HSGP member James Avery Fuchs explores the applications of consent both in everyday life and sexual situations. There will be a thorough explanation of consent, discussion of effective communication around consent and boundaries and how to tell if a relationship of any kind is unhealthy, and real-life scenario examples where participants can practice the lessons learned earlier in the lecture.
