French training session available for for Victims and Survivors of Crime week

The following are details of a French-only training session offered on June 1.

For several years, many women have gone public (media) about their experiences with sexual assault. For example, last week, our colleague Josée Laramée posted a video on Facebook about her own experience. This video has been seen 23,000 times and shared 300 times. These figures demonstrate the need to talk about this. The Centre d’Aide et de lutte contre les agressions à caractère sexuel (CALACS) francophone d’Ottawa is offering a training session on June 1, 2017 for Victims and Survivors of Crime week.

Training outline

  • What impacts are there on survivors when they reveal their experiences in the mass media?
  • What evidence is admissible during a trial?

If you would like to have the tools to understand and help survivors who have shared their experiences on social media, join us for this session. Spots are limited. The price includes meal, certificate, attestation and a book of resources.
