BARCC's Sexual Violence Prevention and Response Summer Institute is a unique opportunity for professionals to develop vital skills for preventing and responding to sexual assault, harassment, and more. At this critical time, as the #MeToo movement continues and grows, the Summer Institute gives professionals the training and information they need to understand the many aspects of sexual violence, work to prevent it, and support survivors.
Whether you are a college administrator, social worker, hospital employee, or other community professional, you will learn best practices that can be used across fields and industries. Based on evidence-based research, the 40-hour Summer Institute lays out steps for creating safe, healthy working and learning environments for clients, students, and employees.
BARCC’s trainers bring years of experience to lessons on how to respond to survivors of sexual violence, trauma-informed counseling techniques to support survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones, how to assess for suicidality and other harmful coping methods, and working with diverse populations, to name a few. Topics include the following:
- Responding to disclosures of sexual violence
- Preventing sexual violence
- A deeper look at Title IX
- Working with people in communities that face greater barriers to services, such as people with disabilities, the military, male survivors, LGBTQ survivors, and people of color
Continuing education units (CEUs) for social workers are available.
