Fisher-Bennett Hall, room 330 (Grad Lounge)

Facilitated by Jessica Mertz, Director of Penn Sexual Violence Prevention and Interim Director of the Penn Women's Center

If a student discloses an occurrence of sexual violence, would you know what to do? What resources are available to your students and to you as an instructor? How might we navigate these traumatic issues both inside and outside the classroom?
This workshop is intended for graduate students and anyone in an instructional role. We will be discussing basics such as mandatory reporting obligations and Penn resources. But we will also consider a more expansive set of best practices around pedagogy and various forms of sexual violence, including but not limited to abusive relationships, harassment, stalking, and sexual assault. We will work through several scenarios in which disclosure by a student might occur and strategies for responding.

This event is sponsored by the English Department and the GEA and is open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

If you have any questions or comments about this workshop please reach out.
