First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

The Sexual Violence Support & Education Team is offering First Reponder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training on campus, with dates scheduled during both the fall and spring semesters.

This training is intended to build the capacity of professionals, paraprofessionals and community members to assess and respond effectively to disclosures of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Survivors who receive safe and supportive responses to disclosures of sexual violence are more likely to reach out for help from medical and counselling services and/ or report to police. First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ is a comprehensive two day training, inclusive of the full continuum of sexual violence and across the lifespan.
