This presentation will explore the topic of sexual and interpersonal violence as it impacts the Mason community, including faculty and staff. We will explore how the current socio-political climate (with events like the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Justice Kavanaugh and movements like #MeToo), impact our community as a whole. These issues impact faculty and staff too, and by modeling a community of resilience, well-being and post-traumatic growth we all be more supportive to all survivors in the Mason community.  This presentation will give participants the chance to explore more about resources available on campus and nationally, the impact of trauma, and how intersecting identities are impacted by interpersonal violence and trauma. Participants will be given reasonable action steps to help create solutions to these such as creating a culture of consent, knowing resources, and fostering resilience and healing in the community.  We will end with a gentle self-care exercise.
