What does it cover?

This workshop focuses on providing participants with the knowledge and skills to respond appropriately to disclosures of sexual violence.

Sexual abuse is difficult to talk about, and difficult to hear about. People in our communities may be asking for help for the first time ever when they tell us about harm and abuse. ‘Dealing with Disclosures’ is a workshop that can help you develop the skills and confidence to respond appropriately when someone discloses that they have experienced sexual violence, that they have sexually assaulted someone or that they are concerned about someone. This workshop will cover the kinds of situations that your staff might be in when receiving disclosures of people’s experience of harm and disclosures of concerning behaviour. The workshop will model safe language and strategies for managing these experiences and discuss methods of referral, self-care and safety.
