In the course you'll learn the common misconceptions about sexual violence, why people sexually harm others, how sexual violence may impact students, how to respond to disclosures of abuse and how to question students when a report of sexual assault is made. The online format means staff can cover and review the material in their own time as well as ask questions via webinars and discussion boards.
