Disclosure Training

June 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dealing with Disclosures of Sexual Abuse

Online Training Workshop

90% of sexual abuse incidents are not reported to the police.  There is a good possibility that in your day to day work, building relationships with clients, you may hear a disclosure of sexual abuse.  This short introductory online training workshop is for anyone who may hear a disclosure of rape, previous sexual abuse or current sexual harm from someone they are supporting or working with.

This training workshop is suitable for those working with people aged 16 years or over and it is designed to give a practical overview of how to respond appropriately.

This interactive online training workshop will cover:

  • Why individuals find it difficult to speak about sexual abuse
  • Hearing a disclosure for the first time
  • Best practice- How to effectively respond to disclosure
  • Context of the disclosure
  • What do we mean by first disclosure?
  • Signposting & referral
  • Self care after hearing a disclosure


This is an interactive online training workshop, and will be hosted via zoom, partner agencies can book on to our training course via Barnsley Council’s Personal Online Development System. – If this is not accessible to you please look out for future training hosted by BSARCS. 

At least 24 hours prior to the training you will receive the zoom id and password for the training session.
