        SExual assault victim advocacy school (SAVAS)

        This course is designed for community based advocates who are new to the sexual assault field. It addresses the basics of being a victim advocate — answering the crisis line, providing individual and systems advocacy and providing outreach in your community. Participants will have opportunities to practice skills necessary to provide comprehensive advocacy for victims. New sexual assault victim advocates, domestic violence victim advocates, and other professionals who want to learn more about sexual violence are encouraged to attend. 

        SAVAS consists of a classroom component, in addition to a series of sessions via webinar prior to and after the training.  Participants will be expected to have completed each session.
