New collection of online courses covers trauma, dating violence, and human trafficking
Vector Solutions, the leading provider of training and software solutions to help schools make their operations and communities safer, smarter, and better, has created a new set of online courses for students focusing on important safety topics such as trauma awareness, dating violence, human trafficking, and more. The courses are the latest addition to Vector’s award-winning library of Student Safety & Wellness Courses.
The short online video lessons help schools teach and promote discussions about important safety, wellness, and social and emotional learning topics that have a big impact on individual students and the school community. The new collection of courses includes:
- Active Assailant Preparedness
- Dating Violence Awareness
- Human Trafficking Awareness
- Sexual Abuse Awareness
- Trauma Awareness
Each course is broken into short, age-appropriate modules for grades 9-12 and grades 6-8. The courses will be available for schools to implement at the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
“Our Student Safety & Wellness Courses help schools prepare students for pressing safety issues that are unfortunate realities in today’s society,” said Vector Solutions Head of Product for Education Rob Buelow. “We’ve expanded our course library to help students with additional topics they are reading about or, tragically, experiencing. Our goal is to better protect students nationwide, and to ultimately prevent these types of incidents from ever happening in our school communities.”
Vector Solutions prior collections of Student Safety & Wellness Courses include titles such as Bullying & Cyberbullying, Youth Suicide Awareness, Alcohol, Vaping & Drug Prevention, Sexual Harassment, Digital Citizenship, Stress & Anxiety, Depression, Healthy Relationships, and more. Authored by subject-matter experts, the Student Safety & Wellness Courses are presented by diverse young people to help engage students with the content. Teachers can assign the courses to students to complete independently, or use them in a facilitated group setting such as homeroom or during advisory periods. The courses can also be used for remediation. Each module includes lesson plans, assessments, discussion questions, and activities to help facilitate talks with students, and an administration portal where teachers can keep track of students’ progress.
