This will be a train-the-facilitator/presenter session for bilingual advocates who would like to present on this issue to Spanish-speaking communities.While some children may be fortunate enough to attend a summer camp or program, many more will spend their vacation from school home alone, and unsupervised for many hours. This webinar will offer basic outreach points in Spanish that may be shared with local parent and community groups to inform them about the risks of child sexual victimization, active bystander behavior, and prevention.

This Grand Rounds session from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will explore intimate partner violence (IPV), a serious, preventable public health problem that affects millions of Americans. The goal for public health is to recognize and prevent IPV. Topics include the following: "Societal Burden of IPV and Public Health's Relevance in Prevention"; "The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey"; "A State's Perspective on IPV Prevention"; and "National Opportunities for Preventing IPV." This session of Grand Rounds will explore prevention efforts aimed at reducing the occurrence of intimate partner violence through the promotion of healthy, respectful, nonviolent relationships. These prevention efforts must address change at the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels. Although not focused on campus-based IPV, this event may be of interest to campus violence prevention professionals.

Survivors of sexual violence often have immediate and ongoing healthcare needs after an assault.  This can play a central role in a survivors' healing and recovery from the violence they have experienced.  We know that youth are at risk to experience sexual violence, and that they too will need access to these supportive healthcare services.  This webinar will explore sexual assault advocacy and healthcare access for youth ages 13-18.  At what age can a teen consent to healthcare services?  Is that information confidential?  What is the advocate's role?  these are the questions and concerns we will dig into!This webinar is for sexual assault advocates who are interested in: learning more about teen consent and confidentiality in the healthcare setting; gaining new tools and resources for working with medical providers; and discussing ways to enhance support services to teen survivors.

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.
