What Do You Mean?
Unblurring the Lines between
Consent, Assault, & So Much More

Many young people are undereducated in consent, thus limiting their understanding of what it is and what it is not. Research finds persistent confusion about what constitutes both lack of consent and sexual assault. As youth-serving professionals, we can help bridge that gap to help young people better understand these two relevant and extremely important topics. In other words, let’s work to help “unblur” what for some can be a blurry understanding of consent and sexual assault.

In this interactive webinar, participants will respond to scenarios as well as discuss and explore tips and strategies for communicating “yes”, checking-in, and exploring sexual boundaries between partners.

Objectives:

Specifically, webinar attendees will be able to:

  1. Define what consent is and what it is not.
  2. Identify 3-4 components of what is effectively communicated consent and boundaries
  3. Explain the importance of educating youth on the right to refuse sexual contact and what refusal can look like.
