This webinar will explore sexual violence within the context of the classroom. We will discuss disclosures and the nuances of how to respond to a disclosure, youth rights, mandated reporting, confidentiality requirements, and virtual settings. We will also examine and provide some guidance around trauma informed teaching to mitigate trauma and allow students who have experienced trauma to participate and access support.
