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!

Description: 

Using trauma-informed approaches in our work with youth means listening with a different ear--one that hears the child within and recognizes earlier traumatic experiences that may be shaping current behavior.  During this 60 minute webinar, we will define trauma and explore the types most often experienced by children.  We will make the connections between earlier exposure to trauma and current sexual, reproductive, and parenting behaviors among youth.  Finally, we will present examples of how youth-supportive services may differ if conducted through a trauma-informed lens.   Presenters: Pat Paluzzi, CNM, DrPH & Deborah Chilcoat, MEdTo register click here.

Description: 

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.

Description: 

The US Department of State estimates that 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked through international borders each year, which does not include countless numbers trafficked domestically within their own countries.  Human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the 21st century - a nine billion dollar industry.  The United States is one of the top three destination points for trafficked victims, the majority of which are women and children.

While domestic violence and human trafficking are different forms of victimization, many similarities and points of intersection exist.  Traffickers prey on those who suffer most from social factors like gender discrimination, violence and abuse.  This workship will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and in colorado and offer concrete tools and resources for effective response.

Description: 

Incident-based data reported by law enforcement capture numerous elements that can help uncover patterns about particular types of crime, crime victims, arrestees, and other factors. The knowledge provided from analyzing IBR data has contributed to strategic and operational changes in law enforcement agencies, the creation of more effective prevention programs, the establishment of educational programs for victims and advocacy groups, and changes in justice policy. The purpose of this webinar is to demonstrate the utility of incident-based data as an analytic tool to address matters relevant to policy. Presenters will discuss issues they have addressed using such data: how they analyzed the data, how the findings led to a better understanding of problems such as domestic violence and disproportionate minority contact, and the policy and/or strategic implications of their findings. They will also discuss the limitations of the data and possible future research to further explore the issue.Panelists: Max Schlueter SAC Director, Vermont Center for Justice Research Rob McManus SAC Director, Office of Justice Programs, South Carolina Department of Public SafetyModerator: Lisa Walbolt Wagner, Research Associate, Justice Research and Statistics Association
