Please join us for August's peer sharing call specific to SAKI and MDTs. This call will be co- facilitated by Cynthia Clark, SAKI Coordinator and Victim Advocate. During this call, Cynthia will share any SAKI updates and we will be hearing from other RCCs throughout NC who have been building successful MDTs in their communities.
The staff at NCCASA believes that education is one of the essential components to preventing sexual violence.

In this two-hour workshop, Anti-Human Trafficking Specialist and Project Lead, Courtney Dunkerton, will facilitate a panel of the Project Team representing Orange County Rape Crisis Center, Orange County Local Reentry Council, and national partner, Just Detention International, in which they will share the resource, and discuss the challenges, successes, and lessons learned in developing it.
This training will cover both North Carolina Mandatory reporting laws, discuss advocate privilege, and answer any lingering questions about mandatory reporting. We will stream our "Sweeping Changes" recording and then have a Q&A session going over any additional questions you may have.
This training opportunity is for those new to the sexual violence victim services field who want to enhance their knowledge of sexual violence and be introduced to the tenants of victim advocacy.
This training is intended for those who have completed both the on-line SA 101 training module and the SA 101 webinar sessions and have been serving sexual assault survivors for less than a year. Advocates who have been serving survivors longer than a year but wish to deepen their advocacy foundation are also encouraged to attend. This training will give individuals the opportunity to dive deeper into understanding the role of the advocate, the advocate philosophy and ethics.
During this 1.5 hour session, you will be presented with a scenario through which you will gain knowledge and practice using skills to help parents not only support their teens that have experienced sexual violence, but also how to support parents who may be reflecting on their own experiences of abuse and/ or supporting them as secondary survivors.
By being a member, you gain access to our member mailings, the NCCASA Resource Library, access to information obtained or produced by NCCASA, webinars and trainings, reduced fees for our statewide conference, and opportunities to network in North Carolina.
