Prevention Education at UNH

SHARPP’s prevention education trainings are informed by the CDC’s recommendations on sexual violence prevention and research-based best practices. The goals of these programs are to build skills, increase knowledge, and ultimately change attitudes and beliefs that influence the behaviors of participants. We deliver these programs to residential halls, academic classrooms, Fraternity & Sorority chapters, student organizations, department meetings, campus recreation teams, athletic teams, etc. Prevention education trainings need about two weeks’ notice and can be customized for individual audiences.

Don’t see what you need or want from our provided list of potential programs? No worries, you can ask for a custom designed training to meet your individualized needs. Just click the, Design Your Own option, tell us a little about what you're looking for and then a SHARPP staff member will connect with you to finalize details.

It is also recommended to pair our programming in your hall or chapter house with our bulletin board messaging and marketing materials (see below). Many of our programs have complementary visuals that you can use to reinforce our messaging. An excellent way to pair these would be to have a board be up the weeks leading into or after a training.

Please note: We typically request two weeks notice.

Our trainings and programs:

  • are delivered by SHARPP staff and/or student Community Educators
  • are research informed and utilize evidence-based curriculums
  • can include lecture, discussion, videos, interactive activities and/or experiential learning

Short Introduction Programs

SHARPP 101

Duration: 20 minutes

A brief overview of what SHARPP’s services are and how students, faculty, and staff can access SHARPP. Included in this brief presentation is an overview of sexual violence, relationship abuse and stalking and what these issues look like on the UNH campus. This program is a short introduction program that can be paired with other programs listed below.

Lobby programs to 45-minute long programs

Lobby programs are a unique way to engage with students in short 2 to 3-minute conversations within a residence hall. They are often set up in hall lobbies and conversations are had as people enter and exit the hall. These can include our prize wheel, info tabling, ice cream sundae consent bar, etc. Lobby programs work especially well when there is not an opportunity to have a longer more formal program.

“Put the Condom on Consent”

Duration: determined by requestor

 An interactive and fun lobby program that engages students as they come and go from their residence hall. Much like Pin the Tail on The Donkey, participants are blindfolded and asked to put a condom on a consent board. The goal is to educate particants about the importance of receiving verbal consent. Prizes are awarded.

The Traveling Clothesline Project

Duration: determined by requestor

The Traveling Clothesline Project at UNH

The Clothesline Project is a display of t-shirts made by survivors of sexual assault and relationship abuse set up in lobbies for students to view. Each t-shirt is anonymously made by former and current UNH community members who have chosen to share their story and spread awareness about the issues of interpersonal violence.

1BlueString

This is a program that can be a part of your next music event and duration is determined by the requestor.

1BlueString is a campaign that asks guitarists to replace 1 of their 6 strings with a blue string to symbolize the 1 in 6 men who have survived childhood sexual abuse. SHARPP invites you to assist in sharing the message by requesting 1BlueString to attend your open mic night or coffee house. 

Hooking Up with Confidence

Duration: 30-45 minutes *Not ideal for lobby programs*

This program highlights the importance of consent during hookups. Through work in small groups, participants will “design” a sexual encounter that includes consent and alcohol. Students will discuss how their self-designed scenario fits into UNH’s definition of consensual sex. This is a unique way to analyze hookup culture within college/university settings. This is a highly interactive program that is packed with laughter and exploration.

Prevention Trainings

SHARPP’s 60- and 90-minute trainings use the expertise of curriculums found throughout several evidence-based prevention programs. They are informed by CDC’s recommendations on sexual violence prevention and research-based best practices. The goals of these longer programs are to build skills, increase knowledge, and change attitudes and beliefs that influence the behaviors of participants. 

Wildcats Get Consent!

A Look at Consent and Sexual Violence AT UNH

Duration: 60 minutes

This is our starter program that allows audience members to discuss sex and consent. Students will examine the current landscape of the issues on UNH’s campus and what this means for themselves and the community. The program also addresses the relationship between alcohol and other drugs with sexual violence.

Healthy Relationships

A LOOK AT What consitutes Healthy & Unhealthy Relationships

Duration: 60 to 90 minutes

This interactive program includes a fair amount of small (and then large) group discussion around what healthy relationships include, and analyzes where we learned messages around what relationships are supposed to look like. This program utilizes discussion, videos, and lecture formats to highlight what healthy and unhealthy behaviors look like and how we can be active bystanders to our friends, peers, and loved ones.

None of Your Business?

A Look at Relationship Abuse & the Role of Bystanders

Duration: 60 to 90 minutes

What can one reasonably expect from a partner? Where is the line between love and abuse? What about the “gray areas?” This interactive program includes discussion and activities that explore the warning signs of abuse, dynamics of abusive relationships, strategies for intervention and safety planning. Participants will examine ways to support a friend or loved one who is experiecing abuse.

The Escalation Workshop

Duration: 90 minutes

The Escalation Workshop is a film-based discussion created by the One Love Foundation that opens people’s eyes to the warning signs of relationship abuse. The workshop consists of a film, "Escalation," followed by a guided discussion led by a trained facilitator. After this workshop participants should have a more clear introduction to the complexity of relationship violence and some strategies to be a more effective bystander.

Target Audiences: Student Organizations, Fraternity and Sorority Chapters, Residential Halls, and Student-Athletes

YOU CAN HELP

YOU CAN HELP

Being an active bystander

Duration: 60 minutes

This program engages people about the importance of their role in helping to end interpersonal violence at UNH. YOU CAN HELP™ serves as our active bystander training program where we spend time analyzing why people do and don't act as active bystanders. This program empowers students to take what they have learned to make UNH a safer community.

Sexual Harassment: What Crosses the Line?

Duration: 60 minutes

This program uses scenarios and discussions to clarify the concept of sexual harassment. After talking about what sexual harassment means, discovering the difference between flirting vs. hurting, participants discuss appropriate professional, educational, and social boundaries.

Living in a Rape Culture

Duration: 60-90 minutes

This program defines “rape culture” and looks at the ways people have adapted to living in a “rape culture” and how popular media and culture reinforce behaviors. Activities enable participants to examine what rape culture is, and how this context affects the daily lives of people differently. This program will use exercises and visuals to facilitate discussion about rape culture.

Street Harassment: What’s the Big Deal Anyway?

Duration: 60 minutes

Street Harassment is... “unwanted comments, gestures, and actions forced on a stranger in a public place without their consent and is directed at them because of their actual or perceived sex, gender, gender expression, or sexual orientation.” [source: stop street harassment] In this program we will look at street harassment and its impact and role within rape culture. With the use of videos, students will examine the harmful effects of street harassment in public places.

Requesting a Series of Trainings:

Want to impact your audience even more? Request a series of trainings. Trainings can be used as building blocks to enact larger learning impacts with your participants. You can spread trainings over a semester or an academic year. Trainings can occur back-to-back or have several weeks in-between. Whatever the timeframe, SHARPP can provide multi-session programs. Research proves that the best way for messages to be heard and behaviors to be affected are providing multi-session trainings to the same audience. Below are some examples of multi-session programs for you to think about:

1. SHARPP 101 > Wildcats Get Consent > None of Your Business > YOU CAN HELP

2. Wildcats Get Consent  >  Healthy Relationships YOU CAN HELP

3. Wildcats Get Consent > Living in a Rape Culture

4. None of Your Business?: A look at Relationship Abuse > YOU CAN HELP

5. Wildcats Get Consent > Healthy Relationships

6. SHARPP 101 > Sexual Harassment

Please reach out to SHARPP outreach and education staff to talk about the many ways we can tailor trainings for your audience.
