Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response 101
Duration: 6 hours
Coordinator: Ms Emma Heard
Presenter: Miss Kim Fletcher
Learn about all forms of sexual misconduct, how to help its prevention, and respond appropriately to disclosures. Topics include culture change, gender inequality, intimate partner violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, consent, trauma and the impact on the survivor, trauma-informed response to disclosures, ensuring professional boundaries, managing safety and risk, and how to be an ethical bystander. Participants will learn about reporting and support options, both within UQ and external, for staff and students.
Sexual misconduct training is a sensitive subject that requires participants to engage with compassion, discretion and respect. We appreciate that not everyone will feel comfortable participating in such training and would encourage you to reflect personally before choosing to engage.
This course will enable participants to develop an understanding of:
1. UQ’s approach to management of disclosures of sexual misconduct;
2. Trauma informed approaches to disclosure and survivor centric support options
3. The importance of the ethical bystander, and how to play a proactive role in ensuring that the UQ community is a safe and supportive environment.
