Description: 

Since the 2003 passage of the Prison Rape Elimination Act, the issue of sexual abuse behind bars has gained attention among many corrections and government officials, and some community-based victim advocates and medical professionals. However, too often victims of sexual abuse in detention still face extreme barriers in receiving proper medical, crisis intervention, and mental health services. This webinar will address the unique dynamics of sexual abuse in detention and how medical professionals, victim advocates and community-based Sexual Assault Response Teams can address teh unique needs of incarcerated victims. The webinar will include information about the prevalence of sexual abuse in both adult and juvenile facilities, barriers to victims' recovery, best practices for providing crisis intervention and counseling to victims, and the importance of prison-based SARTs.

Engaging men to end gender violence is difficult and becomes more complex when we begin to recognize the multiple identities we all bring to the work and how they impact the way we interact. This webinar will explore some of the barriers men of color face participating in a predominately White female movement to end gender violence. The facilitators will draw upon their personal and professional experiences in the field and provide some strategies to improve engagement and support of men of color in the movement.
