Isabel Sexual Maltreatment Response Certification

  • Hillcrest Baptist Church 3838 Steck Avenue Austin, TX, 78759 United States (map)

If someone tells you they were sexually maltreated, do you know what to say? Learn how to help without rescuing in this interactive workshop that equips leaders to respond to and discuss sexual maltreatment. Facilitator and trainer Anna Westbrook will teach participants to transition out of a victim, persecutor or rescuer mindset by blending Stephen Karpman's Drama Triangle and Cannon’s Trauma Response Theory with an analysis of her original work Isabel & The Runaway Train (the grassroots theatre project that took Austin by storm in July 2018). Why does it work? Trauma leads to drama. And consequently, intentionally leveraged drama can bring healing to survivors of traumatic events.

Later Event: January 31
Screening of Isabel & The Runaway Train
