Mount Royal University has partnered with University of Calgary to deliver, First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™

The First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ is intended to build the capacity of professionals, para-professionals and community members to assess and respond effectively to disclosures of sexual assault and sexual abuse. Survivors who receive safe and supportive responses to disclosures of sexual violence are more likely to reach out for help from medical and counselling services and/or report to police. First Responder to Sexual Assault and Abuse Training™ is a comprehensive two-day training, inclusive of the full continuum of sexual violence and across the lifespan.

Please note catering is not provided. Only covered drinks are allowed in the training room.
