Description: 

Some of the most familiar adolescent health programs engage youth in lively group activities, such as interactive games and role plays, where the energy in the room is high and could be mistaken for pandemonium. Now imagine a quiet space, where the trained facilitator guides the participants through a journey that could lead them to change their behavior, avoid risk, and choose a healthy, safe future. Motivational interviewing (MI) is gaining a robust evidence base, and practitioners are enthusiastically integrating it in program implementation. Join Healthy Teen Network to learn more about MI and how it can enhance the delivery of your program. Presenters: Deborah Chilcoat, MEd & Mousumi Banikya-Leaseburg, MD, MPH, CPH.

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, MEd. Learn more about the Healthy Teen Network and webinar series.

Description: 

Research on so-called “undetected” rapists – men who commit rapes but who are either not reported or not prosecuted for their crimes – has clearly demonstrated that the old stereotypes about rapists are false. Undetected rapists, who represent the vast majority of rapists, and account for the vast majority of rapes, use extensive planning, often use of alcohol and other drugs to render their victims vulnerable, and rely on minimal force to threaten and intimidate their victims into submission. A majority of these rapists are serial offenders, and the evidence suggests that they typically begin their offending careers during adolescence. Evidence also indicates that serial offenders account for more than 90% of all rapes. These data underscore the potential importance of testing non -stranger sexual assault kits and maintaining DNA databases derived from the processing of rape kits.
