Direct and Ethical Communication: An Essential Supporting Structure to Serve Survivors and Build Organizational Resilience
July 11, 2017
Workshop Description: 
This webinar will take an advanced look at a foundational skill in our work: communication. So much of advocates' work with systems, survivors, and colleagues centers on effective communication. Advocates and managers are called to challenge the oppression woven into systems and do so while still maintaining a relationship to those systems. Sexual assault program staff are also responsible for challenging each other to grow in our understanding of oppression. Many of us come to the field with communication skills that do not meet the enormous needs of our work. To be successful working with survivors and systems, working within healthy organizations, and to push for meaningful change we need the skills to communicate directly and ethically. These skills also serve to support health and increase resilience at the organizational level. Participants will leave this webinar with practical skills to implement these communication techniques in their daily work and lives.
