Trauma-Informed Care

Due to the pervasiveness of sexual violence, health professionals and practitioners are very likely to be working unknowingly, with victims and survivors. This training examines the effects of trauma and the ways we can restore dignity and safety for those seeking services and care while respecting the many cultures and identities of the people served.

Understanding Systems of Oppression

One of our philosophies and guiding principles is that we understand sexual violence won’t end until all forms of oppression end. This training looks at the intersections of sexual violence and oppression. Participants are asked to examine their own privileges in order to recognize the barriers oppressed groups experience each and every day and challenge the social norms that normalize violence and make it acceptable.

Sexual Violence for the 21st Century

Sexual violence prevention and education has evolved to keep up with our fast paced contemporary lifestyles.
