    Becoming Trauma-informed: Trauma-informed Practices and How They can be Implemented in Relation to the Pre-conception, Prenatal, and Postnatal Period

    Report, 2022


    Trauma involves an experience or experiences that are physically or emotionally harmful and result in long-term negative effects on functioning and well-being. Many people experience trauma during their lifetime. Having experienced trauma may play a role in sexual risk behaviours, unplanned pregnancies, substance misuse and dependence, and negative impacts on pregnancy, parenting, and children. Given the prevalence and impact of trauma during the perinatal period, it is recommended that services and interventions have a trauma-informed approach. This review examines recent literature on the impacts of trauma, and a trauma-informed approach to working with families, particularly in the pre-conception, prenatal, and postnatal period.

  • The Bystander Moment – Transforming Rape Culture at its Roots

    Video, 2018


    The Bystander Moment, featuring leading anti-violence educator and author Jackson Katz, explores the role played by bystanders – especially friends, teammates, classmates, and co-workers-in perpetuating sexual harassment, sexual assault, and other forms of gender violence. In riveting analysis illustrated with archival footage and clips from news, sports, and entertainment media, Katz gives special attention to peer culture dynamics – especially male peer culture dynamics across race and ethnicity – that help to normalize sexism and misogyny while silencing other men in the face of abuse. The Bystander Moment also stresses the crucial importance of appealing to people not as potential perpetrators or passive spectators, but as active bystanders and potential leaders who have a positive role to play in challenging and changing the sexist cultural norms that too often lead to gender violence. The result is an indispensable educational tool in the ongoing struggle to prevent sexism and misogyny and promote gender equality. A study guide is available at http://bystandermoment.org/pdfs/bystander-moment-study-guide.pdf.
