Our Trainings

Our experts are available to the community. We recognize that these issues often affect individuals differently based on their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, class, and more. All of our presentations are age and culturally appropriate, gender neutral and LGBTQIA inclusive.
Speakers are available during the week, in the evenings, and on the weekend. We recommend that you schedule as far in advance as possible. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred date and time.

Workplace Presentations:

These sessions are appropriate for any kind of company or organization. Survivors often are not aware of help that is available in their community. We always provide information about TurnAround support services and other important resources for survivors. Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Child Sexual Abuse
  • Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence
  • Sexual Assault
  • Human Trafficking in Maryland
  • Workplace Sexual Harassment

Educational Programs for Children and Youth:

All our educational sessions for children and youth are free. We offer these sessions during school and at after-school meetings. We recommend limiting presentations for K-12 audiences to no more than 10 students at a time. We often spend several days at a school to meet with as many groups as possible.
