Description: 

It is increasingly acknowledged that efforts to promote victim and community safety and prevent sexual victimization can be enhanced when sexual assault victim advocates and sex offender management professionals work together toward a shared vision.  Recognizing this potential, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is supporting four national organizations – the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), and the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) – to partner on a novel initiative to support collaboration between sexual assault victim advocates and sex offender management professionals. This support will take the form of 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. In this webinar, the presenters will provide an overview of the project and highlight the findings of needs assessments completed by national samples of representatives from the victim advocacy and sex offender treatment communities. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to: 

  • Learn about perspectives on collaboration between these stakeholder groups;
  • Develop an understanding about current trends and practices;
  • Hear factors that support or create barriers to collaboration;
  • Share promising strategies they have learned and used in the field; and
  • Learn about project resources and next steps.

Sexual assault advocates based in rural communities are often one of the only resources in the area who have any knowledge about sexual assault. For this reason it often becomes necessary for rural sexual assault advocates to provide advocacy in a broad range of settings.  This webinar will outline comprehensive services and provide solutions on how to address the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of rural sexual assault survivors.

Description: 

Join us for an interactive webinar outlining how agencies can adopt the empowerment model we use with survivors to use for ourselves. Advocates working at rural dual/multi-service agencies are often more isolated from fellow staff members, feel overextended, and often don’t have as much support as they would like, all of which can take a toll on their emotional wellbeing. This webinar will address issues of self-care, organizational trauma, and staff empowerment with a focus on positivity and creating longevity within this work. Register.
