Description: 

The goal of this training is to help victim advocates and other professionals who work with victims of crime build the skills necessary to recognize, intervene, and prevent stress, burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. Participants will learn information and skills related to:

-Sources and impact of stress and trauma.
-Indicators of compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma.
-Healthy coping.
-Developing resilience.
-Personal and agency care plans to minimize the risk of Compassion fatigue.

The training is designed for those who work in the field of victim services, as well as those in other fields who work with victims of violent crime. The training includes interactive exploration of self-care techniques, strategies for recognizing symptoms of compassion fatigue, and strategies managers can use to ensure balance and self-care for those they supervise.

This training is designed primarily for victim advocates who are volunteers or staff at victim services facilities. However, the broad range of information regarding compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma may also make the training useful for professional counselors, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and medical staff.

Description: 

"Paving a Rocky Road", is a metaphor to honor the history of Women's Movements which drive Men Against Violence (MAV) efforts around the country. The metaphor continues as Men Against Violence looks to the future of engaging larger numbers of people in our struggle to create social change around gender equity and violence against women. While men are certainly not “The” solution, this change cannot come without large numbers of men and women both working together. MAV can “pave the way” to gaining the support of larger numbers by removing barriers that traditionally keep men from engaging in a topic which touches us all.

This conference will broaden the ways the movement seeks to engage those who identify as male in ways that do not continue to marginalize across gender, sexual orientation, race, class, etc while challenging us all to explore the interesectionality of oppressions and violence. Specific topics include explorations of MAV program creation and success, collaboration with communities of faith, and developing the social justice leadership of tomorrow.

Description: 

Created by Pittsburgh Action Against Rape and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, Where We Live is a child sexual abuse primary prevention program.  In contrast to many child sexual abuse curricula that focus on teaching children to protect themselves and report abuse, Where We Live focuses on engaging parents, adults, and communities to keep children safe, promote healthy child development, and change community norms that contribute to child sexual abuse.  The training will consist of four, two-hour sessions, participants engage in active discussion and practice to build the skills necessary to intervene, ask questions, and talk with their children about boundaries, relationships, and healthy sexuality.

DOR National MeetingThe Resource Sharing Project is providing this unique 2.5-day training on enhancing sexual assault services exclusively to OVW Rural Grantees that are dual/multi-service agencies. This national meeting will bring you together with your peers from dual/multiservice advocacy agencies to discuss aspects of providing innovative services to rural sexual assault survivors. Participants will learn how to use their strengths to craft individualized plans to confront sexual violence in their communities. Together, we will identify the barriers in rural communities and build on our strengths to create meaningful solutions for dual/multiservice advocacy agencies. There are only 100 seats available for this conference. Each Rural Grant (lead grantee and sub-grantees combined) may send four attendees. DOR State Coalition InstituteAfter the training, we invite state coalition staff to stay for the DOR State Coalition Institute, a half-day meeting to discuss methods and strategies in implementation of statewide sexual assault service enhancement projects. We will aid state coalitions in guiding member centers through the strengths-based assessments, adapting the Deepening Our Roots curriculum, and creating customized strategies to overcome the cultural and organizational barriers to high-quality rural sexual assault services in dual/multi-service agencies. The Institute must have a minimum of four coalitions in attendance.
