Supporting Survivors of Sexualized Violence Training

presented in partnership with the Saskatoon Sexual Assault and Information Centre, September 7, 2021 from 1-4pm (online)

Supporting Survivors of Sexualized Violence Training (SST) is a program created by SSAIC and designed to train professionals and community members alike to receive disclosures and support survivors in a compassionate and trauma-informed way.

Survivors of sexualized violence have experienced a trauma, and deserve to be treated with care and compassion. Survivors report that the way they are supported when they first disclose has a significant impact on their self-worth, resilience, and healing. With this training, we hope to equip as many people as possible with the tools to best communicate, understand, and guide them to their next steps to begin their healing.
