There are some topics that require more time to go deep and build a strong foundation. Many of these intensives are skills-based and provide ample time to practice and get individual feedback.
Consent and Leadership
Approaching consent from a leadership perspective requires an ever-expanding skill set. Usually done over a long weekend, this intensive covers a comprehensive set of topics to help leaders in the modern world both understand and manage issues of consent. Suggested for leadership teams, boards, managers, organizers, and anyone who holds power and/or makes decisions for others.
Consent Advocate/Safety Team Training
Consent advocates help create more consensual spaces through education, support, and helping with consent incidents. It's a specialized role most people can learn to do if they have good communication, boundary, and emotional regulation skills. This intensive, usually done over a weekend, will train folks in the skills needed to create a sense of safety in your space, including trauma-awareness, Consent-Focused Psychological First Aid, and more. Great for support teams, conference work, and accountability and safety teams.
Writing Codes of Conduct, Consent Policy, or Procedure
This intensive is designed to take you from a blank sheet to an organized draft. We'll facilitate the process with your group or committee to create the policy and procedures that are right for you. Often done in 4 sections spread out over a couple months.
Bystander Intervention & De-Escalation Skills
Both individuals and organizations can use training for the difficult task of defusing a problematic situation, keeping it from becoming a crisis. This intensive focuses on working through realistic scenarios so participants can both learn and practice the skills of bystander intervention and de-escalation. Because of frequent breaks, this intensive is at least 3 hours.
