Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs (WCSAP)
The goals of our conference are to unite agencies and individuals working to end sexual violence, to provide educational opportunities to deepen our understanding of sexual violence, and to facilitate social change.The theme of this year’s conference is Celebrating Resilience.As advocates and preventionists working to end sexual violence, we have needed to be resilient. While this need has made us stronger, it does not always feel like a gift. This year we want to acknowledge the value of resilience within ourselves, to celebrate this amazing ability, and to cultivate a community of care. It is the resilience in our lives, our communities, and our movement that inspires each of us to work for what seems impossible at times: the end of oppression and violence. This conference is a chance to connect to our co-workers, allies, and supporters, and to renew our energy, focus, and creativity. There is more work to do and we need to recharge in order to take on this challenge.For more information, visit their website.

Workshop Description: This workshop will define vicarious trauma and distinguish it from ideas of a job's "normal wear and tear." This training provides participants the opportunity to reflect on their current work experiences and learn preventative strategies for dealing with vicarious trauma. When considering environmental factors, levels of communication within organizations and personal methods of dealing with vicarious trauma, we can paint a better picture of creating healthy support and strategies for maintaining emotional well-being. This training is available to mental health professionals.
