Virtual Sexual Violence Core Advocacy
November 14, 2022 - November 18, 2022
ACESDV’s Sexual Violence Core Advocacy Training is a five-day, 40-hour comprehensive sexual violence advocacy training. This core training examines the dynamics and sociocultural context of sexual violence, healthy sexuality, and the facets of sexual assault response statewide. Participants will learn the foundations of sexual assault advocacy, including tone, rapport building, and crisis intervention, as well as mandatory reporting and privileged communication. This training also covers advanced advocacy strategies rooted in the neurobiology of trauma and considering the complex needs and intersectional identities of survivors. This upcoming SVCAT will take place virtually from Monday, November 14th – Friday, November 18th from 8:00am – 4:30pm on Monday, and 8:30am-4:30pm Tuesday-Friday.
The content and discussion in this training will necessarily engage with racism, sexism, ableism, oppression, privilege, homophobia, transphobia, colonialism, white supremacy, and interpersonal and structural violence. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will do our best to make this training a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with complex content. Attendees are encouraged to take charge of their health and learning.
