This training is intended for advocates who have been working with sexual violence survivors 3 years and beyond. The National Resource Sharing Project (RSP) and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) have developed two assessment tools to assist those working with victims of sexual violence in identifying strengths and strategies to improve their practice. The Personal Assessment tool will help individual advocates to reflect on their own services, knowledge and relationships with community partners. The Organizational Assessment will help organizations’ leadership staff to better understand the state of their service provision overall, their entire staff’s knowledge and their organization’s relationships with community partners.
Training will help:
- Participants to identify key competencies needed to provide advocacy services for individuals that experience sexual violence.
- Participants will be able to identify their areas of strength in regards to sexual assault advocacy and readiness to adequately serve victims of sexual violence.
- Participants will be able to identify at least 2 action steps for enhancing their sexual assault advocacy competencies.
