Description: 

This JDI webinar on preventing sexual abuse in youth detention will cover the importance of partnerships between community advocates and corrections officials and the vital role of community advocates in serving incarcerated youth. Leaders from both fields will discuss trauma-informed responses to this abuse and new opportunities to provide services to this underserved group afforded by the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. The speakers will also address related changes in juvenile correction's approach to sexual abuse and next steps for continuing this critically important cultural shift.

The webinar will offer examples of successful community-corrections partnerships, and will feature a conversation between an advocate and corrections leader who are currently working together to end sexual violence against youth behind bars. These discussions will demonstrate how such collaborations can ensure that youth get the help they need, including confidential rape crisis services. This webinar is the second in a three-part series on sexual violence in youth detention.

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.

Register online.

Description: 

Protocols or not, the complexity of responding to incidents of sexual assault ensures that gaps, changes, or emerging problems will continually arise and need to be addressed. Problem solving can and should be a team building process. Specific case examples of more and less effective responses are useful tools to help teams design improved responses.   At the same time, there are legal, political, and safety implications for how teams go about these conversations. This webinar will discuss at least three approaches to how teams might learn from cases (system consultation, case review, and case management) with consideration for these factors. The purpose, process, and potential outcome of each approach will be covered along with examples of how SART teams have been using them.
