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.

The training workshops we offer are listed on the right hand side of this page.

Currently RCTN have no Training Calendar for this current year. But if you wish to express an interest please contact us.

We also offer talks to raise awareness of sexual violence and our services, and bespoke in-house training can be arranged. Contact us for details.
