Building Trauma-Informed Pedagogy for Consent Education to Help End Gender-Based Violence
In recent years, there has been a proliferation of educational programming that centers the topic of sexual consent in order to address the epidemic of gender-based violence. However, these initiatives rely on a reductive, binary model of consent (“Yes!”/”No!”) that lacks an understanding of the psychosocial impacts of trauma and the particular struggles and access needs of some of the students most vulnerable to sexual re-victimization—trauma survivors. Drawing from research with diverse youth who self-identify as survivors of trauma, this talk will offer theoretical discussion and practical tools for shifting contemporary consent education to incorporate much-needed trauma-informed pedagogical approaches.
