UNDERSTANDING ALLYSHIP & SUPPORTING SURVIVORS

Presented by Caitlin Jones, brought by The Spring of Tampa Bay's LGBTQ+ Roundtable
What is allyship? An opportunity. Participants in this training will use an intersectional lens to take a dive into what it means to be an active ally, and will learn how to apply these allyship skills when supporting domestic violence survivors.
BYSTANDER INTERVENTION 2.0
October 22nd | 10:00-11:30 am | REGISTER HERE
Presented by Kira-Lynn Ferderber, Prevention Educator from SPARCC, brought by the Spring of Tampa Bay’s LGBTQ+ Roundtable
Bystander Intervention is one of the most popular skillsets taught by violence prevention educators, especially on campuses. Along with the great news that many people are taking bystander intervention sessions, we must acknowledge the reality that when it is not taught carefully, bystander intervention tactics can ignore or even further entrench harmful and prejudicial norms. When we ask people to “do something” if they “see something” we must unpack who and what looks dangerous, and to whom. This session is for anyone who is teaching or has taken any form of bystander intervention education, as well as anyone looking for inclusive, anti-oppressive ways to be a concerned neighbor and friend.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RISK ASSESSMENT & SAFETY PLANNING
October 29th | 1:00- 2:30 pm | REGISTER HERE
Presented by Jen Shtab & Ashley Baker at The Spring
Through scenario-based learning, participants will discover how to evaluate high-risk domestic violence situations, as well as identify ways to reduce these risks through safety planning. This training emphasizes the importance of collaboration for effective risk assessment and to ensure appropriate identification, monitoring and supports are in place. Participants are encouraged to attend an introduction to domestic violence training prior to taking this training. CLE Credits are available for attending this training.
