Training

The SASS Primary Prevention team offers a range of training programs and workshops, for children, adolescents, and adults. Programs and workshops can be delivered in schools, colleges, work places or other settings anywhere in Tasmania.  Content and duration of each session is tailored to meet the identified needs of the audience.

Quote from year 11 student "As a sexual assault survivor I thought it was all really spot on and I felt very comfortable throughout the talk."

Our specialised professional development workshops empower participants with the skills they need to minimise harm and assist others in trauma recovery. These fee-for-service workshops can be delivered on-site at any location across Tasmania. Online or inter-state workshops may be available upon request.

We also offer ticketed training events that are open to the public.  Such events are advertised below and emailed to our newsletter subscribers.  If you would like to be informed of upcoming events, subscribe to our newsletter or contact the SASS training team.

 

SASS training events are engaging, dynamic, and interactive. Our educators are tertiary qualified with extensive experience working across a broad range of disciplines including trauma-informed care and practice and working with survivors of sexual assault.  SASS is a unique training provider, with sessions delivered in Tasmania supported via our counselling service if participants require support.

 

All training projects can be specifically designed and tailored to the audience.  Below are a selection of workshop outlines that can be combined and/or developed to suit targeted needs.

In late 2018 the SASS Training Unit was awarded with a National Crime Prevention Award.
