Presented by Jessica Mindlin from the Victims Rights Law Center, this webinar will offer education and practical solutions to clinicians who are challenged by adolescent issues. At the end of the event, attendees will be able to:

Know where to look for the laws that govern minors' sexual assault-related care and rights in your jurisdiction
Identify 3 or more of the ways in which the rights of minor sexual assault victims differ from the rights of adult survivors
Distinguish between what health care providers must, may and may not disclose about their minor patients' when subject to mandatory reporting laws and
Better acess state and national resources addressing care to minor sexual assault victims

The National Protocol fof Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations of Adults and Adolescents encourages a victim centered approach to caring for patients who have experienced sexual violence. Adolescent patients can present challenging legal issues for SANES and other providers who need to know whether (and when) a minor's care is confidential, who may consent to a minor patient's care, and other age-specific victim issues. Don't Miss your opportunity to participate in this webinar on Adolesent Issues: Consent, Confidentiality and Other Considerations. This SAFEta Source webinar is presented as a part of the SAFE Technical Assistance Project. This project is a cooperative agreement between the Office on Violence Against Women and the International Association of Forensic Nurses.

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.
