Description: This hands-on, interactive workshop teaches that consent is an essential element to maintaining healthy and egalitarian relationships. The importance of teaching consent to adolescents is so they understand consent negotiations. Being able to consent to an activity allows for people to express boundaries and have a clear understanding of other's boundaries and personal space. It is also important for adolescents to recognize how their personal emotions, other people and previous experiences can influence one's decision to give, or deny, consent.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: practice asking for consent and respecting other's consent; define what it means to give consent; identify how it feels to give consent; identify how it feels when someone does not ask for your consent.
