Training for Professionals
We run specialist training workshops for professionals around the issues of working with women who are survivors of sexual violence.
These are one or two day, multi-disciplinary workshops specifically designed for people who want to increase their confidence in dealing with specific issues and find ways of supporting survivors effectively and sensitively.
