Counseling and Wellness Services at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill just released its training opportunities for Spring 2012. CWS offers HAVEN and One Act trainings, which are available to all students, faculty, and staff at UNC.
HAVEN is a collaboration between the Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling and Wellness Services, and the Carolina Women’s Center. The program helps trained individuals respond to sexual and relationship violence in the campus community and become informed allies for survivors of interpersonal violence. By becoming a HAVEN ally, you help create safe spaces on campus for students to obtain information, engage in discussion, and receive referrals.
Training information, schedules and registration information are available at http://safe.unc.edu/get-involved/haven-training/
One Act is a bystander intervention training program that teaches students, staff, and faculty members how to recognize the early warning signs of interpersonal violence. The training provides you with concrete skills and gives you the confidence to act to prevent violence when you see warning signs.
For information on One Act, please see http://campushealth.unc.edu/ipv/oneact/one-act-training-dates.html. To register for a training or arrange for a group or club to be trained, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Signing up for HAVEN and One Act trainings are great ways to become allies for survivors of interpersonal violence and also to take an active part in preventing these violent acts from occurring. We strongly encourage all students, staff, and faculty members at UNC to become HAVEN and One Act trained!
Seats fill up quickly, so make sure to sign up soon!
