come to your location — residence hall, community, class, etc. — to give a presentation, facilitate a discussion, or provide prevention education materials, please complete the online workshop request form. For preparation and planning purposes, please make your request at least two weeks in advance.

CARE advocates are available to meet with K-State students, faculty and staff members who have experienced sexual violence, dating or domestic violence, stalking, or sexual harassment. Advocates offer support and aid survivors in exploring their options.
