What is the Escalation Workshop?
The Escalation Workshop is a film-based discussion 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.

What is the workshop format?
The film follows a college-aged couple through the very sweet beginnings of their relationship and shows how unhealthy behaviors can escalate into abuse.
After watching the film, workshop participants dive into a discussion about the film—led by trained facilitators—discussing the early warning signs of relationship abuse and what they can do if they witness or experience these warning signs. The conversation is led by a facilitator that has been trained by One Love.
How do I bring Escalation to my school
Organize a workshop with your school or community group.
First step is laying some of the groundwork before hosting your first workshop. Secure a date, space, and group. You should also do some research on local advocacy groups in your area and make up a resource list.
Participate in One Love’s Virtual Facilitator Training.
Our facilitator trainings are interactive sessions with a One Love staff member and other people like you who have an Escalation Workshop planned. You will review our materials including the Escalation Film and Discussion Manual and then connect with us to dive into training.
Start holding workshops!
Once you have been trained as a facilitator, you are ready to hold Escalation Workshops.
Bring the Escalation Workshop to Your School
We strongly recommend talking to a member of our team to learn the best ways to bring Escalation to your school or community. On this intro call, webinar or email exchange we will provide you with resources, guides and case studies from other schools and communities to help you plan out your very own workshop.
