Description: 

With a focus on crisis intervention rather than long-term counseling, this 2-day training will deepen your understanding of sexual assault and the major roles of an advocate/counselor. This training is designed primarily for sexual assault advocates/counselors who are volunteers or staff at rape crisis centers. Others who may benefit include nurses, physicians, law enforcement officers, and professional counselors who do not have specific sexual assault training. Through case studies, role-playing, and other interactive exercises, you will build the basic skills necessary to provide competent, effective crisis intervention services to sexual assault victims/survivors effectively and sensitively. Specifically, you will:

  • Define your role in relation to others working as part of a sexual assault response team.
  • Learn how to respond to a crisis call reporting recent sexual assault.
  • Develop a "toolkit" of crisis intervention techniques to support recovery from sexual assault.
  • Formulate a personalized self-care plan to prevent burnout.

Cultural competence is an asset in any professional pursuit, and it is a core requirement in the field of victim assistance because crime can happen to anyone in any neighborhood. This interactive, 2-day training addresses cultural barriers such as stereotyping, value differences, communication styles, and language and interpreter bias, and how they impede effective service delivery to victims of crime from diverse populations.

  •  Recognize and overcome a variety of cultural barriers to effective service delivery.
