About this event

First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ is a comprehensive two-day training, inclusive of the full continuum of sexual violence and across the lifespan. This training is intended to build the capacity of professionals, paraprofessionals and community members to assess and respond effectively to disclosures of sexual assault and sexual abuse.
