Sexual Violence Awareness:
This one day course is aimed at professionals who wish to gain information and practical skills when assisting those who have disclosed rape and/or sexual abuse in adulthood. The course recognises sexual abuse experienced by children and young people but the main learning objectives for this course predominantly address adult experiences. The course covers prevalence of sexual violence in the present day, legal and criminal responses, and a broad based understanding of myths and attitudes around societal understanding of sexual violence. The course also covers the effects, both physical and psychological, on victims and survivors of rape and sexual assault. There will also be an opportunity to discuss best practice when the professional receives first disclosure from the victim.
This course is £750 for up to 12 attendees.
