In this webinar, presenters from three innovative clinics serving military and veteran families will discuss practices they have designed and adapted to create a comfortable environment their clients that minimizes barriers to engagement in treatment.  The speakers will share examples of how organizations can incorporate military-informed procedures and practices, beginning with asking about service member status and affiliations.  They will present service members' viewpoints about their family needs and perspectives as gathered through focus groups with service members and their families and discuss ways to increase engagement and participation in services through effective community outreach and partnerships with military and civilian systems serving military and veteran families.

Description: 

Prosecutorial effectiveness is commonly measured by conviction rates, largely because they are readily available. But, are conviction rates an accurate measure of success? For difficult cases, like sexual assaults, conviction rates do not capture the quality of the prosecution strategies or the relative difficulty of the cases taken forward. Experienced prosecutors know they won’t win every case. In fact, some would argue that if you aren’t losing any cases, you aren’t trying the right ones. With a singular focus on high conviction rates, far too many cases go unprosecuted because of fears that the cases won’t be won, which results in sex offenders escaping justice and communities and victims being less safe. So, how can success in sexual assault prosecution be measured, if not by conviction rates? Is there a better way of measuring the effectiveness of practices in these cases that would allow us to improve and sustain them?This presentation will discuss promising sexual assault prosecution strategies as well as measuring effectiveness in a way that does not rely solely upon conviction rates. The presenters will discuss other, more meaningful performance measures, and will describe how they can be used to more accurately measure and sustain effective prosecution practices.Allied justice system professionals including but not limited to prosecutors, law enforcement officers, community-based service providers, and judges are encouraged to register for this webinar.

Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM PDT

This webinar will take up the question of how we can inspire larger circles of men to become involved in taking a stance against violence. The presenters will integrate recent research findings with theory and practical experience implementing men’s anti-violence programs to engage participants in dialog about strategies for reaching and engaging a broad spectrum of men.

Participants will:
• Gain familiarity with research findings regarding the factors that precipitate men’s anti-violence involvement
• Learn about a framework for thinking about men’s involvement on a continuum of readiness and awareness
• Gain familiarity with strategies for engaging men at different points on the readiness continuum

Description: 

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.
