Responding to Sexual Assault for People with Intellectual Disability

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This one day workshop is designed for service providers that work with people with disability. It will equip participants with an in-depth understanding of preventative approaches to violence and abuse. The workshop will help them to recognise where workplace cultures can impede best practice responses to sexual and other violence, and give them strategies for addressing these issues.

This workshop will provide the information needed by staff to respond appropriately to cases of sexual assault including information on legislation, services available, rights of persons with intellectual disability and ways to respond supportively.

Participants will be better equipped to identify, respond to and prevent sexual and other violence against people with disability, ultimately protecting their right to live free from violence and abuse.
