Description: 

A 90-minute webinar presented by Philip McCabe, Health Educator at UMDNJ and leader of NJ Gay Health Initiative Project.

Sexual violence is any act (verbal and/or physical) which breaks a person’s trust and/or safety and is sexual in nature.Heterosexism and homo/trans phobia in our culture puts LGBTQ people at greater risk for sexual assault. It is common for perpetrators to use sexual violence as a way to punish and humiliate someone for being LGBTQ, and/or for sexual assault to be one type of violence that occurs during an anti-LGBTQ battering. Interpersonal violence can also occur between same sex domestic partners, former partners, other family members, friends, co workers and others known to the victim. Providers can benefit from understanding the difficulty for LGBTQ victims to receive services as well as what considerations can be beneficial for providing LGBTQ affirmative, trauma informed services. 

As a result of this webinar participants will:

*Analyze the prevalence and consequences of sexual violence as it pertains to LGBTQ individuals.

*Describe special considerations in working with victims of same-gender violence and also individuals who identify as LGBTQ and are victims of opposite gender sexual violence.

Participants will use GoToMeeting to join the webinar. After you register, you will receive an email with instructions for participating.

Description: 

This webinar on sexual violence behind bars will focus on the immigration detention system. Expert presenters will look at the unique vulnerabilities of immigrant detainees -- and the obstacles to getting help that they face. The session will also give an overview of the U.S.’s rapidly growing immigration detention system, covering its complex array of agencies and facilities and the pending Department of Homeland Security standards to eliminate the sexual abuse of detainees.  The webinar will also feature talks by a community advocate and a survivor of sexual abuse in immigration detention. These perspectives will help shed light on the specific needs of survivors of this abuse and the ways advocates can get them help.  Who Should Attend: This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers – rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators – though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to attend. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited. No Refuge Here is part of a series of webinars on providing services to survivors of sexual abuse in detention. The series is part of JDI’s National Sexual Violence in Detention Education and Resource Project, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. JDI is an international health and human rights organization that seeks to eliminate sexual violence in all forms of detention.
