Sexual Assault Awareness Month
In honor of #SAAM, the Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center is hosting 4 completely free training sessions throughout the month. Trainings will be facilitated by our Sexual Assault Counselor and Educator Stephanie Joyal. Click the links below to join!
Sexual Assault 101:
The course will cover the definition of sexual assault, dynamics, myths and facts of sexual assault, as well as relevant RI laws. Participants will learn about common survivor reactions as well as credibility challenges that are faced by victims and prosecutors after a disclosure of sexual assault.
The internet can ease communication with friends and family and can be a fun place to socialize, however it is a place where many unsafe people and situations are found. In this session, participants will learn about safe posting, sexting and the related legal and social risks, and gain knowledge and understanding of online predators and grooming in order to reduce dangers to youth online.
