This workshop for caregivers and educators will focus on the concept of Revoked Consent, which includes changing one’s mind, setting boundaries, and saying and accepting No when it comes to situations with friends, partners, and family members. Figuring out what consent is and being comfortable setting boundaries starts early, and young people need a lot of support. As caregivers and educators, if we can move away from judgment toward a genuine understanding of today’s challenges for the youths in our lives, we will be able to support them and serve as role models.
Through examples and discussion, we will take an honest look at the challenges around consent and the prejudices that complicate the issues. Join us for a safe and constructive conversation about why physical and intimate consent is so much harder to navigate than other types of consent.
