  • UCASA August 2021 40 Hour Sexual Assault Counselor Training (Virtual)

    40hourfbeventbanner-01.png

    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, law enforcement, health care providers, clergy, and the general public. Our training team includes legal, medical, and human services professionals who facilitate each topic alongside our trained and dedicated staff.

    Our training was carefully developed with input from all sexual violence advocates and programs across the state. More specifically, this course offers the following benefits:

    • Meets the requirements outlined in the Utah Confidential Communications Act and requirements set forth by Utah's funding agencies. 
    • Gives attendees information and tools to understand the role of sexual violence advocates.
    • Supports attendees in recognizing and combating bias - both explicit and implicit.
    • Empowers attendees to maintain the dignity of victims.
    • Supports attendees in encouraging victim’s self-advocacy and personal decision making throughout the response processes.
    • Situates each participant within their role as an advocate and reinforces their responsibility to the agency, its clients, and to victims.
    • Certifies volunteers, staff, and community allies as sexual assault advocates - allowing for privileged, confidential communications with clients. 

    We are committed to training excellence, and we are confident that this collaborative training solution will be a valuable enhancement to your current volunteer and staff training program.

    As a professional training and development organization, we combine instructional expertise with curriculum development skills and an extensive history of advocacy and direct service experience.

    Basic Structure

    Our Sexual Assault Counselor Training is the result of decades of feedback from professionals who work with sexual violence survivors and perpetrators throughout the state. The curriculum is twenty-four hours of statewide core topics presented by our staff and sixteen hours of community-specific topics facilitated by the needs of the local community. This overall course design is meant to meet the needs of each area, population, and specific community dynamics. We work with local communities to determine the course content of the 16 hours of community-specific content and any continuing education or professional development topics. 

    Course Overview

    The Sexual Assault Counselor Training course is designed to meet the training needs of individuals who might respond to a victim of sexual violence. The course is meant to meet the needs of a variety of volunteers, staff, and allied professionals who consider themselves advocates—whether as law enforcement officers, prosecutors, volunteers, advocates, medical personnel, caseworkers, or educators. However, this course is not designed to provide the intricacies of the investigation, prosecution, evidence collection, or case management. This course is particularly helpful to individuals who provide many different types of services to victims of sexual violence seeking skill-based knowledge and tools for improved response and intervention.

    A side benefit of the course is its multidisciplinary appeal to professionals not working directly with sexual violence issues who also want a better understanding of sexual assault intervention concepts and policies. This course is designed and available to all public service, advocacy, and education organizations, along with information about why the course is helpful to them.

    It is critical to attend all 40 hours of the training. It will take place on the following dates:

    Monday August 16 5:30pm-9:30pm

    Tuesday August 17 5:30pm-9:30pm

    Wednesday August 18 5:30pm-9:30pm

  • Entrenamiento para asesores de Asalto Sexual- 40 Horas (Octubre)

     

     

     

    Entrenamiento para asesores

     de Asalto Sexual

     

    El profesionalismo y la experiencia de los defensores de las agresiones sexuales son esenciales para mantener la privacidad de los clientes. La Ley de Comunicaciones Confidenciales de Utah exige que los defensores de las víctimas de agresiones sexuales tengan cuarenta horas de formación específica en materia de agresiones sexuales. Las conversaciones con las víctimas o presuntas víctimas son posibles sólo si el defensor ha completado cuarenta horas de capacitación específica sobre violencia sexual. Colaboramos con el personal de atención local y regional para proporcionar nuestra formación de consejeros en materia de agresión sexual. El entrenamiento está disponible para los defensores, la aplicación de la ley, los proveedores de atención médica, el clero y el público en general. Nuestro equipo de entrenamiento incluye profesionales legales, médicos y de servicios humanos que facilitan cada tema junto con nuestro personal entrenado y dedicado.

     

     Nuestro entrenamiento fue cuidadosamente desarrollado con la aportación de todos los defensores y programas de violencia sexual en todo el estado. Más específicamente, este curso ofrece los siguientes beneficios:

    • Cumple con los requisitos establecidos en la Ley de Comunicaciones Confidenciales de Utah y los requisitos establecidos por los organismos de financiación de Utah. 
    • Da a los asistentes información y herramientas para entender el papel de los defensores de la violencia sexual.
    • Apoya a los asistentes en el reconocimiento y la lucha contra los prejuicios, tanto explícitos como implícitos.
    • Capacita a los asistentes para mantener la dignidad de las víctimas.
    • Apoya a los asistentes en el fomento de la autodefensa de las víctimas y la toma de decisiones personales a lo largo de los procesos de respuesta.
    • Sitúa a cada participante dentro de su papel de defensor y refuerza su responsabilidad hacia la agencia, sus clientes y las víctimas.
    • Certifica a los voluntarios, al personal y a los aliados de la comunidad como defensores de la agresión sexual, permitiendo comunicaciones privilegiadas y confidenciales con los clientes.  

     

    Estamos comprometidos con la excelencia en la formación y confiamos en que esta solución de formación colaborativa será una valiosa mejora para su actual programa de formación de voluntarios y personal.

     

    Como organización de desarrollo y formación profesional, combinamos la experiencia en la enseñanza con las habilidades de desarrollo de currículos y un amplio historial de defensa y experiencia en servicios directos.

     

    Estructura básica

     

    Nuestro entrenamiento de consejeros de asalto sexual es el resultado de décadas de retroalimentación de profesionales que trabajan con sobrevivientes y perpetradores de violencia sexual en todo el estado. El plan de estudios es de veinticuatro horas de temas básicos estatales presentados por nuestro personal y dieciséis horas de temas específicos de la comunidad facilitados por las necesidades de la comunidad local. Este diseño general del curso está pensado para satisfacer las necesidades de cada área, población y dinámicas específicas de la comunidad. Trabajamos con las comunidades locales para determinar el contenido del curso de las 16 horas de contenido específico para la comunidad y cualquier tema de educación continua o desarrollo profesional.

     

    Resumen del curso

    El curso de capacitación para consejeros en materia de agresión sexual está diseñado para satisfacer las necesidades de capacitación de las personas que podrían responder a una víctima de violencia sexual. El curso está destinado a satisfacer las necesidades de una variedad de voluntarios, personal y profesionales aliados que se consideran defensores, ya sea como agentes del orden público, fiscales, voluntarios, defensores, personal médico, trabajadores sociales o educadores. Sin embargo, este curso no está diseñado para proporcionar las complejidades de la investigación, el enjuiciamiento, la recopilación de pruebas o la gestión de casos. Este curso es particularmente útil para las personas que prestan muchos tipos diferentes de servicios a las víctimas de la violencia sexual y que buscan conocimientos e instrumentos basados en las aptitudes para mejorar la respuesta y la intervención.

    Un beneficio secundario del curso es su atractivo multidisciplinario para los profesionales que no trabajan directamente con cuestiones de violencia sexual y que también desean una mejor comprensión de los conceptos y políticas de intervención en caso de agresión sexual. Este curso está diseñado y disponible para todas las organizaciones de servicio público, defensa y educación, junto con información sobre por qué el curso les resulta útil.
