About the Workshop:

The plethora of sex scandals dominating the news is one of many issues that contribute to what Sandra Bloom calls an “insane society.” Sexual assault is a systemic problem impacting society and has now gained public attention. With more and more people speaking out, it is imperative that we understand the issues associated with sexual assault (e.g., disorders, symptoms, social issues, etc.) and become equipped to assist survivors and serve as advocates for survivors and social justice.

Mental health and health care providers and educators should be prepared to provide support and assistance to survivors of sexual assault, drawing from a multiplicity of resources. It is imperative that we have a working knowledge of the broad range of the types of sexual assault. When victims are entrapped due to cultural and oppressive views of sexuality, our role is to help the survivor understand what is happening, process emotions associated with the assault, and to become empowered to make decisions which are not driven by undue shame.
