IPV on A College Campus (90 minutes)
Research shows that individuals ages 18-24 are the most likely to experience interpersonal violence. This workshop will discuss the various forms of violence that make up interpersonal violence which includes relationship violence, stalking and sexual violence and analyze how these forms of violence may uniquely impact college students. Furthermore, it will equip participants to provide survivors with both on and off-campus resources. Workshops can be tailored to specific populations and audiences upon request.

Supporting Student Survivors of IPV (Faculty/Staff, 90 minutes)
Survivors of interpersonal violence are more likely to experience anxiety, depression, PTSD, eating disorders and thoughts of suicide due to the impact that trauma has on their emotional and physical well being. Due to this impact, it is critical that members of our campus community support survivors following victimization. This workshop will equip participants with skills and best practices in supporting survivors of IPV in a trauma-informed way as well as discuss on and off-campus resources. Workshops can be tailored to specific populations and audiences upon request.

Survivors Note

If you have experienced interpersonal violence, joining The Movement may be an empowering experience for you. It may also be triggering. Please keep this in mind as you apply to determine if engaging with The Movement is the best decision for you at this time. There is absolutely no need to disclose any prior experience of interpersonal violence. However, if you do, please note that the individuals collecting these applications are responsible employees. That means they have an obligation to report all disclosures of interpersonal violence to NC State University. If you disclose incident(s) of sexual violence (which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, stalking, and relationship violence) involving yourself, or any members of the NC State community, we have an obligation to report that to the NC State University Title IX Coordinator. After a report is made they will reach out with an email offering resources and a chance to meet, which you have the right to accept or decline.
