Drunk Sex or Date Rape: Can You Tell The Difference?
Some students on our campuses today engage in a hook-up culture of random sexual encounters with other students, usually fueled by alcohol. But, just because some students are getting drunk and hooking-up doesn’t make it right, or legal. When does a hook-up cross the line? Students don’t really know, and they’ve heard confusing messages. This program teaches students about incapacity and blackouts, and dispels common myths about alcohol and sex.
A Conversation About Consent
This is an advanced program on sexual communication. It is an interactive program, and Brett can facilitate it in large groups, or better, in a series of smaller workshops. Men and women make enormous assumptions about consent, and often don’t get how it really works. This program challenges participants to work together to define and understand consent, to go beyond “No means No.”
10 Things Every Student Should Know About Drinking
“Ten Things” is not about having a dry campus or telling students not to drink. It will reinforce those students who choose not to drink, or to drink moderately. But, many of our students are going to drink no matter what we do—so let’s get them drinking smarter and drinking more safely.
What You Don’t Know About Hazing Can Kill You
This one hour, interactive program for Greeks, Athletes, Bands, ROTC, etc. encourages audience members to propose alternative events and practices that allow for group engagement without hazing. This program identifies what constitutes hazing, and talks about the history of hazing practices within college organizations. It gives students ideas for how to transform their initiations, pledging, joining, rushing, and membership activities into meaningful associational activities, positive traditions, and group-building rituals.
What If The Plane Blew Up? A Program About Empowering Bystander Intervention
Audience members will learn that when they see something amiss, often others do as well. If you act first, as a leader, you will find that others will help. But, if you do not lead, no one may follow. This one-hour program is aimed primarily at all-male audiences, but it can be offered to all-female audiences, or audiences of mixed genders. There are many ways in which bystander intervention will make a difference on a college campus, and What if the Plane Blew Up? can be focused on specific issues, depending on your needs. High-risk Drinking. Hazing. Sexual Assault. Prejudice. Or, it can be directed at multiple topics in which intervention can make all the difference between a crime and safety. Between life and death. Between right and wrong.
In addition to our student programs, The NCHERM Group offers a variety of risk management workshops which can accompany any student program.
