Program implementers often utilize national registries of evidence-based programs to assess the efficacy of available program options and use guidance from these sites to gauge the appropriateness of alternative programs. In this Webinar, using bullying prevention programming as an example of this process, experts in the field will provide participants:

  • Information on what comprises “evidence,” particularly in the context of national evidence-based registries.
  • Guidance on how to effectively use evidence-based program directories while accounting for unique school/organization/community needs and realities.
  • Examples of why some evidence-based programs may not be a good fit with particular settings.
  • Details on why it is important to continually assess program implementation efforts.
  • Information on the review process currently underway for the federal evidence based program registries.

Presenters for the session will be:

  • Brian Bumbarger, Director at Penn State's Evidence-Based Prevention and Intervention Support Center (EPISCenter),
  • Nancy Vaniman, Project Manager of Choose Peace Stop Violence at United Way of Broward County, and
  • Amy Staubs, Policy Advisor, Office of the Assistant Attorney General, Office of Justice Programs.

If we are serious about ending child sexual abuse, then we need to pay attention to why there are so many adults, adolescents and even children who perpetrate acts of sexual abuse. In this web conference, two national experts, Joan Tabachnick and David Prescott, bring a wealth of information about what we know (and don't know) about those who sexually abuse. Through this brief web conference, we will explore the research available about the adults who have sexually offended as well as the sexually abusive adolescents and children with sexual behavior problems. The speakers will also explore how this information can be/has been useful to the development of prevention programs.

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.

One of the great challenges of rural sexual assault advocacy work is finding appropriate and compassionate medical care for sexual violence survivors. We have such limited healthcare resources in our rural communities. In this 90-minute webinar, Cat Fribley and Kris Bein will help OVW Rural Grantees explore new strategies and tap into new resources for comprehensive sexual violence medical advocacy. We will discuss questions such as:

  • What if our community doesn’t have a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner?
  • What if our community hospital is closing?
  • How can we help survivors access long-term healthcare, not just emergency care?
