Support your staff and student leaders to handle disclosures of sexual violence in line with best practice and institutional policy.
Developed in collaboration with expert advisors, authors, and an expert panel of academics and practitioners, the new edition of Responding to Disclosures of Sexual Violence ensures university staff and student leaders are equipped with the practical knowledge and skills needed to provide an effective and survivor centred first response, and signpost to potential sources of further support.
The new edition will be updated to reflect a broader focus on gender-based violence. New content covering staff-to-student and peer-to-peer misconduct will be added and coverage of image-based abuse will be expanded, including how to recognise it, and provide support to individuals experiencing it. The overall approach of the programme will be updated to be more trauma-informed, shifting the emphasis from reporting, to responding and providing support.
