Workshops to offer education in sexual assault resistance

Female students in their first year of studying business, law or nursing can learn skills to help resist sexual assault in three campus workshops in February.

The Enhanced Assess, Acknowledge, Act (EAAA) program is conducted in a 12-hour workshop format and includes group discussions and activities, video clips and a three-hour introduction to physical self-defence.

“Women who have taken the program in the past found it fun, interesting and a good opportunity to meet other women,” says organizer Katie Behan, social justice career co-ordinator in the Faculty of Law.

The workshop is offered:

  • Saturday and Sunday, February 4 and 5, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.;
  • Saturday and Sunday, February 11 and 12, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; or
  • Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. February 1, 8, 15, and March 1.

Registration is free and includes lunch for the weekend sessions and snacks for Wednesday evening sessions. To sign up, e-mail Behan at or phone 519-253-3000, ext. 2928.
