Counseling 399: Relationships, Sexuality, and Violence Prevention
Join a growing and important conversation about a number of issues relevant to students on UND's campus. This course offers students the opportunity to learn, share, and grow together.
Facilitated by graduate students and faculty of the Department of Counseling Psychology, the 12-hour class takes place over the course of a weekend, or one night a week for a month, and covers a wide range of related topics, including…
We will share what we know, and ask that, when comfortable, you share your experiences as well. Together, we will view documentaries and other media on these topics, brainstorm ways to improve our lived experience as women and men who are impacted by sexual violence, and practice some techniques to assert the wants and needs we may discover along the way.
If interested or any questions, please contact:
Please don’t wait to get in touch! There is limited space per section, and we want to hear from you. Your voice matters.
Who can participate?
Anyone over the age of 18 is welcome to participate, UND student or not. As of now, there are separate sections for women and men because, although we are more similar than we are dissimilar, we want to create safe places for students of different genders to talk and learn about issues specific to their experience. A gender-inclusive class is also offered, please email at above address if interested.
How long will it take?
What's in it for me?
Interested students will attend either a weekend or weeknight class, each lasting from approximately 11 AM to 5:30 PM on a consecutive Saturday and Sunday OR each night for four weeks from 4:30 - 7:30 PM each time. You will also be asked to respond to some surveys in person or by email before and after the class, and to give feedback on what you liked or disliked.
One course credit, if desired. In addition, your participation will lead to a better understanding of how these types of programs can improve students' lives and well-being. But most of all, we hope you will enjoy new knowledge, self-understanding, and awareness of healthy relationship behaviors - while feeling more empowered to communicate your needs and build better connections with others!
