Event description
Understand trauma reactions and learn tangible skills to support sexual violence survivors at this workshop by AWARE's SACC.

About this Event

"Are you sure that happened? Why didn't you fight back? You should have known better." These are some common responses survivors of sexual assault have heard, which may further their feelings of doubt, guilt and shame.

First response that is sensitive to the survivor's needs and choices is necessary in preventing re-victimization. One experience of sexual assault is one experience too many. We may not always know the right words to say, but we can all agree that sexual assault should never happen to anyone.

One way to show zero tolerance for sexual assault is through our own words and actions. It is not always easy for survivors to tell someone about what happened. In fact, for some survivors, it can be especially daunting.

As an individual that they put their trust in, our response becomes pivotal in their journey of recovery. SACC's First Responder Training helps familiarize participants with trauma reactions and symptoms to better contribute to a survivor's well-being. In this workshop, SACC will share more on the following:

1. Definition of sexual assault and harassment

2. Recognising Singapore's legal framework

3. Understanding consent

4. Understanding the impact of sexual assault and trauma on survivors

5. Role of a first responder

6. Providing support to survivors of sexual assault

7. Resources available for help

8. Key skills such as ensuring safety, active listening and empathy
