Sexual Trauma 1st Aid Expanded

6-hour workshopAlthough it was confronting, this was probably the most valuable training I have ever taken part in. Five stars. (participant testimonial from Sexual Trauma 1st Aid workshop)

This NEW  6-hour workshop helps to raise understanding of sexual assault in our community, and offers vital skills for handling disclosures of sexual harm. The workshop will focus on empowering anyone, with practical skills and evidence-based knowledge, to respond to a disclosure in a trauma-informed ‘best-practice’ manner. The workshop includes all the content from the 4-hour Sexual Trauma 1st Aid workshop, plus additional information including: pornography and sexual media, warning signs for domestic and family violence and abuse, bystander behaviour, grooming, and how to respond to sharing of explicit material.  All skill levels welcome, and no prior knowledge is expected.
