Understanding Sexual Harassment: The Not-So Hidden Acts of Privilege and Power

Sexual harassment is a prevalent and pervasive social epidemic that has a devastating impact on our community. This workshop will increase your understanding about the dynamics of sexual harassment, the relationship with privilege and power, and its varied faces while increasing your awareness about appropriate responses and interventions. The workshop will use dynamic interactive breakout sessions and audiovisual tools to explore the psychological impact, aftermath and empowerment strategies for survivors of sexual harassment. The workshop will explore appropriate responses for survivors as they disclose or report in the media, within social work classrooms, in private practice settings, in agency settings, and within your communities. Countertransference exercises will be utilized to examine the impact of power and control on social workers.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
