What you will learn

Introductory Interview - We will go over your application together and discuss what you hope to gain from the course, and whether this course is right for you. Once we decide that you are in the right place, I will work with you until you feel confident to facilitate the workshop.

 

Session 1 - We will introdue ourselves and do some self reflection exercises. Marcia Baczynski will offer her expertise as we review facilitation basics, being prepared, self care, intention vs. expectation, mandated reporting, land acknowledgements, group agreements, and partnering. We will discuss modelling consent based approaches and self compassion for what the work may bring up for you.  We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.


 

Session 2 -Here we go deep on consent and consent culture. We will learn about moving from the permissive model to a collaborative one.  We will look at a Privilege/Power wheel, power differentials, manipulation and the fawn response. We will experience and discuss the No exercises. Why it’s hard to say and hear No. We will go over the workshop's red flag demonstration and talk about addressing disappointment or feelings of rejection. We will discuss how gendered socialization does and does not impact this collaborative process. We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.


 

Session 3 - We will talk about the part of the workshop that deals with what if I’m a maybe? We will go over why we doubt ourselves and the body check-in exercises(active and seated). We'll talk about when Maybe is a No, and the difference between want, willing, and enthusiastic. We'll discuss the Habitual Yes, and how changing boundaries are normal and that in consent culture you can always change your mind. We'll go over demonstrating boundary zones and the Yes yes No no exercises. We'll talk about how finding shared meaning is essential to collaboration. We'll go over skills for clear communication, curiosity, open ended questions, active listening and the greeting exercises. We will have time to share take-aways and ak questions.


 

Session 4 - Anti racist facilitation taught by Anaya Lambert. We'll talk about prioritizing marginalized students, and navigating racist comments between students. We will explore our own biases and triggers.  We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.

 

Session 5 - Being able to ask for what you want is essential to collaboration. Marcia Baczynski will share her expertise as we discuss why asking for what you want is hard. We'll dicuss too much and not enough, and desire smuggling, and how you still get to have boundaries/change your mind even when you are the one asking. We will do the asking exercise and unpack it.  We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.

 

Session 6 - Jadelynn St Dre will go over the foundations of trauma informed facilitation. We will explore our edges and what grounding techniques work for us. We'll dicuss the four levels of trauma/fundamental social needs and bargaining behaviors.  We'll look at body brain trauma response/ threat responses. We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.


 

Session 7 - We will discuss the Freeze Response, and Backup not Backlash. We'lll talk about strategies to end victim blaming and shaming, and punitive vs. restorative justice. We'll talk about Transformative justice, and the difference between consent accidents and consent violations. We'll look at accountability and intentions vs. impact.We'll explore the difference between Upstanders vs. Bystanders. We'll talk about how everyone makes mistakes, and what do you do next? We'll go ove the anatomy of a true apology. We will have time to share take-aways and ask questions.


 

Session 8 - We will look at taking consent skills online and what we need to know about ending interactions.  We'll talk about how consent is not one and done and how we need to practice practice practice. Aha moments to share. Wrap up with review, questions, and closing personal reflection exercises. We'll talk about having self compassion for what the work  may bring up for you.

Creating Consent Culture Video Course: This new video course is a complement to the book and it will provide you a chance to virtually sit in on the workshop, see how it is presented and  even how to navigate situations in which things go sideways. This video  course will normally be available for $100 but I will make it available to participants for $50 as part of this course price.

 

AI Simulation Session - with a smaller breakout group you will have an opportunity to interact with an AI simulation of youth, practicing things such as handling disclosure, hard questions, and heckling, without fear of causing harm. This is a very special opportunity that I'm excited to share with you!

 

Exit Interview - A chance for each of us to give and receive feedback and to discuss ways that I can support you as a Consent Culture Intro facilitator going forward.

The 8 sessions(which will be recorded) will be on Wednesdays at 4pm PST/7pm EST, although a couple of them may have to be moved to different times/dates. I will strive to make this as conducive as possible for the majority of the group.

This course will normally be offered for $1850, but because this is the first one and compressed for people who are already facilitators, I'm offering it for only $950

A few spots are taken already and I will be capping the course at 20 participants.

Contact me here and I will send you an application.
