Working with adult survivors of sexual assault
This workshop is designed for those working with adults who have experienced recent or past sexual assault.
Many adults who were sexually assaulted in their childhood never tell anyone and when they first disclose it is often to a healthcare professional.
Women sexually assaulted by a partner are statistically the least likely to report it to police.
It is estimated of the 1 in 6 men who’ve been sexually assaulted most have never told anyone.
This interactive workshop examines the long-term impact of the trauma of sexual assault. Strategies are explored for working therapeutically with issues such as guilt and self-blame, hyper arousal, flashbacks, guilt and self blame.
Prior completion of Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Assault: Introduction, or an equivalent, is required for participation in this workshop.
