If you are looking for a definition of sexual assault, please review this information.
Rape culture, rape myths, victim blaming… it’s a lot to wrap your head around. Take a crash course: Sexual Violence 101.
When someone tells you that they are a survivor of sexual violence, there are many ways to support them. We have some suggestions to help you deal with a disclosure so that the survivor feels supported and empowered. Alternately, you may want to take our First Responder to Sexual Assault course if you are a professional who often receives disclosures of sexual victimization.
Drugs, Alcohol, & Sexual Assault
Did you know that alcohol is the number one drug used by perpetrators of sexual assault? Learn about drugs, alcohol, and sexual assault—protect yourself.
Do you understand consent and its importance during sexual activity? If you don’t, you’re not alone. In 2018 the Canadian Women’s Foundation surveyed Canadians and found that only 1 in 3 Canadians understand what sexual consent means. Take a few minutes to educate yourself, because “non-consensual” sex doesn’t exist. Sex without consent is sexual assault.
Child Sexual Abuse
If you are worried that a child is being sexually abused, or a child has told you that they’ve been sexually abused, here’s what you need to know and do. Learn to spot grooming behaviours, a tactic used by sexual predators. As part of our public education programming, SSAIC offers a child sexual abuse prevention program designed for Grade 4 classrooms, which is presented each year from January – March in both the Saskatoon Public & Catholic school systems.
