Prevention starts with education.
ICESAHT is committed to ending sexual assault and human trafficking in Indiana, which means we must be committed to embracing all educational opportunities to enhance our skills and knowledge. ICESAHT facilitates an aggressive training schedule, which includes multiple methods of learning, from in-person to your at your workplace. The trainings cover a variety of topics that are evidence based, trauma informed, culturally competent, and victim centered.
Our goal is to provide thought-provoking, skill-building, and accessible learning opportunities that support advocacy, programming, strategic planning, capacity building, and education while preparing you to effectively serve survivors and your community. We continually assess trends in order to identify ways to address the needs and concerns of those we partner with. ICESAHT is committed to fostering comprehensive learning opportunities that will equip leaders to better their practices related to education and response to sexual violence and human trafficking.
Due to COVID-19 we are not holding any in-person trainings through the end of the year. All trainings will be held virtually.
