Violence Prevention Education

PARC's team of Violence Prevention Educators and professional staff work together to engage the campus community in a variety of conversations to help prevent violence and create a culture of safe intervention.

 PARC takes a community-based approach to violence prevention, meaning that most of our trainings focus on the roles each of us can play in creating safer communities. This approach centers the role of bystanders in intervening in potentially harmful situations; for bystander intervention to be most successful, we ground our trainings in an understanding of oppression and violence.

PARC is always excited to collaborate with you to create a custom training for your needs, including highlighting relevant topics and tailoring scenarios! Many of our training discuss difficult topics. Please feel free to reach out at any time to ask questions about what training might be best for your group or seek support regarding the content of the training. Our trainings range from 60-75 minutes.
