Consent and Leadership: Consent Advocate Training
Sat, Apr 3 at 10:30am
A Consent Advocate is a person who steps in and supports someone involved in a consent incident. They’re rarely professionals, just people with training who can offer practiced support when things go wrong. It’s not an easy role, but it makes a huge difference in how an organization or group gets through a consent incident. Having a consent advocate, ideally two, on hand will reduce the overall stress, speed healing, and improve outcomes. This workshop covers the basics of what it means to be a Consent Advocate: what it is, how you do it, why it’s worth doing, and the difficulties that come along with it. We will practice the skills of bystander intervention and emotional/psychological first aid. Both things you’ll need to provide support for people who have experienced harm.
3 Hour Online Zoom Workshop with Q&A throughout. Handouts and Zoom link will be emailed on the morning of the class.
