Description: 

The purpose of this training is to provide nurses with knowledge to better care for the pediatric population affected by sexual assault. The training provides interview techniques and information to help the nurse recognize injury and evidence specific to pediatric sexual assault, as well as collect and preserve evidence. This training does not “certify” the nurse to perform pediatric sexual assault exams. Successful completion of the training indicates the nurse has attended the course. Although the course is intended for nurses who have already completed the SANE training for adolescents and adults, we recognize that there are nurses whose interest lies solely in caring for the pediatric population and welcome those nurses to attend the training.

Description: 

This weekend workshop is for non-offending adult male survivors of sexual child abuse, rape, physical violence, emotional abuse, abandonment and/or neglect. Our goal is to offer a safe, encouraging, powerful environment of shared healing. The weekend will provide opportunities to engage in a variety of healing activities, including sharing of stories, writing exercises, anger work and other emotional expression, small group discussion, shared creativity, relaxation and, yes, even fun.

This is our 19th annual male survivor weekend at Kirkridge. As in previous years, if there are sufficient numbers and interest, the workshop will include a special track for survivors of abuse by clergy.

This event is for men who are actively engaged in recovery work; it is not a substitute for therapy. A letter of recommendation from a therapist must accompany the
registration form/deposit. The registration deadline for this event is August 3rd, Space is limited, so try to register early to insure your place.

To register online: www.kirkridge.org

Led by Mike Lew, M.Ed., and Thom Harrigan, L.I.C.S.W., of The Next Step

from Incest and Other Sexual Child Abuse and Leaping Upon the Mountains: Men
