Sexual Assault Response Team Training
This multidisciplinary training prepares advocates, law enforcement, medical providers, and prosecutors to handle sexual assault cases in victim-centered ways as a team. This training is usually held twice annually in March and November and is coordinated by the CDVSA. For more information, please click here.
Wellness Training
This in-person training for advocates is usually combined with other in-person trainings. The goal of this training is to refresh advocates and give them tools for self-care to reduce vicarious trauma and burn out. It’s also a chance to connect with other advocates from around the state.
Advanced Sexual Assault Advocacy Training
This annual in-person training is for ANDVSA member program advocates to learn about more in-depth topics related to working with victims and survivors of sexual assault.
Legal Advocacy Training
This annual in-person training is geared towards learning both basic and advanced legal advocacy knowledge and skills.
