Victims of crime, including victims of sexual assault are in need of a network of support services and interventions, of which psychotherapy treatment is one. As a clinician providing treatment to this population, it is critical to have not only the psychotherapy treatment skills, but also the understanding of the wider biopsychosocial needs and available resources for these individuals. This program will offer the opportunity to gain an awareness of both the clinical needs but also the awareness of and importance of collaboration with those community resources that will provide important concrete services that will benefit the client and facilitate the treatment process.
