Instructors: Linda Ledray & Shara Moscinski

This training is intended primarily for sexual assault advocates, counselors, volunteers, or staff at rape crisis centers. However, nurses, including sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs), physicians, law enforcement officers, and mental health practitioners who assist sexual assault victims may also benefit from this training. With a focus on crisis intervention rather than long-term counseling, this training helps you deepen your understanding of the problem of sexual assault and the major roles of an advocate/counselor. Through case studies, role-playing, and other interactive exercises, participants will gain real-world skills to assist sexual assault victims effectively and sensitively. Participants will:

  • Examine the physical and emotional impact of sexual assault.
  • Learn how to respond to a crisis call reporting recent sexual assault.
  • Develop a "toolkit" of crisis intervention techniques to support recovery from sexual assault.
  • Learn to identify possible cases of drug-facilitated sexual assault.
  • Formulate a personalized self-care plan to prevent burnout.

Description: 

For more than a decade, NIJ’s annual conference has brought together criminal justice scholars, policymakers, and practitioners at the local, state and federal levels to share the most recent findings from research and technology.

The conference showcases what works, what doesn't work and what the research shows as promising. It puts a heavy emphasis on the benefits to researchers and practitioners who work together to create effective evidence-based policies and practices. The DNA Grantees Workshop, formerly a separate event, is now an integral part of the NIJ Conference. Combining the former DNA Grantees Workshop with the NIJ Conference allows us to feature innovations in forensic sciences and related policy and resource issues.

Who Should Attend

Researchers interested in criminal justice
Policymakers responsible for shaping public safety or social services
Practitioners in criminal justice interested in technology and DNA
Students interested in criminal justice issues
