Sexual assault advocates based in rural communities are often one of the only resources in the area who have any knowledge about sexual assault. For this reason it often becomes necessary for rural sexual assault advocates to provide advocacy in a broad range of settings. This webinar will outline comprehensive services and provide solutions on how to address the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of rural sexual assault survivors. Register.
Join us for an interactive webinar outlining how agencies can adopt the empowerment model we use with survivors to use for ourselves. Advocates working at rural dual/multi-service agencies are often more isolated from fellow staff members, feel overextended, and often don’t have as much support as they would like, all of which can take a toll on their emotional wellbeing. This webinar will address issues of self-care, organizational trauma, and staff empowerment with a focus on positivity and creating longevity within this work. Register.
