Description: 

Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are associated with costly and deleterious health and social problems, such as homelessness. Restorative Integral Support (RIS), a new practice framework, combines knowledge of trauma, resilience, and recovery in facilitating approaches that serve the whole person in public policy, program design and delivery, and community development.This webinar will provide participants with an understanding of how to help at-risk individuals and families start RISing out of adversity and trauma through the mobilization of resilience and recovery. By utilizing the RIS framework in policy and practice, ACE-informed programs can be developed by bringing together best practices that address ACEs or ACE-related consequences, as well as other trauma, within intentionally developed healthy social networks.

Description: 

This JDI webinar will introduce advocates to exciting new opportunities to help incarcerated youth who have been sexually abused. Children and adolescents in detention suffer sexual abuse and harassment at alarming rates, and the effects of this abuse can last a lifetime. That's the bad news. The good news is that the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards offer guidance for corrections facilities and pave the way for rape crisis counselors and other advocates who care about children to provide life-saving help to this underserved population

During the webinar, experts in the fields of sexual abuse and youth detention will discuss the range of services addressed in the PREA standards. Presenters will review some of the challenges of providing care to this population, and to working in detention settings more broadly. Attendees will learn ways to adapt crisis interventions to these settings, as well as other strategies to offer the community standard of care to youth detainees. This webinar will feature advocates who have worked in youth facilities and survivors who have experienced this abuse.

Description: 

Since the 2003 passage of the Prison Rape Elimination Act, the issue of sexual abuse behind bars has gained attention among many corrections and government officials, and some community-based victim advocates and medical professionals. However, too often victims of sexual abuse in detention still face extreme barriers in receiving proper medical, crisis intervention, and mental health services. This webinar will address the unique dynamics of sexual abuse in detention and how medical professionals, victim advocates and community-based Sexual Assault Response Teams can address teh unique needs of incarcerated victims. The webinar will include information about the prevalence of sexual abuse in both adult and juvenile facilities, barriers to victims' recovery, best practices for providing crisis intervention and counseling to victims, and the importance of prison-based SARTs.
