A Trauma-Informed Approach to Understanding Sexual Violence for Advocates
This programme will equip you with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding to enable you to provide advocacy support for victims-survivors of sexual violence. The training will develop your ability to confidently handle disclosures appropriately and safely, learn where to sign-post victims-survivors for on-going support and to understand the process once a victim-survivor reports to the Police. The sessions are delivered with an emphasis based on a trauma-informed and person-centred approach to service delivery, one that puts victims-survivors interests at the heart of everything you do.
The programme consists of four 1-day sessions delivered between the times of 09.30 and 16:30, with regular breaks throughout and an hour’s break for lunch at 13:00. We deliver this training online through Zoom. Upon successful completion of the programme, attendees will receive a copy of the presentation, further reading resources and a certificate.
The course consists of four sessions which will take place on the following dates:
- 10th October
- 24th October
- 7th November
- 21st November 2024
