Sexual Abuse: Identification and Response Channels
Sexual abuse is an area of human behaviour which, when discovered, quite understandably often evokes extreme reactions, due in the most part to ignorance, fear, and guilt. Sexual abuse is not an occasional deviant act but instead a devastating commonplace fact of everyday life. Forms of sexual abuse are subjects clouded by myths, contradictions and confusions, resulting in a topic easier to be avoided then confronted.
Our module offers everything about what accounts of sexual abuse, warning signs, its various aspects and how to deal with trauma/shame. Every workshop leaves the audience with a sense of empowerment in terms of information and awareness. Our aim is to equip students with adequate information to look after their safety, identify triggers and reach out for help.
The workshop has been curated based on international curriculums and mental health frameworks. The workshop covers the following themes:
To understand the meaning of abuse and its various forms
To understand the implications of sexual abuse on an individual
To identify trigger warnings and signs of sexual abuse
Learning to confront situations of sexual abuse as victims and bystanders
To identify legal mechanisms and response channels available
