The professionalism and expertise of sexual assault advocates are essential to maintaining clients' privacy. The Utah Confidential Communications Act requires that sexual assault advocates have forty hours of sexual assault-specific advocacy training. Conversations with victims or alleged victims are privileged only if the advocate has completed forty hours of sexual violence-specific training. We collaborate with local and regional care personnel to provide our Sexual Assault Counselor Training. The training is available to advocates and law enforcement. Our training team includes legal, medical, and human services professionals who facilitate each topic alongside our trained and dedicated staff. For more information, CLICK HERE!
