ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Catharsis Productions held sexual harassment training with the Anniston Munitions Center workforce at the DeSoto Pastime Center March 14 and 15.

The group, which teaches through interactive, thought-provoking dialogue with the audience, gave the workforce a new way of viewing sexual harassment and assault.

"Doing the same training over and over, you don't get the same impact," said Lt. Col. Shayne Moore, ANMC's commander. "Bringing in an outside organization makes the training fresh for employees."

The group pointed out numerous ways employees might create a ripe environment for sexual harassment or assault, simply by ignoring behaviors and allowing degrading terms to be spoken in the workplace.

Though all employees don't engage in the process, everyone has the capability to change the problem, said Anthony Dinicola, one of the educators from Catharsis.
