Addressing Sexual Trauma & Abuse Within Our Communities - NASCO Institute

Session materials from “Addressing Sexual Trauma & Abuse Within Our Communities,” presented by Jess Harman at NASCO Institute 2016.


We are currently living in a society which not only expects, but accepts that sexual violence is going to occur. A society which more often than not fails to believe victim-survivors by blaming them for their assault. By another name, we are living in a ‘rape culture.’ By understanding the issue of sexual violence, consent, and rape culture, we can learn what we can do individually and as a community to support victim-survivors while addressing and preventing sexual violence from occurring within our spaces.
