Leave a comment

The Sexual Assault Centre of Hamilton and Area (SACHA) is hosting an informative workshop on how to help support survivors of sexual assault.

Here is the information:

How to Support Survivors Workshop

Have you ever worried about a friend but didn’t know how to talk to them about it?

One in four Canadian women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime.

Most survivors of sexual violence never seek professional help. It is important that as friends we know how to respond to friends who have experienced violence.

Participants in this workshop will learn:

  • The myths that exist about rape, abuse, incest and sexual assault.
  • A survivor’s experience.
  • Canadian sexual assault laws.
  • Non-judgmental ways to respond to disclosures of violence.
  • Resources for survivors in the Hamilton community.

Date: Tuesday, January 25th

Time: 1pm—4pm

Location: YWCA Board Room – 75 MacNab Street South, Hamilton, ON

Please RSVP by January 19th at 4pm as space is limited:
