Description: 

Comprehensive prevention practices must include culturally competent components. Preventionists do not need to be experts on these beliefs, but must have a foundational understanding of the intersections of child sexual abuse, cultural norms, and societal pressures, to create community centered programing. In this web conference, we will highlight Indigenous communities and the work community members are doing to end child sexual abuse.
 
This web conference is a part of PreventConnect and Ms. Foundation for Women's third year of the #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series.

Description: 

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is supporting three national organizations – the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP) – to partner on a novel initiative to provide training and technical assistance to enhance probation responses to cases involving sexual assault.  This project aims to promote well-informed, victim-centered probation responses within the context of a comprehensive approach to sex offender management through on-site training, technical assistance, written resources, and webinars.

Please join us for the first in a series of webinars to be delivered under this national initiative. During this webinar, presenters will:

  • Provide an overview of this project and the resources it can offer to the field; 
  • Highlight the importance of victim-centeredness as an underlying tenet of sex offender management efforts, including probation practices; 
  • Summarize findings from a national needs assessment of representatives from the victim advocacy and probation/parole supervision communities regarding shared goals, current practice trends and collaborations, and decision points that have implications for enhancing victim-centered probation responses; and 
  • Offer examples of ways in which victim-centered sex offender supervision practices are being implemented.  

Anticipated presenters for this session will be:

  • Karen Baker, Executive Director, National Sexual Violence Resource Center
  • Dr. Kurt Bumby, Project Director, Center for Sex Offender Management
  • Carl Wicklund, Executive Director, American Probation and Parole Association

Registration is required to participate in this webinar. The webinar will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. EST; please plan to join approximately 10 minutes early to ensure your computer’s compatibility.  For inquiries regarding this webinar, please contact Stevyn Fogg at sfogg@cepp.com.
