Our Safe Haven: Online Support Sessions for Professionals Working with Individuals Who Have Sexually Abused or Have Survived Abuse

Join Safer Society for our new, one-hour support group sessions for professionals working with individuals who have sexually abused.

The work you do is difficult. These live online sessions will provide a safe, non-threatening space for professionals like you to discuss the challenges you face in your work and connect with others who share similar experiences. Led by David Prescott, a mental health practitioner with four decades of experience, these online sessions will provide you with a rich, meaningful experience in a supportive environment.

In each session, we will discuss topics important to those attending, for example:

  • Finding the “new normal” after the pandemic
  • Working with challenging cases (and colleagues!)
  • Interacting with clients’ families
  • Establishing a work/life balance, staying healthy, and self-care
  • Recognizing and managing symptoms of burnout
  • How to get support when something goes wrong (for example, probation violations)
  • Working with those who have survived abuse as well as those who’ve perpetrated it

To ensure that each session is workable, we will limit the number of attendees. Registration for each session will, therefore, be on a first-come-first-served basis. We are charging a non-refundable fee of $8.00 to reserve your spot. 

Each session will run from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm EDT.

The first three sessions have been scheduled for:

1.     May 10, 2023

2.     May 26, 2023

3.     June 12, 2023

Because spots are limited, we are asking that you please only register for one of the three sessions.  

Your personal privacy is our highest priority. These sessions will be recorded for liability purposes only. The recordings will not be shared with attendees or distributed outside of Safer Society Foundation.

Like any group discussion, everyone will have a responsibility to keep it a safe, professional, and confidential space. We will adhere to the codes of ethics of our professions, mandatory laws, and other professional standards. The Safe Haven series is intended to be supportive; not formal supervision, consultation, or legal advice.
