Counselling Survivors in an On and Offline World – Date for Your Diary

Date for Your Diary:

Thursday January 14th 2021 – 10:30am to 11:30am

Join Rape Crisis Network Ireland (RCNI) and our very special project co-creator and trainer Dr Jessica Taylor, UK based forensic  psychologist, survivor and author of Why Women Are Blamed for Everything for the launch of our pioneering new training standards programme.

Counselling Survivors in an On and Offline World

Delivering world standard trauma counselling for survivors of sexual violence in a post-pandemic world

Specialist, Standardised, Safe

This Clinical Innovation Programme (CIP) has emerged from the experience of Covid-19 when we had to vacate Rape Crisis Centres and trauma counselling services had to move on-line. While restrictions may be lifted in 2021, remote trauma counselling is here to stay, as part of a new hybrid model of on and off-line clinical counselling.

But it’s vital that we know that what we are doing in this new post-pandemic era is working, is of the highest standard possible, is recognised and is completely survivor centred.

That’s why RCNI is already developing and spearheading this ground-breaking new programme to co-create a remote working CPD standard and accredited training.

You are invited to learn more about our aims, our evidence and our proposed methodology and to find out how you can join our first workshop with Dr Jessica Taylor on January 25th, 2021.

Our initiative is supported by Rethink Ireland, through the Innovate Together Fund, a collaboration between Rethink Ireland and the Department of Rural and Community Development. The Fund supports charities’ innovative responses to the Covid-19 crisis that will provide lasting change.

Further information on how you can register for the on-line launch will follow.
