  1. Bystander Intervention: Students will learn strategies to safely intervene when they notice unsafe situations.
  2. Healthy Relationships: Students will be able to identify warning signs and risks of an unhealthy relationship and set goals for their own relationships.
  3. Consent, Coercion and Assault: Students will have a facilitated, in-depth conversation about consent: what it actually is and that without it, actions could be considered coercive or abusive.

Additional Topics
The following topics are also available by request: Media Literacy, Human Trafficking, Flirting vs Sexual Harassment, Title IX, Gender – exploring masculinity and femininity, and more!


Adult/Staff Programming

BLAB IT: Responding to Disclosures
Responding to disclosures can be difficult. This workshop focuses on fielding disclosures from both adults and minors in a trauma informed and responsible way.

Introduction to Cleveland Rape Crisis Center
Understand CRCC’s resources and services to survivors including our newly available remote therapeutic and advocacy services, still provided at no cost to survivors and their loved ones.

Human Trafficking 101
This training features information about the signs and indicators of human trafficking and who is impacted in Ohio, interviews with responders and survivors, and how you can help make a difference.

Sexual Violence 101
A brief introduction into defining sexual violence, sexual assault, rape, and sexual harassment and exploring the traumatic effects it can have on survivors. Participants will discuss the dynamics of these multiple forms of violence including their similarities and differences. Participants will look at effective and empowering ways to offer advocacy and support to survivors of sexual violence.

Trauma & The Brain
Introduction to trauma and its biological, physical, and emotional impacts on the lives of survivors. We’ll discuss how trauma-informed care can promote healing and prevention.

Self-Care Workshop (Or Series)
Self-care is more than massages – it’s a skillset and mentality of “filling our own cup” on a daily basis. In our self-care workshop, we break down how trauma impacts us personally, professionally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and psychologically. We share what self-care practices work for us, and discuss our challenges and solutions as a group. This series can be catered to fit anywhere from one to four sessions with the same group.

Self-Care in a Time of Crisis
Self-care in a time of transition and change due to social distancing. Discuss with participants what self-care means to us, assess our own self-care, and share our tactics and resources with each other

Psychoeducational 4-Part Series
This series focuses on raising awareness of trauma’s impact on our lives, and identifying how CRCC services and other resources can support our self-care. In four sessions, expect to cover trauma and trauma-informed care, self-care and coping skills, self-regulation and emotional health, and boundaries and support systems. Most useful for regularly-meeting groups with clinician present (example: SUD IOP groups).
