Join us for the next webinar in this three-part series for rape crisis advocates and other community-based service providers, as we explore what services advocates can provide to inmates, and strategies for providing these services in a detention setting. This webinar will give an overview of JDI’s publication, Hope Behind Bars: An Advocate’s Guide to Helping Survivors of Sexual Abuse in Detention, which includes best practices for providing hospital accompaniment, hotline services, written correspondence, and in-person services to incarcerated survivors. The online training will feature advocates discussing their own experiences of working with survivors in prisons and jails, and how to overcome common barriers in these settings. The session is geared toward advocates but anyone who works with current or former detainees is encouraged to attend. Although this webinar is the second in a series, people who were unable to join us for part one are encouraged to attend. This series of webinars is being supported by the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.
