Awareness Trainings

Josephine A. Lauren, the co-founder and community organizer of Incest AWARE, guides training and consultations to increase incest awareness and ensure that all anti-incest content represents the complexities and sensitivities of the issue. Reach out to Jo. for more information.

The Incest Story Training

Learn about the consequences of incest and how to support survivors. Incest abuse remains a taboo topic in our society. This leaves children vulnerable to repeated abuse and survivors isolated in their recovery process. It's time that parents and professionals, communities and cultures, understand the impacts of incest abuse. Together, we can prevent incest, introduce safe methods of intervention, compensate survivors during recovery, and ensure a justice process that ends recidivism.

In this training, you and your team will learn:

  • The causes and consequences of incest abuse.

  • The institutional betrayal that leaves survivors isolated.

  • The intersectional complexities of incest abuse when coupled with racism, sexism, ableism, sizeism, homophobia, transphobia, and xenophobia.

  • Community support models that identify victims and place them in a network of support.

  • An integrated, long-term model of recovery that addresses the neurological, physiological, psychological, relational, economic, and spiritual impacts of incest.

  • Systemic solutions that ensure prevention, intervention, recovery, and justice.

  • Individual answers to support survivors throughout their healing processes.​

Incest Content Consultation

Represent the complexity of incest abuse with guidance from survivors. Incest abuse is a horrible reality for so many. It's important that the issue is represented authentically and accurately in publications and productions to help educate others, gather support to end incest, and help survivors.

Work with Jo. to ensure your publication or production:

  • Shares the complexity of incest abuse without sensationalizing or reducing the narrative.

  • Stays survivor-centered while representing both the personal and political sides of the issue.

  • Sets the issue alongside the intersections of other social justice problems like racism, ableism, sexism, sizeism, homophobia, transphobia, and xenophobia.

  • Includes the causes and consequences of incest to inspire social empathy.
