Loyola’s Sexual Assault Response Advocacy Initiative is a collaborative effort to train students, faculty, and staff to respond to individuals in the wake of sexual assault.
The spring 2016 Advocates training will take place on Saturday, April 9th from 8:30am to 5:00pm in the Octavia Room. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
During the training, the following strategic areas will be addressed: a) knowledge of the interpersonal dynamics of sexual assault and common reactions of victims; b) information regardingLouisiana’s legal definitions; c) how to communicate with victims and how to communicate in a crisis; and d) outline of medical options, Loyola’s resources, and resources through LUPD and NOPD. Additionally, skill building activities will be an experiential part of the training.
