Tailored topics may include:

  • Sexual Violence (Rape and Sexual Assault) Prevention and Intervention
  • Bystander Intervention

Sexual Harassment 

Creating respectful climates and developing skills and policies to reduce and prevent sexual harassment is essential to creating work, school and home environments that are productive, progressive and positive.  Marty delivers programming that is both serious and lighthearted (and hopefully funny) while addressing social and cultural change, gradation, unintentional vs intentional harm, and overt vs covert harassment, which is tailored to your populations demographics.

  • Workplace Harassment and Sexual Harassment
  • School Bullying/Harassment
  • Cyber/Electronic Harassment and Bullying

Health & Wellness

Health and wellness are integral to protecting, developing, and maintaining happy, healthy, and safe lives and communities. Barriers, protective factors, and healthy lifestyles are examined with a positive and non-judgmental approach. Marty skips the basic and boring approach to health and wellness and introduces participants to the challenges with spotting false claims, half truths, and outright lies within the health and wellness industrial complex. Working together groups explore practical approaches to designing reasonable, attainable, and effective individual, interpersonal, community, and societal approaches to effective health behavior change. Tailored topics may include: 

  • General Health and Wellness
  • Healthy Alcohol Use & Abuse Prevention 
  • Stress Management

Marty uses humor, demystification, and de-stigmatization to approach healthy, age appropriate, sex-positive information, and he provides participants resources to develop and sustain long-term healthy sexual relationships and behaviors for themselves and their partner(s). Tailored topics may include: 

  • Healthy Sexuality and Relationships
  • Pornography & Healthy Sexuality
