The T.A.M.A.R. Method – INTERACTIVE Training on Ministering to Victims of Sexual Trauma

July 30 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

How do you respond when someone discloses that they’ve been sexually abused?

Every 73 seconds, an American is sexually assaulted (RAINN, 2019). These are deep and lasting wounds that many people carry around in suffocating silence. The Samaritan Women is leveraging its expertise in trauma and abuse to equip the faithful to respond to the sexually wounded with compassion and wisdom. This virtual training is interactive with group activities and discussion.

This course will be delivered in three 2-hour Zoom calls. *All 3 sessions are recommended to experience the full training.
