In the wake of the #Metoo Movement, sexual consent has become a topic in schools and communities across the country. YALSA, Young Adult Library Service Association, recently blogged about this very topic. This presentation will explore Jim Walter’s, Components of Trauma-Informed Care, and how school librarians have the unique opportunity to help create informed, empathetic citizens regarding consent within the safe space of the school library.
Participants will be able to define the concepts of consent using a variety of formats.
Participants will enhance their body of knowledge relating to the content of consent.
Participants will create a learning environment that supports the concepts of consent.
