Training Teams

An interdisciplinary team of trainers is essential. We strongly recommend that this curriculum be delivered by an interdisciplinary team of trainers who are knowledgeable on issues of sexual assault, community efforts to manage sex offenders, and local resources available for prevention and victim advocacy. Even if the goal of your educational event is limited to basic education about sexual assault and prevention, community members will have a variety of concerns, questions, and needs that cut across various professions. Law enforcement, victim advocacy, probation/parole supervision, and sex offender treatment providers are all important members of such a training team.
