Tuesday, January 9th 2018
This workshop is available for partners, family, mentors, and friends of gender-based violence survivors. In this workshop, we’ll be covering topics from how trauma affects the brain to how you can best support the survivor in your life, to how vicarious trauma can impact support systems. This workshop will consist of some information sharing as well as group dialogue.
Goals and Target Audience:
The goals of this workshop would be multifold. 1. Participants will leave with an understanding of rape supportive culture. 2. Participants will gain knowledge of how to be a good support person in times of crisis. 3. Participants will learn about vicarious trauma and how it can affect each person (the primary survivor and the support person) in multiple ways.
The target audience would be partners, family, mentors, and friends of gender-based violence survivors.
