Description: 

The Sexual Assault Across the Lifespan National Technical Assistance Project, a project of the National Sexual Violence Resource center, invites you to attend our upcoming webinar, "Prosecuting Cases of Sexual Violence in Later Life". Misconceptions about older adults and aging can make cases of sexual assault later in life difficult to prosecute. To build an effective prosecution it is necessary for criminal justice professionals to understand not only the unique realities of aging and elder abuse but also how to contest stereotypes about older adults used to cast doubt on testimony.    Join us as Viktoria Kristiansson, Attorney Advisor for AEquitas: The Prosecutors' Resource on Violence Against Women, and Linda Dawson, Elder Justice Coordinator for the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), share their insights on how to support survivors and hold offenders accountable in cases of sexual violence in later life.   At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  1. Identify the dynamics of sexual abuse in later life and consequences for older victims
  2. Recognize tactics employed by offenders who commit sexual assault via force, fraud, or coercion
  3. Investigate and prosecute cases involving the sexual assault of older victims
  4. Promote collaboration and communication among agencies involved with elder abuse cases

Description: 

Just Detention International is a international health and human rights organization that seeks to eliminate sexual violence in all forms of detention. "The Right Response: Addressing Sexual Abuse in Large, Urban Jails" is the third in a three-part series of webinars on providing services to survivors of sexual abuse in jails. This JDI webinar will help advocates develop a better understanding of the crisis of sexual abuse in large, urban jails. The session will review the obstacles to providing victim services in such facilities, such as the high levels of need among inmates. Participants will hear from expert speakers on how to conduct hospital accompaniments, handle hotline calls, and deliver vital-in person services. The webinar will also review the new opportunities to expand inmate services afforded by the Prison Rape Elimination Act standards, which are binding on jails nationwide. 

The session will feature a conversation between a community-based victim services advocate and the administrator of a large, urban jail who are collaborating on a program to address sexual abuse in the facility. They will discuss the benefits of working together, and offer tips on overcoming the challenges of working in city jails with many inmates. The session will conclude with a presentation on creating sexual assault response teams, followed by a question-and-answer session. 

The series is part of JDI’s National Sexual Violence in Detention Education and Resource Project, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. The first two webinars of this series can be found in the archived webinars section of this page.

Who Should Attend: 

This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers – rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators – though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to attend. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited.

Description: 

Stalking is a dangerous crime that affects 3.4 million adults in the United States each year.  The better we understand the facts about stalking, the more we can do to stop it.

That’s why the Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime, and the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, launched National Stalking Awareness Month in 2004. Every January since then, communities across the country have focused on stalking – holding events, sharing information, and building awareness about the crime.
