Course Summary

The women that Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland work with say that what they find most helpful is understanding, acceptance, support and someone to listen to them in a non-judgemental environment.  Many workers tell us that they want to provide this but often feel out of their depth or concerned that they may say the wrong thing when receiving a disclosure about sexual abuse.

This workshop aims to increase supporters’ confidence, awareness, knowledge and skills relating to adults who have experienced child sexual abuse and to explore the issues that may affect workers when receiving disclosures.
