Confronting Sexual Harassment.
Thameling, Carl L.
An instructor uses a class activity to increase student understanding of the implications of sexual harassment in interpersonal relationships. Students read a dialogue inspired by a newspaper report about the disciplinary action against five senior government officials at the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center who had participated in repeated acts of sexual harassment. After hearing a lecture on dysfunctional relationships and interpersonal communication, students form small groups and work on identifying behaviors that could be described as sexual in nature, unreasonable, severe or pervasive, and unwelcome and offensive. Student reaction to this learning activity is highly positive. Course evaluations and unsolicited comments suggest both male and female students appear to derive a greater understanding of and appreciation for others from the designed sexual harassment exercise.
