Title IX Investigations

Both a basic and advanced curriculum for new and more seasoned campus investigators are offered. This 2.5 day training goes over a Title IX investigation from beginning to end, interviewing, report writing, and a case study for participants to practice their skills learned on elements from real cases. 

Responsible Employees

Offered both in-person as well as an online course for campus practitioners to understand what their reporting responsibilities are as both a responsible employee under Title IX as well as mandatory reporters under state law. Participants learn not only their requirements but also tips and skills to handle a disclosure.

Dynamics of Interpersonal Violence on Campus

The dynamics of sexual assault, harassment, dating violence, stalking, and physical violence on campus. Covering not only prevalence rates, but also barriers to reporting, campus culture toward student violence, and how institutions can best use behavior based language to reach students about services and option in reporting.

Perpetration on Campus

A look at sexual assault perpetrators, and the dynamics of power an control used to target and victimize their peers and intimate partners. A specific look at perpetration on campus, serial perpetration, one-time offenders, and recidivism rates on campus.   

Simultaneous Investigations with Law Enforcement

Because of increased Title IX reports, and increased reports to law enforcement, more and more cases tend to involve both systems. This training looks at where the two systems cross investigations, and what can be done to assure that schools meet their requirements under Title IX while doing their best to cooperate with law enforcement requests.

Neurobiology of Trauma

This training looks at trauma, not only acute, but also historical, cultural, and institutional trauma, to better understand how it impacts those who have experienced violence. This training also unveils how campus practitioners can mitigate the effects of trauma when working with students, and how institutional policy may play a role in re-traumatization.  

Bias and Equity within Title IX

Title IX requires equitable objective investigations and adjudication. This training takes a deeper look into what bias and equity mean, what it looks like on campus, and how we can apply these frameworks to the work we do on campus, to ensure better student services, and more objective fact finding during investigations. 

Investigating Consent

Many new and even seasoned investigators say that establishing and investigating consent is the most challenging part of a Title IX case. This training takes a look at consent, what consent means on campus, within our institutional policies and Title IX, and gives investigators and other campus practitioners better tools to investigate and establish consent.

Stalking on Campus

Instances of stalking are at an all time high, due to the increase in access through technology, and students' increased willingness to report it. This training will look at the dynamics of stalking, and what it looks like on campus, as well as whether our policies are equipped to adjudicate these cases, and whether our students understand them.

Transgender Students & Title IX

Recent interpretations of Title IX have left many schools confused as to how policies should reflect rights and services for students who identify as transgender. This training looks at Title IX as well as state law and recent OCR guidance to better understand best practice in serving transgender students, and what schools' roles are.

Athletics & Title IX

Title IX 101

A 101 overview of Title IX for those who need a refresher, or who are new to Title IX work.

This training gives participants everything they need to know to start work in this area confidently. 

Neurobiology of Trauma & Childhood Trauma

This training looks at trauma, not only acute, but also historical, cultural, and institutional trauma, to better understand how it impacts students who have experienced violence. This training also takes a look at recent studies showing how students often come to us with trauma, and how that is compacted when something happens at school.

Simultaneous Investigations with Law Enforcement

Because of increased Title IX reports, and increased reports to law enforcement, more and more cases tend to involve both systems. This training looks at where the two systems cross investigations, and what can be done to assure that schools meet their requirements under Title IX while doing their best to cooperate with law enforcement requests.

School Climate Surveys

Climate surveys are a necessary tool for schools to help identify risk and protective factors within the district, whether students know what violence looks like, whether students are experiencing violence, and more importantly, whether policies in place are doing what they set out to do.
