— Meet Requirements
CCASA’s Sexual Assault Advocate Training Institute (SAATI) provides training hours necessary to meet statutory requirements for advocate privilege. SAATI is designed for staff at community- and campus-based sexual and domestic violence advocacy programs. It is also appropriate for staff at law enforcement and district attorney’s victim assistance programs.

— Knowledge & Skills
SAATI will increase participants’ knowledge and skills to support survivors of sexual assault as well as provide participants with information and tools to bring back to their agency to train other staff and volunteers.
SAATI covers core topics, including:
Sexual assault dynamics and effects
Culturally responsive crisis intervention and advocacy
Criminal justice options
Civil legal options
*We recommend the remaining 4 hours include agency- and community-specific information, such as agency policies and procedures, community resources, coordinated community response, etc.
