Safety Planning & Advocacy Skills (Virtual)
Monday, March 27, 2023, 5:00pm-7:00pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. In this workshop, we will explore the role of domestic and sexual violence advocates, including setting healthy boundaries, and the basic foundations of supporting and validating survivors. We will learn to reframe the effects of traumatizing events on survivors and discuss how to help them focus and recognize their present skills. There will be a discussion on how to provide transparency and create a safety and lethality assessment. Safety preparation suggestions will incorporate various situations such as in the home, when preparing to leave a dangerous situation, on the job, in public, and more. Additionally, we will consider emotional safety and various methods for supporting and comforting children. Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to develop safety planning ideas and practice active listening and reassurance techniques.
