Join PAC: Peer Advocates for Change! Victim Advocacy Training

What to expect:

Presentations will include the topics of rape/consent culture, systemic violence, historical roots of gender-based violence, family dynamics of life in an abusive home, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), attachment and trauma, and red flags in relationships that are controlling, unhealthy and abusive. 

You’ll learn best practices to help your peers as a victim’s advocate and ways to get involved in education and activism…social change efforts right within our campus community!

The Peer Advocates for CHANGE group includes student victim advocates who attend training to respond 24/7 to students in need of support for situations of stalking, relationship violence, sexual assault and/or harassment.  (Not all who attend training end up staffing the phone.  Don’t panic if you are hesitant to be a PACline crisis worker.) 

This training is a great opportunity to enhance your skills regarding advocacy as well as learn about rape culture, rape myths, dating violence, power and control, and learn about the resources on campus and in the community.  It is especially complimentary to the following majors:  criminal justice, social work, nursing, psychology, sociology, community health/health promotion, women and gender studies, and education.

Meeting time TBA!
