Description: 

Join experts from the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC), Crime Victims Services (CVS), and Social Solutions to learn what research and resources are available to help victim-serving agencies measure their activities and improve their impact.

Susan Howley of NCVC will offer insight into why the victims services field is moving increasingly towards measuring outcomes and delivering evidence-based programming, and what that means for service providers. David Voth of CVS will address how practitioners can contextualize programs in terms of specific outcomes and indicators to help connect staff efforts with participant outcomes, using tools like logic models. Nicole Geller of Social Solutions will address what technological supports exist today to help providers measure those program efforts and improve participant outcomes.

Description: 

Whether it is a single incident or an ongoing pattern of abuse, sexual assault can undermine a victim’s physical and emotional safety—effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security. This 90-minute webinar will address the importance of safety planning for victims of non-intimate partner sexual assault, explore how safety planning for these survivors may be different than safety planning with domestic violence victims, and provide tips for using the VRLC's new, OVW-approved guide to safety planning with adult survivors of non-intimate partner sexual assault. The webinar will include a discussion of strategies for protecting victim privacy, discussing emotional safety, and providing survivor-centered safety planning.

Description: 

It is increasingly acknowledged that efforts to promote victim and community safety and prevent sexual victimization can be enhanced when sexual assault victim advocates and sex offender management professionals work together toward a shared vision.  Recognizing this potential, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is supporting four national organizations – the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), and the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) – to partner on a novel initiative to support collaboration between sexual assault victim advocates and sex offender management professionals. This support will take the form of on-site training, technical assistance, written resources, and webinars. Please join us for the first in a series of webinars to be delivered under this national initiative. In this webinar, the presenters will provide an overview of the project and highlight the findings of needs assessments completed by national samples of representatives from the victim advocacy and sex offender treatment communities. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to: 

  • Learn about perspectives on collaboration between these stakeholder groups;
  • Develop an understanding about current trends and practices;
  • Hear factors that support or create barriers to collaboration;
  • Share promising strategies they have learned and used in the field; and
  • Learn about project resources and next steps.

 Registration is required to participate in this webinar. After your registration has been processed, you will receive instructions for joining the webinar. Click here to register. Presenters:
