The goal of this presentation is to provide foundational information to help employees focus on and fully grasp the different types of sexual harassment in the workforce. Attendees will be able to identify the impact of sexual harassment, know how to report an incident, and understand their protections under the law. This presentation is interactive and immediately applicable, testing your knowledge along with the way with different case scenario examples. This training is developed for behavioral health professionals who are required to meet licensure and re-licensure requirements for continuing education hours in sexual harassment skills.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • What is considered sexual harassment?
  • How do I respond when I witness or experience sexual harassment?
  • How do I report sexual harassment?
