Description: 

NEARI's mission is to share the cutting-edge research and best practices emerging in our field.   Within this one-hour webinar, Dr. Bengis will explore current best practices for working with adolescents who have sexually abused. Pulling from both clinical experience and the most current research, Dr. Bengis will focus on an individualized whole child approach to assessment and the principles and values that guide effective clinical treatment. This workshop is intended for those new to the field or others who are looking for a short overview of the latest research and thinking. If you have never tried a webinar, it is a chance to both hear a short talk about a specific topic and then be able to ask questions and participate in a discussion in "chat" as different issues are raised. It is a great way to learn, and you don't need to travel out of your office or home to interact with colleagues across the country.

Description: 

Most training on sexual assault of people with disabilities typically focuses on issues such as the following:•Definitions, descriptions, and characteristics of various disabilities•Legal requirements (e.g., compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act)•Physical accessibility issues•Communication guidelines (e.g., language use, communication aids and services)•Etiquette, respect, and empowermentThese are critically important areas, and the primary message of such training is often to "see the person, not the disability." Police officers are taught to approach victims with disabilities and the investigation "like they would in any other case." The hope is that victims who have a disability will be treated with the same respect as other victims, and this is an important goal we all need to support.However, when training for law enforcement focuses solely on respect, police officers are left wondering what they should actually do when they are assigned to investigate a crime against a person with a disability. How do they approach the victim, craft an investigative strategy, and gather and document the relevant evidence? How do they effectively communicate with victims, and ensure they are doing everything they can to protect victims' safety while still respecting their self-autonomy? How do they access and utilize the people, technologies, and resources that might be available to help?This webinar is designed to answer some of these questions.

Description: 

The investigation of sexual violence requires the very best from our criminal justice system. The individuals who commit these crimes, particularly those of the most violent nature, must be identified, captured, and brought to justice before they assault again. The investigation of these crimes, however, is remarkably complex and requires extensive cooperation and active communication across disciplines.This two-hour Policy and Practices Forum will convene experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts in various fields contributing to the investigation and processing of cases involving sexual violence. The presenters, whose experience spans decades, will discuss the complex relationship between law enforcement, science, medicine, and the judicial system. As they will explain, innovative jurisdictional practices and scientific research producing valuable solutions and insight can empower our criminal justice system to better respond to acts committed by sexual predators. The result of these enhanced approaches is the better collection of evidence, faster laboratory testing, improved case management, and more reliable prosecution of offenders.

In light of several recent, heinous incidents of violence against young women, specifically the Steubenville gang rape and the attack in New Delhi, among many others, advocates have reached out to NRCDV staff about being saddened and discouraged after reading through the details of these inhumane acts of violence against young women. To help offer a way for advocates to recharge and re-engage, the NRCDV brings to you the voices of 4 powerful women who are dedicated to ending violence against women and girls and who have been working in the movement for decades.

  • Anne Menard, Executive Director of the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence
  • Chic Dabby, Director of the Asian Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence
  • Patti Tototzintle, Chief Executive Officer of Casa de Esperanza
  • Umi, Project Director for the Institute on Domestic Violence in the African-American Community

Let’s learn from these four amazingly dedicated and experienced advocates about how to stay motivated and steadfast to do this work in the face of opposition, apathy, and continued acts of dehumanizing violence that often go unpunished.
