Virtual 40-Hour Confidential Advisor Training
October 4 -9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, repeating until 10/06/2022
The Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act requires each institution of higher learning have a 40-hour trained Confidential Advisor available to students.
This Resilience training will examine sexual assault’s impact on survivors and their loved ones. Attendees will leave the training with legal and medical options for students in a trauma-informed context.
Trainees will gain basic crisis intervention skills, explore the neurobiology of trauma, and learn how to respond to disclosures. They will also learn about the legal and medical remedies available to survivors and explore how sexual violence impacts groups of survivors experiencing multiple forms of oppression. Trainees will also learn in-depth state and federal laws that outline procedures and responsibilities of higher education institutions and their employees. This training will conclude with an emphasis on vicarious trauma and self-care and empower trainees with resources they may share with their communities. Resilience trainers have tailored this training for higher education professionals and those fulfilling the role of confidential advisor.
