This webinar for social service providers, law enforcement and other professionals who work with men, provides an opportunity to consider the particular ways men may respond differently to childhood sexual abuse. Whatever your level of knowledge about working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, this interactive webinar may encourage you to rethink your current assumptions, examine your expectations and to employ a lens of masculinity to enhance your existing skills when working with men.This workshop explores: Common misunderstandings about men and sexual abuse; special barriers men face in disclosing childhood abuse; how cultural norms may inhibit men from seeking treatment (Gender expression, Sexual Orientation, Race, Ethnicity, Faith…); the importance and role of language in advocacy & education; helpful audit tools for program effectiveness; discussion of existing resources and the challenge of finding therapists specifically trained to work with male survivors of sexual abuse; and guidance on the critical need to remain neutral when raising the issue of sexual abuse or responding to a disclosure.

Workshop Description: This workshop will define vicarious trauma and distinguish it from ideas of a job's "normal wear and tear." This training provides participants the opportunity to reflect on their current work experiences and learn preventative strategies for dealing with vicarious trauma. When considering environmental factors, levels of communication within organizations and personal methods of dealing with vicarious trauma, we can paint a better picture of creating healthy support and strategies for maintaining emotional well-being. This training is available to mental health professionals.

Event Abstract: This full-day training will provide corrections staff with the tools and information to develop victim services programs that are compliant with the new Prison Rape Elimination Act standards. Participants will gain the skills necessary to create a comprehensive, trauma-informed response that includes professionals from medical, mental health, legal, and law enforcement fields.Event Description:A victim-centered response integrates medical and mental health interventions with a robust process of investigating and prosecuting cases. To establish a coordinated response, corrections agencies must have the following: agreements with local rape crisis programs; a staff training curriculum; plans for emergency and long-term medical and mental health care; many ways for staff to intervene in, and for survivors to report cases of sexual abuse; a strategy for implementing the model national protocol for evidence collection; and MOUs with investigating and prosecuting authorities. This training will prepare agencies to put each of these pieces into place.The training will feature dynamic group exercises, expert panels, survivor testimonies, and interactive discussions to encourage the sharing of expertise and strategies. Attendees will also break into small groups based on the type of facility in which they work (prisons, jails, lock-ups, youth and community corrections facilities) to discuss issues that are specific to their detention setting.A training focused on inmate education will be held the previous day on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at the same location. Participants are encouraged to attend both. For more information click here.Eligibility Requirements:Applicants may apply for this training individually, but are encouraged to apply as part of a team of two or more per agency.
