Description: 

As a way to extend its reach and services to institutions of higher education, the Higher Education Center convenes and broadcasts a series of interactive Webinars on current issues in campus alcohol, other drug, and violence (AODV) prevention. The Webinar topics and materials focus on using research-based prevention strategies, as well as current and emerging AODV issues based on the work of leading researchers and practitioners in the field.

The Center’s Webinar series as a whole will represent a coherent “prevention program,” with skills and knowledge based on the Center’s comprehensive approach to AODV prevention. While each interactive Webinar will be an effective, discrete learning opportunity, those who participate in the entire series will gain a toolkit of AODV prevention skills and build their prevention capacity.

Description: 

This webinar, co-led by Dave Thomas, as retired police officer and expert in domestic violence, and Lisa Ferentz, a clinical social worker specializing in trauma, will focus on the adverse impact of the Reid technique used by police when interviewing victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.  the impact of chronic trauma on survivors will be discussed and connected to inevitable outcomes in victims' behaviors at the scene of their traumas, in the police station, and in the courtroom.

Participants will learn how these presentations are often misinterpreted by member os the criminal justice system, leading victims to be viewed as deceptive, pressured to recant, or even criminally charged with "False Report." Mental health professionals and advocates will learn how to work with victims and collaborate with the criminal justice system to ensure that victims receive the victim-centered treatment they truly deserve.

Description: 

A webinar co-sponsored by APHA will take place on Wenesday, Jan. 18, 11:30am to 1pm PST.  Although the Prevention and Public Health Fund survived the end-of-th-year budget negotiations, the threat to the fund continues to be very real.  Representatives and senators return to Washington, D.C., in mid-January to negotiate longer-term extensions to the payroll tax reduction, federal unemployment benefits, and to maintain Medicare reimbursement for physicians - and the prevention fund will likely be used as a bartering chip.  APHA, PolicyLink, Prevention Institute, Public Health Institute and Trust for America's Health invite you to join in a discussion to review strategies to educate elected officials about the value of prevention and public health-related programs and to identify action steps you can take to help protect funding for public health in 2012.

Description: 

All states and territories must certify that they are in compliance with VAWA 2005 requirements for medical forensic examinations. Specifically, exams must be available to sexual assault victims: 1) free of charge, and 2) regardless of their decision to participate in the criminal justice process.
 
Communities have faced considerable challenges in designing protocols that are compliant, in areas such as: the initial response to a sexual assault disclosure, payment for the medical forensic examination, mandatory reporting to law enforcement, storage and transportation of evidence, case tracking and retrieval, processing of evidence, and the potential for evidence-based prosecution (i.e., without the victim's cooperation). For many states and territories, the changes that are required in public policy and daily practice have been described as "monumental."
