An appropriate response to a person’s first disclosure of Sexual Assault is essential to their recovery from the trauma.
This is an introductory workshop, essential for professionals and students in health, education, legal, welfare and community sectors where someone may disclose they have been sexually assaulted. The interactive workshop examines the definition of sexual assault and how the myths, dynamics and the impact of the trauma contribute to the silencing of victim/survivors of all ages.
