Community education and public awareness about trauma and violence is at the core of the mission of Reach. Topics for these education programs concentrate on healing and treatment for trauma; sexual assault, harassment and violence; domestic abuse; personal safety; coercion; sexting; cyberbullying; establishing boundaries; assertiveness skills and more.
Reach Counseling and Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs are partnering to bring together their staffs for a two-day workshop to address building diversity and a racially just culture within their organizations and throughout the Fox valley. The goal is the elimination of institutional racism and other forms of oppression through education. “Participating agencies will be given tools to develop an anti-racist culture within their organization. Agencies will be better equipped to support and affirm the people they serve.” said Lyn Beyer, Executive Director of Reach Counseling.
Supervisors, advocates, therapists and support staff from the two agencies will attend:
The workshops will be held in Appleton on Thursday, June 22 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and Friday, June 23 from 8:30 am to 3pm.
April 11 & 12, 2017
