NJCASA’s Training Institute is informed by national trends in the prevention of and response to sexual violence, as well as strengths and needs of professionals in New Jersey. We provide in-person and web-based trainings to Sexual Violence Programs and allied professionals committed to creating safer communities for all.

Who We Work With
The Training Institute serves members from local sexual violence centers, allied professionals in public and mental health, law enforcement, preventionists, and the larger public. Our trainings bring communities a better understanding of the dynamics of sexual assault, which results in improved response to survivors and increased accountability to perpetrators.
