The SVRI values the wellbeing of our delegates and recognises the emotional impact of listening and talking through difficult topics. This year, the Forum will offer a space for delegates who may need emotional support after engaging with presentations or through the process of presenting. This room also serves as a safe space to process any research presented at the Forum. Experienced counsellors from the Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust will be available to facilitate this process. It is open to anyone attending the conference, as well as translators, support staff, and conference presenters.
You can contact the counsellors via the conference helpdesk.
Please note: Information on preventing secondary trauma will be available inside your conference bag. All registered conference delegates will receive this information.
