NEW! Let's Talk About Sex Virtual Training
When: December 3, 10:00 am -1:30 pm via Zoom
Join us for an introductory level training designed to teach clinicians the basics of talking about sex and intimacy with clients. This training provides the foundational knowledge necessary to work with clients on issues related to sex, intimacy after sexual trauma, sexual identity, and gender identity. Topics include pleasure inclusivity, queer sex and identities, non-monogamy, and kink. Through group discussion and peer exchange, participants will receive the practical skills needed to navigate professional boundaries and encourage authentic conversations about clients' sexual questions and concerns. This training will be presented by Erica Hungerford, MS.
Sliding scale pricing is available. 3 LCPC/LCSW CEUs available.

Resilience is looking for our next class of volunteers to train with us this winter. We rely on volunteers to be able to ensure survivors are supported in hospitals all over the city. Medical advocates are the people who respond to the page from the hospital emergency room—the caring strangers who arrive to hold an unsteady hand, decipher medical and legal terminology, and filter through countless forms and paperwork, all to support survivors on their healing journey. Now more than ever we need volunteers to continue showing up for survivors. Volunteer medical advocates complete 60 hours of virtual training before signing up to be on-call to hospitals throughout the Chicago area.
Our next volunteer training will be held in winter 2022. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Know someone who might be interested? Forward this email to them! Learn more here and apply below!
