OSARCC launches new therapeutic web network


OSARCC is delighted to announce a new online forum for professionals and those impacted by sexual harm.

The therapeutic web network will run monthly webinars throughout 2024 on a variety of topics, including diversity, trauma and intersectionality. The programme has been designed by OSARCC’s Counselling and Groups Manager, Naseem Sarbatta-Walia. Each session will be led by OSARCC’s specialist therapy team and attended by expert guest speakers from both local and national agencies.

Naseem says: “The therapeutic web network is a wonderful opportunity to convene survivors and professionals in Oxfordshire and elsewhere in the UK. Each webinar will help us share learnings, gain new insights and challenge our practice to ensure it best meets the needs of those impacted by sexual violence. This is a hugely exciting way to start the New Year and I am looking forward to working collaboratively on these important topics.”
