Description: 
"One in Eight: The Reality of Sexual Abuse in Youth Detention” is the first in a three-part series of webinars on providing services to survivors of sexual abuse in juvenile detention. This webinar will cover the juvenile detention system, focusing on the crisis of sexual abuse facing youth detainees. Expert presenters will review the offenses that most often result in the incarceration of young people, and the types of facilities that are used to detain them. The session will also look at the Prison Rape Elimination Act standards, which apply to youth facilities. The webinar will feature talks by community advocates as well as survivors of sexual abuse in youth detention. These perspectives will help shed light on why so many youth detainees – one in eight overall – are sexually victimized, and on the impact of this abuse on youth and their communities.

Who Should Attend: This webinar series 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.
 
The series is part of JDI’s National Sexual Violence in Detention Education and Resource Project, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. JDI is an international health and human rights organization that seeks to eliminate sexual violence in all forms of detention.
