Train the Trainer

As anyone who works in the sexual assault field can tell you, there are certain issues that seem to come up in every training or educational workshop, no matter who the audience is. For example, every time you provide information about sexual assault, you can virtually guarantee you will have to answer questions about victim-suspect relationships, common victim reactions, false reporting, and the role of alcohol and drugs. This intensive 2-day program will help prepare you to respond effectively.

Don't miss this valuable opportunity to build your skills and help your community!
