About the Workshop

Sexual assault is the most underreported crime, but one of the most prevalent. In workplace settings, many people tasked with providing crisis intervention, advocacy, and psychotherapy are ill-equipped to respond. Kristen Slesar, LCSW (bio), project director of the Bronx Child Trauma Support, one of the operating programs of the Center for Court Innovation, leads a full-day workshop designed to prepare social workers to train people in professional settings to respond appropriately and effectively to disclosures of sexual abuse and assault. Participants will learn about the neurobiology and cultural context of sexual violence; develop a trauma-informed framework for working with victims of sexual violence; and become more attuned to the concerns of victims of sexual violence.

For more information, including workshop learning objectives and full presenter bio, please see the listing on Eventbrite.
