INTERPERSONAL VIOLENCE PREVENTION
An immersive program meant to educate participants about the warning signs, dangers, and ways to help someone trapped in an abusive relationship. This "choose your own adventure" style program gives participants the opportunity to "walk in the shoes" of someone with an abusive partner. Participants will walk through one of six narratives that are based on real life instances of dating violence. They will make decisions as the individual in the narrative as they attempt to end the abuse that is being inflicted upon them. The program concludes with a debrief of all six narratives. Included in the conversation is how various identities such as gender, race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, and immigration status can intersect with and impact dating violence. 45 to 60 minutes plus 30 minutes of set up time before the start of the program

Participants will also learn the various ways that abusers seek to take power and control over their victims and how we as bystanders can help and support those trapped in abusive relationships. 60 to 90 minutes
