Sexual Violence: Positive Prevention and Response
With increasing demand to provide effective prevention education and consistent responses to disclosures, Epigeum have developed a suite of interactive online courses for students and staff, to support higher education institutions in promoting positive change.
Consent Matters: Boundaries, Respect and Positive Intervention
Consent Matters is a fully interactive and evidence-based online course covering the areas of sexual consent, communication and relationships, and bystander intervention.
This innovative course explores the nature of sexual consent. It shows students how to seek consent, how to recognise it and how to identify situations where it can’t be given. Using activities, quizzes and relatable character scenarios, it teaches students the importance of good communication, clear boundaries and mutual respect. Within the context of social norm and bystander intervention theory, students will learn how to recognise difficult situations and possible ways of stepping in if others need help.

Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Violence
Anyone within a higher education institution could receive a disclosure of sexual violence. An appropriate response is important to minimise the impact on the individuals involved, the student community and the institution.
Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Violence is an online course which will ensure all university staff and student leaders provide a consistent response across an institution. Developed in collaboration with an international range of higher education experts and professional practitioners, this course provides uniquely high-quality, interactive and comprehensive training on the first response to disclosures. The course empowers staff and student leaders across a wide range of roles and departments to manage this sensitive and complex issue, providing them with the skills to respond appropriately, empathetically and confidently.
