Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence provides training and technical assistance to individuals and communities who are seeking to increase their understanding of sexual violence and enhance their skills in supporting survivors of sexual violence. Many of these trainings are hosted in our newly renovated Training & Advocacy Center. Our workshops are centered on victims and survivors, informed by research, and based on best practices. The Alliance staff is invested in tailoring all training to meet the needs of our audiences; therefore, the length and content are developed to meet your specific needs. Trainings can range anywhere from one hour to multiple days in length. The Alliance is committed to providing training that meets the needs of communities working to support survivors and end sexual violence.Upcoming Trainings

As noted in PA 10-38: Licensure of Master and Clinical Social Work and NASW’s State of Connecticut Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Provider Policy, continuing education hours can only be awarded if an attendee successfully completes the entire training; therefore, full attendance in the entire training activity is required. Participants who arrive late, miss any portion of the training, or leave early will not be eligible for continuing education hours. Participants who successfully complete a CEU-eligible training will receive a certificate of completion stating the hours earned, the name of the participant, and the date and title of the training. CEU-eligible trainings may charge an additional fee during registration.
The Training & Advocacy Center is located at 98 Pitkin Street, East Hartford, CT 06108. When arriving for trainings, please enter through the 98 Pitkin Street entrance.
