& Workshops

ACAA offers a variety of educational presentations and training programs ranging from school-aged children to professionals, parents and caregivers. 


If there is another topic of interest, please inquire. ACAA can deliver custom training by request and can be present to offer resources or information in your community. 


This school-based Sexual Abuse Education program is for Kindergarten to Grade 6 to empower children and those in their lives to recognize their rights and ownership of their bodies, increase their understanding of empathy and consent, and to identify and enhance their support networks.


Intended for grades 7 - 12, this presentation is focused on building youth's capacity to recognize health in relationships, describe what consent is (and isn’t), and build skills to help someone who needs it, empowering youth with the skills and the will to take action against sexual violence.

Adult Education & Training

disclosures of sexual violence are more likely to reach out for help with healing, and to engage in other systems such as health or justice.

Responding to Child &

Youth Disclosures

Children will disclose to someone they trust and feel safe with, this can and does happen in a variety of settings. Learn to recognize childhood sexual abuse facts and myths, indicators and impacts, why it's important to appropriately respond to disclosure and what to do next (reporting options, referrals and support services). 

Responding to Adult Disclosures

Disclosing recent sexual assault or historical sexual abuse can be very difficult. Survivors may not know who to turn to, or what options are available to them. Learn how to appropriately respond, identify short & long term impacts, and how to refer to specialized support services and treatment in your area.
