The Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society and Avalon Sexual Assault Centre invite you to a three-hour workshop for lawyers working with sexual assault victims/survivors.
 
Given the sensitive nature of the material, some students may find the workshop challenging. As such, attendance is not mandatory. 
 
We acknowledge that triggers are often unpredictable and individually specific. A counsellor from Avalon Sexual Assault Centre will be available to debrief participants if needed.
 
We hope the workshop and information on sexual assault will be useful to you in assisting clients through the justice system. As this is a pilot session, your feedback will be welcomed and encouraged. 
 
 
Light dinner included. Attendance is free.
Please RSVP by Friday, October 17 to Lia Renaud, lrenaud@nsbs.org
