As technology becomes increasingly intertwined in our lives, it plays a central role in how our students meet, make, and maintain relationships. This not only presents challenges to their safety, privacy, and confidentiality; it also profoundly impacts the experience of survivors of intimate partner violence. This webinar will:

  • explore how abusers misuse technology to stalk, harass, and control survivors,
  • discuss practical strategies for safety planning,
  • empower survivors with insights on leveraging technology as a means of empowerment and connection,
  • address potential risks in the technology use of students, staff, and faculty.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Technology-Enabled Abuse Awareness: How perpetrators misuse technology in domestic violence, recognizing the evolving threats faced by survivors in the digital age.
  • Safety Planning: Identify and apply practical strategies to mitigate technology risks and address privacy concerns, ensuring a secure environment for survivors within the academic community.
  • Empowering Survivors and Fostering Connection: How to harness technology as a tool for empowerment and connection, fostering confidence and autonomy in their academic and personal lives.
