Description: Up to 90% of individuals with developmental disabilities are sexually abused at some time. Many of the survivors are not identified and/or do not receive the necessary supports to heal. Disability service professionals play a pivotal role in helping survivors of sexual violence. This workshop is designed to enhance participants’ ability to identify, respond and provide ongoing support to survivors with disabilities.
- Improve their ability to identify and respond to sexual violence using trauma informed strategies.
- Enhance knowledge about processing styles and methods to engage people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism in the recovery process.
- Increase their comfort and confidence with supporting people with intellectual disabilities and/or autism who experience sexual violence.
- Practice strategies and tools designed to support survivors with disabilities.
