This 4 hour workshop provides mental health practitioners with skill development in offering trauma-informed care for survivors of sexual violence. We will address the neurobiology of trauma as a framework to understanding trauma-informed care. We will address areas of supporting survivors by attending to intersectional identities, establishing a safe environment, providing psychoeducation, and offering control, collaboration, and choice. We will also address steps involved in reporting sexual violence, advocating for survivors, and practicing self-care for practitioners.
Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Attendees will gain knowledge about the current research on the neurobiology of trauma and holistic models of healing to better inform treatment interventions.

Objective 2: Attendees will learn at least 1-2 skills for supporting and counseling survivors of sexual violence in a manner that is informed by current literature on trauma and trauma-informed care.

Objective 3: Attendees will describe key steps to reporting sexual violence on a college campus.
