If the role that sharing personal stories can play in emotional healing is so clear, why do few community-based opportunities exist for trauma survivors to connect with each other, share their experiences publicly, and demand justice?  Since 1999, StoryCenter has been partnering with behavioral health, grassroots survivor support, and advocacy organizations to create compassionate listening environments where “sensitive” and stigmatized stories can be explored within local communities.

This webinar, led jointly with our Asian Women’s Shelter colleague Orchid Pusey, offers: 

  • An overview of the theory, research, and practice behind our approach to addressing trauma;
  • An honest look at case study examples, with attention both to the ways they have made a difference and the ways they might be improved; and
  • A guided, interactive conversation about when sensitive stories can be impactful, in a community-based public health context, and when the challenges inherent in “representing” trauma suggests alternative approaches are appropriate.

Description: 

Stalking is a crime that is frequently minimized and misunderstood, in part because it is a behavior that is socially normalized. Media plays a critical role in shaping our understanding of stalking, and other forms of violence. Media literacy is a tool that we can all use to better deconstruct media and deconstruct the culture at large as we work towards building more effective violence response and prevention methods. Using media clips and examples, this webinar will introduce basic media literacy concepts and deconstruction questions that can be integrated into stalking, domestic violence, and sexual assault response and prevention programs, workshops, and daily conversations.

Description: 

Comprehensive prevention practices must include culturally competent components. Preventionists do not need to be experts on these beliefs, but must have a foundational understanding of the intersections of child sexual abuse, cultural norms, and societal pressures, to create community centered programing. In this web conference, we will highlight Indigenous communities and the work community members are doing to end child sexual abuse.
 
This web conference is a part of PreventConnect and Ms. Foundation for Women's third year of the #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is supporting three national organizations – the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP) – to partner on a novel initiative to provide training and technical assistance to enhance probation responses to cases involving sexual assault.  This project aims to promote well-informed, victim-centered probation responses within the context of a comprehensive approach to sex offender management through on-site training, technical assistance, written resources, and webinars.

  • Provide an overview of this project and the resources it can offer to the field; 
  • Highlight the importance of victim-centeredness as an underlying tenet of sex offender management efforts, including probation practices; 
  • Summarize findings from a national needs assessment of representatives from the victim advocacy and probation/parole supervision communities regarding shared goals, current practice trends and collaborations, and decision points that have implications for enhancing victim-centered probation responses; and 
  • Offer examples of ways in which victim-centered sex offender supervision practices are being implemented.  

Anticipated presenters for this session will be:

  • Karen Baker, Executive Director, National Sexual Violence Resource Center
  • Dr. Kurt Bumby, Project Director, Center for Sex Offender Management
  • Carl Wicklund, Executive Director, American Probation and Parole Association
