What's On

 

Sexual Violence Workshop 


Thursday 27th July 2017
White Elephant, 442 Tuam Street, Christchurch


This half day workshop will take a look at the topic of Sexual Violence. The aim is to inform participants about what it is, how it effects people, what to do if people disclose Sexual Violence to them, what services can help and how to access these. We will also look at what roles we can all play in supporting those who have experienced sexual violence, both in crisis and in the long term.  

This topic creates a lot of debate with myths and misunderstandings being common. It can also seem too complicated or potentially distressing or uncomfortable as a topic as so we tend to leave it alone. Come along and get some accurate information and use this forum to ask your questions. Our hope is for participants to gain some understanding and respect for the complexity of this issue, while not being overwhelmed by it.

START has provided specialist Sexual Violence services for sexually abused children, youth and adults alongside their whanau for 30 years here in Christchurch. They offer a range of services including ACC counselling, consultation and education. These services are usually provided free to users.

MSSAT (Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust) has provided a variety of support services for males as well as their whanau including individual support, peer support groups and social work. They have provided services in Christchurch for 20 years.

The workshop presenters will include Catherine Gallagher, START’s Clinical Practice Manager and a Clinical Psychologist; Maggy Tai Rakena, START’s Manager and a registered Social Worker; Ken Clearwater, MSSAT’s National Victims Advocate and Sue Bagshaw, a GP at 298 Youth Health Clinic.
