HYBRID (Helping You the Bystander Respond and Intervene to Disclosures) is a workshop developed for student leaders around the University.
The workshop is designed to empower students to be effective bystanders in their communities, to recognise potentially harmful situations and how to intervene safely. As leaders within the student community, we also want to prepare students with skills on how to respond if someone discloses their experiences of sexual violence. We will cover the statistics on sexual violence in our community, common reactions to sexual violence and we will give you some practical tools to use if someone discloses their experience of sexual violence.
In CommUNIty102 you work to unpack and better understand consent and what relationships look like at Uni. Looking at relationships, community and thinking about how alcohol fits in to all that. This is a workshop that looks different depending on the values of each group. This means you will be able to use the skills and info you learn in the workshop in your own community, making it safer for everyone.There is time set aside to look at consent in legal terms so that everyone is on the same page with what is illegal and what we mean when we say consent. This is the foundation that we will build from as we consider relationships here at Uni.
