Time: 8:00 AM


Have you ever witnessed a situation and been left with the thought “I wish I had said or done something”?

In the course of their workdays, physiotherapists may observe or experience sexual harassment (referred to as sexual misconduct if done by a health professional towards a patient).

Sexual harassment can be insidious and unsettling. In this presentation, the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton provides a primer on creating spaces free of sexual harassment and addressing dynamics that can lead to several types of harm.

Participants learned strategies for intervening in the moment, as well as a framework through which to contribute to more enduring initiatives.

The Public Education Team at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) works year-round to provide comprehensive, trauma-informed anti-sexual violence education while annually speaking to over 15,000 unique participants. The team has experience connecting with diverse audiences from youth in schools and community programs to a wide range of professionals and community organizations throughout Edmonton and beyond. All educators have extensive backgrounds in providing anti-sexual violence education, engaging the community to eradicate sexual violence, and supporting people who've been impacted by this form of abuse.

A link to the live session will be provided to participants on February 28th via the email address you provide in this form.

A recording of the session will be available until August 2024.
