This workshop takes a harm reduction approach to the topics of sex, alcohol, consent and sexual violence prevention. Strategies for safer drinking and partying will be explored, and the risks involved when navigating sexual consent under the influence addressed. The ways that alcohol can be used to facilitate sexual violence will be discussed, and how bystander intervention can be used to intervene in harmful behaviour. This workshop is ultimately about creating safer party environments so that everyone can have fun and keep each other safe.
Hosted by The Coalition for Harm Reduction at MacEwan (CHARM), Wellness and Psychological Services, and the Office of Sexual Violence Prevention, Education and Response for Mental Health Week
