Resilience Training Institute

All professionals and service providers should feel equipped to support survivors, and all survivors should be able to count on trustworthy, specialized institutional responses. In 2018, we established the Resilience Training Institute (RTI) in order to meet the urgent need among Chicago professionals and service providers for formally structured, high quality training in sexual violence response and prevention.

Preventing and Responding to Sexual Violence in Higher Education Training

Resilience hosts training for Higher Education Institutions as required under the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act. This training is the annual training required for anyone on campus who could potentially receive a report of sexual violence. This brand new training is highly specialized to those working at institutions of higher learning to cover the topics required by law which includes an overview of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking laws, information on trauma response, how to support survivors, and much more!
