The training workshops have been developed by sexual harm prevention specialist Rachel Harrison in conjunction with SoundCheck Aotearoa, based on a model used in the screen sector.  Each training workshop is a full day interactive session, starting at 9am and finishing at 5pm.  The training workshops focus on the prevention of and response to sexual harm and cover definitions, legal requirements, supporting survivors, options for reporting and tips for prevention and bystander intervention.
