Event description


Accredited Training: Gender Responsive Trauma Focused Approach for Engaging Women's Recovery from Sexual Violence: Supporting Survivors' Resilience, Moving Beyond and Through Experiences of Sexual Violence.

About this course

This course will use theoretical constructs from gender analysis perspectives on sexual violence to examine prevelance, explore definitions, and challenge popularist attitudes towards sexual violence, from a trauma focused approach. This will involve an exploration of the neurobiology of trauma responses to contextualise the range and depth of trauma symptomology and the ensuing legacy of sexual violence. The course will also introduce strength and evidence based approaches to working holistically with women who have experienced sexual violence, from a culturally relevant perspective. The programme will also include specialist information from Rights of Women on the legal frameworks in relation to sexual violence.

Who this course is for

Women and Girls Network (WGN) training courses are funded by London Councils (LC) under the 2nd Tier Ascent Project, and the criteria for applying to and attending these courses are set out below:

These courses have been developed for front-line female staff, working directly with Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) working within London organisations. Please note due to funding requirements, this free course is only available to female professionals providing VAWG services in London.

Due to funding restrictions, statutory organisations cannot access this free LC funded training.

Due to the level of demand for WGN training, and to ensure that as many organisations as possible are able to benefit from accessing training, we cannot accept more than 2 applicants from any one organisation for each course.

It is usually not possible to offer individual delegates a place on more than one training course within the same academic year.

Cancellation policy

If you do not cancel your confirmed allocated place more than 48 hours before the course commences your organisation will be charged an administration fee of £50.00 per day. Once a place on the course has been offered and accepted, failure to attend or submit course work may result in a £50.00 fee.

Please note WGN training courses are frequently oversubscribed and, when possible, we would like to offer places to other delegates on the waiting list. Therefore, if your application is successful and a place is allocated to you but you cannot attend the training, please notify us as soon as possible.

Occasionally WGN may decide to cancel a course if the number of delegates attending would mean that delivery would not be cost-effective. We endeavour to give all delegates as much notice as possible of cancelled training.

Course requirements

Please note that by attending this accredited training, you are agreeing to complete and submit, by the agreed date, the assignments that are attached to each course. Details of the assignments will be given out at the training. You are also agreeing to attend all training sessions and complete all follow-up questionnaires provided by WGN. You will not receive credits for the course if assignments are not completed.

This course is free, however WGN will not be able to cover the costs for travel expenses, child/dependent care, and meals/refreshments.
