Ask Me: Creating Safe Spaces for Children when Issues Arise, and How to Help!

Tuesday, April 13th 2021

Children today are connected via the internet and in the community to a staggering number of people. Being the person that your child comes to when a problem arises or when they have a question, is critical to intervening and preventing sexual violence.  This workshop will explore boundaries and encourage parents while giving some practical suggestions on starting the conversation.

Discuss complexities of children’s boundaries and the impact on prevention

Build skills in responding to issues and creating supportive environments

Empower parents to question, engage and have conversations as a tool for safety

      In the Hands of Adults: Moving Responsibility from Children to Adults in Keeping Children Safe

      Tuesday, April 20th 2021

      When adults engage with and question other adults in their children’s lives prevention of violence happens. In this workshop we will explore strategies to help interrupt questionable behavior in other adults as well as empower adults to hold other adults accountable, moving away from putting all the responsibility on children.

       

      OBJECTIVE OF TRAINING

      • Explore ways adults can connect to adults in their children’s lives

      • Develop skills in identifying red flags and questionable behaviors

      • Bystander strategies

      • Look at ways to create a safer world for children

        Understanding Trauma and Sexual Violence

        Wednesday, April 21st 2021

        The ‘Understanding Trauma and Sexual Violence’ training will provide an overview of sexual-based trauma, appropriate for community members and service providers. The training will explore the dynamics of sexual violence and abuse, including the impact trauma has on our body and brain.

         

        OBJECTIVE OF TRAINING

        • Define and explore the dynamics of sexual violence and child sexual abuse
        • Gain an understanding of Trauma Theory and how the body/brain are impacted
        • Understand triggers, flashbacks and other common symptoms
        • Learn about PAAR services

          Sexual Violence 101 and Trauma Informed Care for Birth Workers

          Tuesday, April 27th 2021

          This training is intended for birth workers and health professionals who work with expecting, pregnant or laboring people. This might include doulas, midwives, OB/GYNs, labor and delivery nurses, and nurse practitioners or any other providers who work with expecting, pregnant or laboring people.

          The training will review the impact of sexual violence and abuse, including common triggers for pregnant and birthing individuals. The training will use trauma-informed care as a guide for providers in how to respond to and support a pregnant or birthing individual who has experienced sexual trauma. De-identified, real life examples will be used to demonstrate what practices may need to be adjusted per patient, and participants will learn how trauma-informed care can be a tool in reducing revictimization or in avoiding unintentionally causing harm to patients who are survivors.

          Co-presented by PAAR and Dr. Kailee Venzin, the founder of Resilience Motherhood, a Physical Therapy practice designed to help moms feel like the best version of themselves physically and mentally while growing humans and momming. She and her team help survivors of sexual assault and abuse re-claim their power and birth with confidence.
