Training for sexual violence support workers
THE MENTAL HEALTH CONSEQUENCES OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE: THE SOCIAL / TRAUMA MODEL
The aim of the course is to explore a model linking experiences of violence and abuse with mental distress and draw implications for practice.
The course is aimed at practitioners delivering services to people who are, or may be, experiencing mental distress as a result of experiences of sexual violence, trauma and abuse.
Participants will learn about the connections between childhood sexual abuse and later mental health distress. The course will look into the impact these connections have on service delivery and develop tools for participants’ practical application.
