With a focus on crisis intervention rather than long-term counseling, this 2.5 day training will deepen your understanding of sexual assault and the major roles of an advocate/counselor. This training is designed primarily for sexual assault advocates/counselors who are volunteers or staff at rape crisis centers. Others who may benefit include nurses, physicians, law enforcement officers, and professional counselors who do not have specific sexual assault training. This updated training includes modules on campus sexual assault, male sexual assault, and neurobiology of trauma and assault. Through case studies, role-playing, and other interactive exercises, you will build the basic skills necessary to provide competent, effective crisis intervention services to sexual assault victims/survivors effectively and sensitively.
