Description: 

As healthy sexuality gains momentum as an approach to sexual violence prevention, it can be easy for beginners to feel they are in uncharted territory. This workshop will focus on exploring the basics of the healthy sexuality framework and how it connects to and strengthens prevention efforts. No question or concern is off-limits as we create a space that is centered on increasing participant’s skills, comfort-level and fluency in discussing and defining healthy sexuality. Participants will learn strategies for including healthy sexuality in sexual violence prevention efforts. This workshop will be interactive in format, allowing for activities, discussion, and feedback regarding opportunities and barriers. Note: this is a repeat of the training with the same name in November 2012. It was so popular, we decided to offer it again!

A two-part training led by Viktoria Kristiansson of AEquitas: The Prosecutors' Resource on Violence Against Women.

  • Intimate Partner Sexual Assault 

This presentation will examine the devastating dynamics of sexual assault by an intimate partner including the use of power and control in a battering relationship. It will provide an overview of intimate partner sexual assault, the impact on victims and the resulting behavior and the importance of a coordinated community response to this crime. Prosecutors and allied professionals will be better able to recognize and respond to common challenges in these cases including the reluctant victim, victim intimidation and manipulation and confronting the misperceptions of the judge or jury.

  • Overcoming the Consent Defense: Prosecuting the Non-stranger Rapist 

This session will examine the dynamics of non-stranger sexual assault, identify the challenges in investigating and prosecuting these cases, and explore strategies for overcoming these challenges. The presenter will discuss the characteristics of the non-stranger rapist and how they challenge traditional perspectives of investigators, prosecutors, judges and juries. Additionally this presentation will address the unique vulnerability of victims in non-stranger rape situations. This presentation will highlight the importance of an offender-focused approach throughout the investigation and prosecution. Additional topics include common defense questions and rape myths that can be barriers to a successful prosecution.

A 90-minute webinar presented by Philip McCabe, Health Educator at UMDNJ and leader of NJ Gay Health Initiative Project.

Sexual violence is any act (verbal and/or physical) which breaks a person’s trust and/or safety and is sexual in nature.Heterosexism and homo/trans phobia in our culture puts LGBTQ people at greater risk for sexual assault. It is common for perpetrators to use sexual violence as a way to punish and humiliate someone for being LGBTQ, and/or for sexual assault to be one type of violence that occurs during an anti-LGBTQ battering. Interpersonal violence can also occur between same sex domestic partners, former partners, other family members, friends, co workers and others known to the victim. Providers can benefit from understanding the difficulty for LGBTQ victims to receive services as well as what considerations can be beneficial for providing LGBTQ affirmative, trauma informed services. 

As a result of this webinar participants will:

*Analyze the prevalence and consequences of sexual violence as it pertains to LGBTQ individuals.

*Describe special considerations in working with victims of same-gender violence and also individuals who identify as LGBTQ and are victims of opposite gender sexual violence.

Participants will use GoToMeeting to join the webinar. After you register, you will receive an email with instructions for participating.

Time: 2:00p-3:30p

Location: GoToMeeting.com
