First Responder to Sexual Violence Training


This course offers an Indigenous-focused, trauma-informed and mindfulness-based approach to baseline skills on responding to sexual violence disclosures.

Participants will learn to:
– Understand Indigenous culturally relevant practices
– How multiple identities, social locations and historical contexts inform responses to sexual violence disclosures
– How self-knowledge and self-care are mandatory for the responder.

Open to Okanagan Nation Members, Community Members and/or Okanagan Nation front-line wellness and health staff who are working with people harmed by sexual violence.

Space is limited to 12 spots – so all participants must register.

*Trainees can expect up to 1 hour of homework each day, for three days. Homework may include reading, watching videos, reflective writing (journaling), and self-care activities.
