Conduct Awareness Program

The SHARE Center’s Conduct Awareness (CA) Program is an active psychoeducation program that aims to provide educational information and opportunities for self-reflection in order to promote participants’ understanding and empathy related to sexual behavior, including an examination of broader relationship patterns and dynamics.

The program is facilitated by Freda Grant, SHARE’s Coordinator of Conduct Awareness Training and Prevention Education who will meet with participants individually. Typically, this will consist of weekly, 1-hour sessions, usually taking place over a period of 7 weeks.

Participants may be “self-referred” (i.e. voluntarily present for services on their own accord, possibly at the suggestion of a peer, staff member, etc.) or required to complete training after being found responsible for a violation of Yale’s sexual misconduct policy by the University Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC).

The program will be adapted based on the type of referral as well as the needs of the individual and typically involves the following sessions:

  • Session 1: Introductory Session: Rapport Building and Engagement
  • Session 2: Reviewing Yale Policies and Identifying Types of Harm
  • Session 3: Boundaries: Exploring Consent and Healthy Relationships
  • Session 4: Impacts of Harm
  • Session 5: Accountability
  • Session 6: Safety Planning for the Future
  • Session 7: Moving Forward

The order, number and/or focus of sessions may change, particularly if the participant is self-referred.
