Though the above quote refers to substance misuse counsellors dealing with sexual abuse, it could just as easily be applied to working in any field where sexual abuse may be disclosed. Likewise, the sentiment not only applies to counsellors; keyworkers, social workers, volunteers, nurses and police are all likely to be in a position at some time in their career to be be faced with a disclosure of sexual abuse/assault from a man. Training in male sexual assault issues is rare and Mankind aims to readdress the balance by providing professional training in a variety of different formats to suit most working environments.
Knowledge is competence
A little knowledge can go a long way and the training provided by Mankind ensures that participants leave a training event feeling that they have gained knowledge, skills and most importantly, confidence in their ability to handle a disclosure.
Designed for your needs
At Mankind, each training workshop is designed specifically for your needs. We talk to you to find out your unique working environment and situation. Then we design a tailor made workshop to ensure that your needs are met.
Designed to suit you
Training is offered in the following formats to fit in with your working environment:One-day Workshop
Allowing a whole day enables a thorough overview and opportunity to explore the issues.
When a whole day is just not practicable a half-day enables a focus on specific issues.
When the above are not practicable, a question & answer session as part of supervision or a team meeting can be an ideal setting to get your questions answered.
