Combating Sexual Harassment:
Calling It Out and Calling for It to Stop
This course fulfills the state requirement for sexual harassment prevention training for licensure.
There are legal terms and laws addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. What about
when it's a client though? Visitors? A volunteer? Outside the building? Sexual harassment is
ubiquitous. It’s not addressed systemically. It’s underreported. It’s unobserved. It’s ignored.
How do we identify it? Prevent it? How do we maintain a safe environment for ourselves, our
colleagues, our clients? Whose job is it? Why won't it stop? How does it affect practice? Can we
provide care to someone who has violated our space? What if we don’t want to? The questions
keep coming when we explore workplace sexual harassment.
