Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone training

University Counseling Services hosts a Safe Zone Training once every semester. Individual groups or departments may request separate trainings throughout the semester. The purpose of this training is to identify university/community members who will model support, acceptance and inclusion of LGBT individuals. Participants will gain knowledge of LGBT issues through an introduction to: common definitions; problematic and offensive terminology; and the qualities of a supportive ally. Interaction exercises and open dialogue will be used to provide participants with the information necessary to determine if they are able to identify themselves as "safe space" individuals who will provide support, information, and confidentiality to LGBT individuals.
