Safe Zone Advanced Workshop: Moving Forward With Communal Response

Submitted by Debra Bolton

With Domestic Violence Awareness Month concluding, we encourage the Wildcat community to join for one final advanced Safe Zone workshop for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Working to end interpersonal violence on K-State's campus must continue past the month of October, as every person plays an important role in eliminating violence on campus. The workshop will take place from 1-2:30 p.m. today, Oct. 30, via Zoom. 

Register for the workshop online.

We will explore ways to collaborate and co-create methods/materials that best support our departmental needs, while still engaging in violence prevention and education efforts. Additionally, this session will discuss ways a person can intervene in interpersonal violence if:

  1. Someone discloses they are currently or previously experience(d) interpersonal violence.
  2. You suspect someone is experiencing interpersonal violence.
  3. You witness abusive behavior or violence.

Finally, CARE is beginning to work on creating new educational workshops and pieces of training to launch in spring 2021. At the end of the workshop, there will be an opportunity for participants to share feedback on topics and research areas they would like to see CARE expand upon.
