    Hi, Leanne! I just responded to your message in an email. In case you didn’t get it though, your best bet is to ask for the child & adolescent intake worker at our business line (780 423 4102). Thanks for getting in touch!

    I am an RSW interested in obtaining employment with your organization. I have 25 years of experience, ten of which has been working exclusively with sexual abuse victims and their families. I would appreciate it if you could provide me any information that would assist me in attaining my goal of employment.

    Thanks,

    Linda

      Depending on what you are looking for we have a few options.

      Our Public Education department does educational presentations and workshops on topics like sexual assault, healthy relationships, etc. In the future, we plan to hold education sessions at our centre that would be open to anyone. However, right now we typically go out to organizations, community groups, schools, etc and do presentations there. If you are interested in booking a presentation, you can e-mail us at publiced@sace.ab.ca.

      Our Counselling department offers group counselling. If you are interested in something like that, you can call our business line at 780 423-4102.

    Hi. I’ve always wanted to work with women who gave been assaulted, abused, etc as it is very near and dear to my heart. I don’t know where to start. I had a friend suggest to get in touch with shelters, etc because you might be able to point me in the right direction. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
