The workshop has been developed using expertise gathered over more than 30 years’ of working directly with survivors; it offers participants valuable insights into the experiences of a person who has been abused, and a better understanding of how abuse happens and who the abusers are. It will help participants know where to begin when supporting people suffering from the impact of CSA and sexual violence.


This training aims to provide participants with an overview of CSA and sexual violence, and evidences the long-term impact these traumatic events have on survivors. It will help participants understand the barriers that exist to disclosure and how they can support and manage this sensitively in their professional or voluntary roles.

The workshop will provide a safe space to discuss and explore reactions to, and fears about, a very challenging subject, and to dispel some of the myths that surround it. By the end of the workshop participants will feel better equipped to support survivors in their work, help signpost them to support agencies, and manage their own self-care.
