Welcome to the June 2024 Virtual Sexual Assault Therapy Core Training!

This 23-hour, two section training will satisfy the Washington State Department of Commerce, Office of Crime Victims Therapist Core mandatory training requirements for therapists treating victims of sexual violence, assault, and abuse. It will also satisfy OCVA Initial Training Requirements for Therapists.

The training provides both a philosophical base, centered on survivor empowerment, as well as a clinical base, enhancing therapists’ ability to provide comprehensive therapy services to sexual assault survivors.

This training event will provide the same information and credentials previously provided by the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs (WCSAP) Therapist Core.

Register to begin! Our staff will connect you with the self-paced first section of training, to be counted as 3.5 hours toward your Therapist Core certification. This portion must be completed in order to gain admission to the second section.

On June 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, and 13, Rebuilding Hope will host the live second section of Therapist Core. Join Washington experts in therapeutic sexual assault survivors’ services alongside our staff for clinical and philosophical education specifically designed for therapists employed by OCVA-funded agencies across the state. This virtual event will take place over six half days and is designed to provide essential knowledge of the history of sexual assault and survivors’ services, the current landscape of legal interventions available to and experienced by Washington survivors, and care responsive to the needs of marginalized and historically excluded populations.

Each of the six days are scheduled to begin at 9:00am and to end at 12:30pm.

Therapist Core is available for all licensed therapists in Washington for a $225 fee. However, for our OCVA-funded colleagues receiving Statewide Impact grant funds, this training and certification are offered free of charge. If you have any questions, send them over to
