Sexual Violence Awareness Month: Survivor Support - Creating the scaffolding for ongoing healing
People who identify as survivors already have the significant skills and courage to overcome challenges in their lives. They have proven this to themselves and others by surviving and accomplishing all they have – even when they have walked alone. As human beings, however, we are stronger in life when we walk together and survivor supporters play a vital role in how survivors can continue to move from surviving to thriving.
Join us for this exclusive event as we acknowledge Sexual Violence Awareness Month and explore what survivor support means to each and every one of us. Caroline Brunne will present a keynote, covering the key elements required for survivors to gain ongoing support from those around them as they move with their trauma and transform beyond it. Sharing her lived experience, Caroline identifies what survivor support has looked like for her and how she has seen it modelled successfully for survivors within her community. This keynote is a vulnerable and heartening presentation suited to both survivors and their supporters as we discuss supporting survivors through empathy and human connection.
In addition to the keynote, guests will enjoy afternoon tea and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as the opportunity to meet other guests who are passionate about ending sexual violence in our community.
Caroline will also have copies of her memoir, More Than One Thing Can Be True available for purchase at the event.
We look forward to seeing you there!
