DERC 2023—Supporting Survivors

This past Tuesday was TCNJ’s annual Day to End Rape Culture (DERC), a day dedicated to sexual assault awareness and prevention. The Reactivity Lab hosted a table on supporting survivors of sexual assault focusing on positive social reactions to sexual assault disclosure. We had 130 visitors, many of whom shared their own ideas of a positive reaction to SA disclosure. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!

Congrats to Jess & Berny for getting their posters accepted for presentation at ABCT! ★★
