This webinar will provide a review of the relevant case law, and will explore how trial prosecutors can present a case involving forensic testing that involves a multitude of technicians and experts. It will also address Williams’ impact on “cold cases,” in which original experts who performed autopsies and other forensic examinations and testing are no longer available for trial. This webinar will provide practical suggestions to trial prosecutors who must balance limited resources against the need to secure convictions that will withstand confrontation challenges on appeal.Allied justice system professionals including but not limited to prosecutors, law enforcement officers, lab personnel, medical professionals, and judges are encouraged to view the recording.Register Now!

Prevention work can be hugely successful outside of the traditional classroom.

Description: 

The abuse of older adults is a common problem in our society, but rarely discussed. This is particularly challenging because victims/survivors of elder abuse are often an invisible population across cultures, gender, immigration status, etc. In this 30 minutes session, presenters will discuss the specific and unique needs of Latin@ victims of elder abuse as this group is especially underrepresented in research and practice. Best approaches for bridging this gap as well as examples of successful collaborations to address this problem will be highlighted.What is BlogTalkRadio?

Description: 

Canada’s population is becoming increasingly diverse. However, the provision of culturally responsive services is still a challenge to our society. In particular, community services for partner violence and sexual assault in are insensitive and inadequate for certain groups of people. Individuals from various racial, ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds, different age groups and sexual orientation, continue to express their concerns of having limited access to culturally relevant services. What do service providers need to do to work effectively with diverse people in diverse environments?This webinar will highlight the services provided by the Diversity Outreach and Court Support Program at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, followed by a presentation on the complexity of working with people from diverse cultural background with diverse worldviews and perspectives. The webinar will then explore various strategies that allow service providers to apply a multicultural worldview that responds to increasingly complex environments. It will include a segment on community development principles, relationship building, and learning from the wisdom and lived experiences of the people.

Description: 

Because social norms for men often inhibit their effective emotional responses to childhood trauma, men often learn to cope other ways — sometimes not so effective ways. These may include addiction to alcohol, drugs, food, work, pornography and unsafe sexual practices; risky physical activities; issues with anger management; suicide, and physical violence. So instead of calling rape crisis centers or mental health clinics, male survivors often show up in court, rehab facilities, or in the ER without ever disclosing their secret. This webinar explores: men’s presenting issues that may reflect a history of childhood sexual abuse; resources and options for men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse; ineffective coping strategies men use that may be related to childhood sexual abuse; Ways men may respond differently from women to a history of abuse; availability of resources for male survivors; social/cultural norms for men that inhibit male survivors from reaching out for help; self-care issues that may arise when working with male survivors; and impact of abuse and resources for secondary survivors (family and loved ones).
