    Fall 2017 Counseling Center Workshops

    Consent 101

    The aim of the workshop is to give students a clear understanding of what sexual consent is and to facilitate conversations about consent. It is so important that people are properly informed of consent, respecting other peoples’ boundaries and not being ashamed of willingly engaging in or rejecting sexual activity. Learning about consent is also vital to identifying sexual assault and supporting survivors of sexual assault by outlining and understanding that sexual activity without consent is a crime for which only the perpetrator can be to blame.

    Coping with Grief

    Many of us have had the experience of losing someone important, whether they were a friend, family member, pet, or someone else. Unfortunately, grief is one of the universal human experiences, and it can also be one of the most confusing and complicated processes we each go through. Each person grieves differently; however, this workshop will highlight commonalities across our grief experiences, while also emphasizing and discussing the wide variety of ways in which our grief may progress based on a number of different factors.
