    This course aims to support participants to gain an increased understanding around the complexities of disclosure and in particular how those affected may react or respond. This generic training is aimed at support workers and other professionals who may facilitate disclosure and/or reporting and recording of sexual trauma. By the end of the training participants will have:

    • Increased understanding of the complexities surrounding those who have experienced sexual trauma;
    • Be able to recognise the difficulties for those disclosing or reporting sexual trauma and how that will be presented;
    • Increased understanding of the importance of the listener/helper role when working with sexual trauma;
    • Increased skills and understanding in responding to individual disclosure;
    • Increased knowledge and understanding of good practice.

    Facilitators: Lynn Simpson and Lorraine Cafferkey, Kingdom Abuse Survivors Project.
