Boulder’s Sexual Assault Resource Center to Offer Continuing Education Credits in a Full-Day Training
Boulder, CO (December 5, 2019) – In Boulder County, at least 94,000 people have been directly affected by sexual violence. Unfortunately, many counselors have not had specific training in working with people who have experienced these crimes. Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA) is facilitating a full-day training on January 31st designed to deepen clinicians’ skills in counseling survivors of sexual violence. Individuals who complete this course will receive 6.5 Continuing Education (CE) credits.
This course will be taught by nationally recognized trauma expert Dr. Janine D’Anniballe, Director of Trauma Services and Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA), and Lindsey Breslin, LCSW, MESA Hotline Supervisor, who has 25 years of experience working in sexual violence. When asked about the importance of this training to counselors, Dr. D’Anniballe said, “As we know, many people with sexual violence histories seek therapy at some point in their healing process. Our goal through this training is to help counselors feel equipped to answer the questions that could present after someone has experienced sexual violence – whether the violence was 1 week ago or decades ago. We want to share our expertise of what helps clients heal from this trauma and help clinicians build their expert capacity in this area.”
The training will be held at the Imagine! Conference Center located at 1665 Coal Creek Drive in Lafayette. Early bird registration is $175 and is available until January 1st. Registration after January 1st is $195. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. For more information and to register: https://movingtoendsexualassault.org/events/
