Our values

The following values guide our approach to service delivery, outreach and prevention efforts:

  • Survivor-centred. We support survivors in making decisions they identify as the right choices for their individual needs.
  • Feminist. We believe that preventing sexual violence and harassment begins with critically exploring gender expectations, stereotypes and labels.
  • Intersectional. To prevent sexual violence and harassment, we need to explore power imbalances based on racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and other interrelated expectations and stereotypes.

Services

The Sexual Assault Resource Centre offers support services and prevention programming to all Concordia students, staff and faculty. These include:

  • Crisis intervention and SART response in urgent and complex cases
  • Trauma informed and survivor-centred individual psychotherapy
  • Referral and/or accompaniment to on-and off-campus resources
  • Peer support and psycho-educational groups at our drop-in space
  • Workshops and training on sexual violence prevention and response

Lindsay Faul, Counsellor


Lindsay provides support, counseling, accompaniment and referral to Concordia students, staff and faculty impacted by sexual violence at any point in their lives. Lindsay’s approach is trauma-informed, survivor-centered, anti-oppressive, and non-judgmental. She holds a masters’ degree in Social Work from McGill University and has over 10 years of experience working in the field. 

Lindsay offers up to 12 sessions of support using Cognitive Processing Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy approaches. Sessions focus on exploring the memory of the traumatic event(s) and its meaning.
