UC Women s Center Offers Peer Educator Training
On Oct. 16, 17 and 23, 16 UC students had a full weekend workshop on the skills for becoming peer educators. Various trainers from the Rape Crisis and Abuse Center, UC Police Department, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners and Psychological Services Center trained the students on the issues surrounding sexual assault and how to prevent it.
As future peer educators, they also learned about body image issues and eating disorders. Dulce Perez of the UC Womens Center is the organizer and principal trainer.
