Conversations on Consent

What is consent?  How do you define consent?  Do you pay attention to verbal and non-verbal cues from others?  How do you give consent in different situations?

The VIP Center invites you to talk about these questions, watch some video clips and discuss ways to communicate about consent.  This program is great for all audiences, as the issue of consent covers many everyday situations.  How do you know your friend wants a hug?  How do you effectively tell a friend that you don't want to dance, even as they pull you out onto the dance floor?  How do you let your date know it's ok to hold your hand? (approximately 1 hour in length)
