Give a Hoot: Owls Speak Up

Give a Hoot provides students with the resources, skills, and confidence to step in when they find themselves in a risky or challenging situation. Students will explore what types of actions are appropriate for more and less urgent situations and, importantly, ways that students can look out for one another. This program covers topics like mental health, body image, alcohol/drug use, sexual health and sexual assault. This program qualifies for STARS credit.

Give a Hoot is available upon request through our program request form and is offered at the Wellness Resource Center on select dates found on our OwlConnect page.

Alcohol 101: Drinking alcohol is common among college students, and this program is designed to help students explore why they choose to (or not to) drink. Through a series of games and activities, students will learn about ways to keep themselves and their fellow Owls safe when alcohol is in the mix!

Owl About Stress: This program empowers students to reframe how they think about stress by debunking stress myths, talking about resilience, and making a self-care plan for those really stressful times of the semester (talking to you midterms...). This is your go-to stress reduction program on campus!
Escalation: Escalation is a powerful, emotionally-engaging 90-minute film-based workshop, created by the One Love Foundation, that educates students about relationship violence and empowers students to work towards change.

This workshop brought to you in collaboration with the WRC and Temple's One Love Club

"Why do they do that?": Understanding problematic sexual behaviors

*For faculty and staff

There are a number of myths and misconceptions about individuals who choose to commit sexual violence and common risk factors for sexual violence.  These myths make it difficult for us to promote safety for all and support students and colleagues.  This workshop will offer participants an overview of available research and experiential expertise on sexual violence perpetration, including common behaviors, tactics, and motivations.  Folks will leave with a deeper understanding of some of the reasons why a person may choose to harm others, as well as ways professionals can create a safer campus community.
