Meet UWaterloo’s Sexual Violence Response Coordinator to discuss her role on campus, Policy 42 (Prevention and Response to Sexual Violence), what is sexual violence, and how someone’s experience of sexual violence can be impacted in a variety of ways.
Amanda Cook brings over 10 years’ experience to the Sexual Violence Response Coordinator role, having worked with Peel Children’s Centre both as a Child Witness Specialist and a Child and Family Clinician with the Sexual Abuse Treatment Program. As a Child Witness Specialist Amanda assisted in supporting child and youth victims to testify in criminal court, and provided information and support in navigating the criminal justice system. In the role of Clinician, Amanda provided trauma informed treatment to both child and youth survivors of sexual trauma, as well as for youth who had sexually offended. Amanda has a BA in Sociology and a MA in Social Work, both from Wilfrid Laurier University.
W3 (Waterloo Women's Wednesdays) is a monthly gathering of woman-identified and non-binary grad students, post-docs, staff and faculty that (usually) meets on the last Wednesday of each month.
