Description: 

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.

Description: 

In a sea of toxic media messages, envisioning development of healthy attitudes about sex is no easy task. Join expert Dr. Sharon Lamb in Hardy Girls Healthy Women's next webinar to learn what we, as caring adults in girls' lives, can do to combat unhealthy messages!

Dr. Sharon Lamb has published widely in the fields of moral development, abuse and victimization, sexual development , psychotherapy with children and adolescents, the sexualization of girls, and media and marketing impact on the development of girls and boys. She served on the APA Task Force on the Sexualization of Girls, which found that sexualization in media leads to increased eating disorders, increased depression, and lower self-esteem among girls.

During this webinar, she'll explore alternatives to the narrow versions of sexuality sold to our youth by the media. How do we encourage girls' to use their voices, see themselves as subjects rather than objects, value their own pleasure, and grow at their own pace?

Elder abuse and neglect is a growing issue as America ages. There are several physical markers which help to identify elder mistreatment. Some of these include physical conditions such as documented but untreated injuries, inconsistencies between the reported time of death and condition of the body, and signs of malnutrition and dehydration.

This webinar is the second in a two-part series on elder abuse, sponsored by the Government Innovators Network and the National Institute of Justice (the first webinar examined incidence and prevalence).

Listen to experts discuss what they know about bruising as well as the important role of forensic information and technology in effectively investigating cases of elder abuse and neglect. Ample time will be allocated for audience Q&A.

What every health and social service provider needs to know about the importance of providing trauma-informed services to women and girls across the lifespan.
The impact of violence, abuse, neglect, disaster, war, and other harmful experiences continues long after the traumatic event has ended. Exposure to trauma is a pervasive issue that has significantly impacted the health and well-being of millions of Americans and nearly everyone seeking services in the public health and social services systems. Understanding how trauma affects the emotional, behavioral, cognitive, social, and physical functioning of the people we care for can improve our services.
