1/26/2021 - Sex Trafficking: Is Media Getting It Wrong?

Event Date: 1/26/2021

Time: 12-1 pm CST

Many of us have seen films like Taken. Many of us grew up hearing about stranger danger. Many of us have had a concerned relative or friend send us a post warning us of the threat of sex trafficking outside of our local market or superstore.  What has this information taught us about the reality of sex trafficking in the US and what are we still missing?

Join the SAC Training Team as we explore the ways in which sex trafficking is portrayed and discussed in film, television, and on social media.

1/27/2021 - Sexual Assault 101 & Responding to Disclosures of Assault

Event Date: 1/27/2021

Time: 1-2:30 pm CST

In this training, we will explore definitions and dynamics to help us better understand sexual trauma and how it impacts victim/survivors. This will include an overview of how our brains and bodies are impacted by trauma, survival responses that may be triggered while speaking to a counselor, and common signs and symptoms associated with sexual assault. We will take this information and turn it into practical skills and considerations for providing trauma-informed direct services to victim/survivors of sexual violence. Additionally, we will discuss how to appropriately and competently support and facilitate healing for victim/survivors while honoring our own experiences, needs and boundaries.
