Sexual Assault Resource Centre Resources

The Sexual Assault Resource Centre (SARC) is the emergency sexual assault (rape crisis) service for Perth, Western Australia.  It provide quality, evidence based education and training opportunities on issues related to sexual assault and sexual abuse to professional workers, students and volunteers.  It also aims to increase the knowledge and understanding of workers in WA, about sexual assault, sexual abuse and the impact of trauma as well as to develop culturally appropriate resources to support people who have experienced sexual assault or sexual abuse and workers who work with survivors.


Protective behaviours resources

'When Daddy Hits the Table' and 'When Mummy shouts' are Aboriginal stories, written as a pair, to acknowledge that both parents can display angry behaviour. The story is about children living with a parent who is angry, a teacher at the school noticing that something is wrong at home and the wider family being there to listen and offer support. The books can be ordered using the link above.


Protective Behaviours offer a comprehensive range of resources open to the community providing an extensive array of leaning materials including storybooks, lesson plan workbooks, cd-roms activity sheets, puppetry and visual learning aids.

These resources are available to service providers, parents and carers.
