This three-day training will better prepare community-based
anti-violence workers to take a trauma-informed approach to
supporting survivors of recent sexual assault. It includes up-
to-date information on the prevalence and dynamics of
sexual assault, what we now know about the perpetrators of
sexual assault, the impact of sexual assault on survivors,
working with survivors from diverse communities, the
importance of a coordinated response to sexual assault, and
the impact of vicarious trauma on front-line support workers.
The focus will be on building skills and providing tools and
best practices to support and advocate for survivors
recovering from trauma and proceeding through the medical
and legal systems.
This training was made possible with Civil Forfeiture funding from the Ministry of
Public Safety and Solicitor General.
