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.
Speak Volumes Without Ever Uttering a Word: How the Use of Pronouns in Your Communications Opens Doors to More Than the LGBTQ+ Community
When: Tuesday, June 28th, 2022 | 10-11:30AM EST
Where: Virtual (zoom)
Law Enforcement CEU – 1.5 hrs. | Behavioral Health CEU – 1.5 hrs.
For decades we in law enforcement have conveyed messages without ever saying a word. The way we dress, the way we stand, the design on our patrol cars, our unique police mannerisms and facial expressions have sent signals to our communities. We’ve been taught that the signals we are sending are ones of, integrity, confidence, competency, courage, strength, accountability, honor, and approachability. These signals are intended to convey to the public that we are the “shining knight” here to protect and save you. However, for many in society, the starched shirts, shiny shoes, uniformed patrol cars, unique mannerisms and facial expressions send a message of being narrow minded, ridged, unapproachable, and incompetent.
