Specialist Training Workshop

– Thursday, 14 March 2018 ~ 9.30 am-4 pm ~ Ashington

Working with Adult Survivors of Rape & Sexual Assault

The women that Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland work with say that what they find most helpful is understanding, acceptance, support and someone to listen to them in a non-judgmental environment. Many workers tell us that they want to provide this but often feel out of their depth or concerned that they may say the wrong thing when receiving a disclosure about sexual abuse.

This workshop aims to increase supporters’ confidence, awareness, knowledge and skills relating to rape and sexual assault and to explore the issues that may affect workers when receiving disclosures.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define rape and sexual assault
  • Understand the effects of rape and sexual assault on individuals
  • Understand societal effects of rape and sexual assault
  • Understand how society’s views of rape and sexual assault impact individuals
  • Understand the implications for individuals of disclosing rape and sexual assault
  • Identify how to deal with a disclosure relevant to your role
  • Understand practice issues and the importance of self-care when working with rape and sexual assault
