Disclosure Referral Training, facilitated by the SU’s Advice Centre Manager
Thursday week 8 | 2-3pm | SUHQ Central Meeting Room

“CN: Sexual assault, domestic violence. Students are often the first people other students disclose to, whether it’s about mental health issues they’re facing, incidents of domestic violence, sexual assault, or any one of a number of other sensitive topics. Would you know where to refer someone following a disclosure? Do you worry you’d struggle to find the right words of support? This session seeks to equip you to to do just that. This event may be of particular interest to club & society exec members, particularly those in welfare officer and president positions.”
