    Start by Believing Utah County Planning Meeting

    SBB_Utah_County_Event_Banner-01.png

    Join the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA)Start By Believing Utah, and other community partners for our first planning meeting of the new Start by Believing Utah County Committee. We're in need of passionate volunteers from the community who are interested in making Utah County more supportive of sexual violence survivors. This meeting is free and open to the public, any one with questions should contact theUtah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA) at (801) 746-0404 or info@ucasa.org. 

    Start By Believing Utah is part of a national public awareness campaign dedicated to ending the cycle of silence for survivors of sexual violence. 

    Friends or family members are typically the first people that a victim confides in after an assault. Each person's reaction is the first step in a long path toward justice and healing for survivors. Knowing how to respond in a supportive way is critical—a negative response can worsen the trauma and create an environment where perpetrators do not face accountability for their crimes.

    Because rapists often re-offend, one failed response can equal additional victims. Start by Believing will lead the way toward stopping this cycle, by creating a positive community response, informing the public, uniting allies and supporters, and improving our personal reactions. The goal is to change the world, and outcomes for victims, one response at a time.

    This campaign is a program of the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA) and is coordinated by a dedicated committee of volunteers dedicated to ensuring that every victim and survivor of sexual violence receive the supportive response that they deserve. In addition to the statewide coordinating council, there are several Start by Believing Campaigns in various communities across the state like this one!

Using online modules, a nationally developed virtual SANE DVD and classroom time, this course will provide the basic didactic and clinical information to begin the process of becoming a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) for adolescent and adult victims. The training includes presentations from SANE nurses, local law enforcement, district attorney’s office, advocates and therapists working with victims of sexual assault and rape. Practical experience with a focus on assessment and photo-documentation of injury is a primary objective of this course.

    Class Day 1: Post-test and discussion of content in on-line modules. Agency experts will provide presentations on the role of SANE, advocates, myths about rape, techniques in working with victims and offenders.
