Responding to First Disclosures: Online Training

March 18, 2022

People working directly with the general public may at some point be the person that a survivor of sexual assault first talks to about their abuse. Would you or members of your team know how to react / what to say / what not to say / what your legal duty is / where to signpost?

This course gives an overview of what to do when a person first discloses an incident or history of sexual abuse as well as practical advice about how to support an individual disclosing abuse.

Learning Objectives:

  • To develop a greater awareness of issues relating to sexual violence
  • To improve understanding of how trauma affects the brain
  • To increase confidence and ability in taking a first disclosure and offering advice to those who have experienced sexual violence

Who is this course for?

All frontline staff working with clients including: healthcare professionals, social workers, frontline workers including benefit, welfare and housing staff, youth workers, education staff, therapists, counsellors, legal and court staff, police officers, prison service, people working in the voluntary sector, strategic managers and decision makers.
