With increased media attention and high profile cases, more people are coming forward with their own, personal stories of sexual violence. Would you know what to do if someone told you they were the victim of sexual abuse or assault? Would you know how to react appropriately, what their options are, or the appropriate community agencies for referral?

Many professionals in the health and mental healthcare fields are likely to be the first person a survivor shares their story with—and that first interaction can make or break the survivor’s decision to move forward with a rape kit at the hospital, getting mental health support, or police reporting.

It’s no small thing being trusted with someone’s story of sexual abuse, so we know you want to be prepared.

The Saskatoon Sexual Assault & Information Centre (SSAIC) is excited to offer a 2-day intensive course called First Responder to Sexual Assault Training™. The course content was developed and trademarked by the Association of Alberta Sexual Assault Services (AASAS), and SSAIC has three accredited facilitators who can offer this training in our home community of Saskatoon.

Registrations must be received no later than one week prior to the class date, to allow everyone plenty of time to complete the online learning.
Amanda will set up the online class and provide everyone with a personal access code and additional instructions.
