Escalation is a 90-minute workshop which begins with a film and is followed by a student-lead discussion that helps students understand the warning signs of abuse, while also promoting healthy relationships. It’s easier than you think to organize an Escalation workshop. Below is a step-by-step guide.
Participants! Think of a club, athletic team, Greek organization, class, or a group of friends who you want to talk about this with.
A date, time, and room. Pick a date, time, and room to host your Escalation workshop. Pro tip: Make sure you book a room well in advance that will accommodate all of your participants.
Facilitator training. If you're not already a trained facilitator, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get access to our virtual training calendar!
Access to Escalation. Make sure you have either the link to Escalation or an Escalation DVD handy that you received after training. If you don't have either it's probably because you haven't been trained yet. Get trained by emailing email@example.com and picking a day on our virtual calendar.
Computer. To play Escalation, you’ll need a computer. If you are playing via live link make sure your location has access to working wifi.
Optional: Facilitators! You’ll need a facilitator for every 15-35 attendees.
Talk to One Love! We are here to chat, support, train, and possibly participate! Reach out to us.
Pick a date and room. Pick a day and time to run your Escalation workshop.
Get Trained. The workshop is led by you and your friends, so make sure everyone is trained. We offer 1-hour virtual training online each week. Contact us for dates and times.
Promote your event. If it’s an open event for anyone on your campus, make sure you adequately promote your event using flyers, posters, or even a Facebook event.
Day of - Prep the Room. 30 minutes or so before the event, try to prep the room. Sometimes there can be technical difficulties that take a bit to resolve.
