One of the great challenges of rural sexual assault advocacy work is finding appropriate and compassionate medical care for sexual violence survivors. We have such limited healthcare resources in our rural communities. In this 90-minute webinar, Cat Fribley and Kris Bein will help OVW Rural Grantees explore new strategies and tap into new resources for comprehensive sexual violence medical advocacy. We will discuss questions such as:

  • What if our community doesn’t have a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner?
  • What if our community hospital is closing?
  • How can we help survivors access long-term healthcare, not just emergency care?

Holistic healing is a broad term that encompasses many non-traditional therapeutic practices, such as equine therapy, movement and yoga, horticultural therapy, and Somatic Experiencing. For too long, these methods have been a well-kept secret. Now, more and more of us in the anti-violence field are recognizing the benefits of using alternative healing modalities with sexual violence survivors. This 90-minute webinar will introduce OVW Rural Grantees to non-traditional support group and counseling services through the practice experience of three experts from the field. Shamecca Bryant, Emily Tofte, and Corinne Sanchez will discuss their philosophy on using holistic healing methods with survivors of sexual violence. Participants will learn ways to integrate these practices into their rural dual/multi-service agencies with support from board, staff and community members

Some survivors of sexual assault struggle with substance abuse. It’s hard to know how we advocates can help them, especially in rural communities that might not have a lot of resources for survivors or for folks with chemical dependency. Eric Stiles, Rural Projects Specialist at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, will guide us through the addiction issues to consider in our advocacy. In this 90-minute webinar, we will learn about a model for a peer-led support group for survivors who struggle with addiction.

Canada’s population is becoming increasingly diverse. However, the provision of culturally responsive services is still a challenge to our society. In particular, community services for partner violence and sexual assault in are insensitive and inadequate for certain groups of people. Individuals from various racial, ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds, different age groups and sexual orientation, continue to express their concerns of having limited access to culturally relevant services. What do service providers need to do to work effectively with diverse people in diverse environments?This webinar will highlight the services provided by the Diversity Outreach and Court Support Program at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, followed by a presentation on the complexity of working with people from diverse cultural background with diverse worldviews and perspectives. The webinar will then explore various strategies that allow service providers to apply a multicultural worldview that responds to increasingly complex environments. It will include a segment on community development principles, relationship building, and learning from the wisdom and lived experiences of the people.

This fast-paced webinar is designed to assist victim service providers in better serving transgender survivors of sexual assault and other forms of violence.  Many providers are committed to serving transgender clients, but seek additional information in order to provide more competent and sensitive services.  This webinar will primarily focus on basic transgender concepts, but will include references and examples specific to victim service providers.  The components covered will include:  1) discussing the diversity under the "transgender umbrella;" 2) exploring social, medical, legal, and other options transgender people may pursue;  3) stimulating thought about which components of a transgender person's life might (or might not be) relevant to the roles crime victim professionals play; and 4) disseminating resources to support transgender crime victims and the professionals who serve them.  Pre-webinar worksheets will help guide participants during the webinar.  Ample time for questions and answers will help solidify materials learned.Objectives:1. Describe the terms paradox and its relevance to working with transgender victims of crime.2.Identify at least three components of being transgender that they do NOT need to ask of a transgender victim in order to properly serve the victim (within their specific professional role)3.Identify at least two questions they need to ask of any transgender victim of crime.4.Be able to articulate at least one way people may respond when they are asked to choose an identity box that doesn't fit them.

Description: 

The abuse of older adults is a common problem in our society, but rarely discussed. This is particularly challenging because victims/survivors of elder abuse are often an invisible population across cultures, gender, immigration status, etc. In this 30 minutes session, presenters will discuss the specific and unique needs of Latin@ victims of elder abuse as this group is especially underrepresented in research and practice. Best approaches for bridging this gap as well as examples of successful collaborations to address this problem will be highlighted.What is BlogTalkRadio?

Description: 

The history of virginity throughout the ages is explored, from bizarre medieval “virginity checks” to current surgical procedures for “revirgination”. This presentation is suited for anyone who has ever questioned the history of virginity, why we believe what we believe and how these “truths” ultimately shape the course of child sexual abuse investigations. The longstanding myths surrounding virginity are challenged and information is provided to help the learner build a strong case even when the medical examination is normal.
