Sexual violence can be stopped. Over 130 schools, organizations, and institutions have worked with BARCC to bring sexual violence prevention training and programs to their community. You can be a part of this movement to end sexual violence and make your community a safer space.
BARCC’s Community Awareness and Prevention Services (CAPS) program provides education and training to schools, college campuses, police, businesses, community-based organizations, and communities. Some trainings that cover counseling and BARCC services are led by BARCC's clinical staff. Our trainings cover how to respond appropriately to survivors of sexual assault and how to create school and workplace cultures that reduce the occurrence of sexual assault in the first place. Training facilitators and speakers are either BARCC staff or community volunteers. Speakers from BARCC’s Survivor Speakers Bureau also are available to go into the community to share their personal experiences with sexual violence—including reflections on the incident, the aftermath, and the road to recovery.
We offer trainings in several areas:
- Responding to disclosures of rape and sexual assault
- Beginning and advanced clinical training for clinical professionals
- Organizational policy development and review on responding to and preventing sexual violence
- Understanding the dynamics of sexual assault
The CAPS staff have particular expertise in working with youth and adults who work with them; immigrant communities; college students, faculty and staff; and professional staff such as police, health-care providers, and social service agencies.
