Class Summary - Today we discussed consent. We talked about how in order to get consent regarding intimacy and sexual contact it is important to be Affirmative (saying yes - the absence of no is not affirmative), Unambiguous (clear cut, unmistakable, and definite) and Conscious (comprehensible, informed, understood, not impaired by drugs or alcohol. We watched a video clip comparing consent to tea and talked about the analogy. Then, students listened to some scenarios and decided if consent was present or not, and why or why not. We talked about verbal and nonverbal communication. Then, we discussed "I" statements to better communicate our boundaries and wants. Students looked at an example and then rewrote situations to make them less confrontational and more effective. Today students were to demonstrate effective communication and decision making skills by creating a comic. One comic shows an unclear no, not getting consent, and results of not following values. One comic shows clear assertive refusal, communicating values, and suggesting an alternative.
