"Redefining Victim-Centered & Trauma-Informed Care to Include Intimacy, Bodies & Pleasure"

2 CE Credits will be offered for LPC, LMFT, SW, and Psychologists - NBCC Approved

Presented by: Dr. Jessica Sánchez

Date: March 22nd, 2024

Time: 9:30am - 11:30am CDT

Location: Webinar Via Zoom

Cost: Free (This training is supported by Award No. 3012706 by the Texas Office of the Governor and Violence Against Women Act Fund.)

When considering best practices for survivor advocacy, language surrounding intimacy, bodies & pleasure is obsolete, filtered, and/or upholds oppressive practices. This workshop will examine victim-centered & trauma-informed approaches through a sex positive framework & describe the correlation between the power of language & affirming care, while expanding understanding of pleasure & intersectional advocacy. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Enhance knowledge on providing sex positive affirming care: Advocates will develop increased competence in sex positive affirmative practices that focus on self-awareness, knowledge, & skills related to survivors of sexual & relationship violence.
  • Address attitudinal & cultural barriers that impact use of language: Advocates will be able to identify and address attitudinal & cultural barriers that may impact their ability to feel comfortable matching their clients use of language when addressing bodily response post-assault.
  • Integration of Intersectionality in Treatment Approaches: Advocates will develop an understanding of clients’ intersecting identities & their impact on bodily response post-assault.
