Challenging Victims: The Delicate Dynamics of Drug and Alcohol Facilitated Sexual Assault Webinar

Friday, September 22nd, 2017
10:00 AM PT/11:00 AM MT/12:00 PM CT/1:00 PM ET

(This webinar is approximately 90 minutes long.)

Sexual assault, especially non-stranger assaults in alcohol and drug-fueled settings often involve some of the most difficult and delicate case dynamics when it comes to working with victims and witnesses. Successful collaboration between investigators, victim witness advocates, and prosecutors is essential to gaining victim trust, and maintaining victim cooperation throughout the length of the case.

This presentation will detail best practices involved in making initial victim contact, collaboration between prosecutors and investigators, interviewing victims prior to the charging decision, requesting additional follow-up by investigators, and using expert witnesses to explain victim-perpetrator dynamics in sexual assault cases.

The presenters will also discuss how alcohol can affect the way a victim behaves during and after the assault, can impair memory, and the challenges often inherent in victim statements, including inconsistencies, omissions, and untruths. They will describe strategies for increasing the accuracy of a victim's statement-which is often a significant issue when the sexual assault was preceded by a night of overindulgence by both the victim and perpetrator.

Objectives

As a result of this session, participants will be better able to:

  • Tailor an approach to initial victim contact designed to build trust and maximize information gathering.
  • Maintain a working relationship of trust and transparency with victims in order to facilitate cooperation throughout the life cycle of a case.
  • Identify areas in each case where expert testimony would assist the trier of fact.
  • Identify the effect of alcohol on behavior and memory, identify the dose-dependent nature of impairment due to drinking, and identify at least two legal drugs that can increase the impact of alcohol consumption.

#PowerInPrevention Ending Child Sexual Abuse: Survivor Leadership: It's Relevance to Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Responsibility for ending child sexual abuse is a collective responsibility. A foundational component of this important work - survivors' experience, self-determination and leadership - is too often silenced or met with a glass ceiling of involvement. For survivors of color, LGBTQ survivors and male survivors, we can do so much more in our existing services and in our movement, to be more welcoming and inclusive. This workshop brings together Ahmad Greene-Hayes and Amita Swadhin, nationally recognized survivors, powerful speakers and important leaders in our movement to address the role of survivor leadership in preventing child sexual abuse.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify the challenges and successes for building a more inclusive movement
  • Articulate the role, importance, and rational for survivor leadership in ending child sexual abuse.
  • Define the role of allies and other affected by child sexual abuse in working collectively with survivors to do this work

Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches

Monday, August 28, 2017

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released a new guidance document, Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches, to assist prevention practitioners in making decisions about balancing the delivery of violence prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local contexts. The guidance explores how evidence-based approaches to preventing violence work, understanding the essential elements of a prevention approach, and how this knowledge can be used to effectively select, deliver, adapt and evaluate approaches. This web conference will present major concepts in this guidance and highlight practical tools that practitioners can use to estimate the essential elements of a prevention approach and track and evaluate adaptations in their own settings.

Supporting Women and Girls' Leadership in Sport to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence

TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2017

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Sports have enormous influence on culture and can play an important role in preventing sexual and domestic violence. Youth sports, in particular, teach youth more than just how to play the game. Life lessons such as teamwork, leadership skills, accountability, and self-reflection can all be facilitated through participation in sport and sports teams. Efforts to prevent sexual and domestic violence through sport typically target men and boys, but what about women and girls? Sport has the ability to lift up athletes on women and girls' teams as leaders who play an important role in demanding and reinforcing a culture that denounces violence and supports healthy individuals, relationships, and communities. Join PreventConnect and Raliance to explore these possibilities and to learn about a new culturally competent and research-based prevention program for high school girls' sports teams called, "Student Leaders and Athletic Youth" (SLAY). The lead author of the program and student-athlete participants will share curriculum content, evaluation results, and highlight an RPE-funded project at a diverse urban high school in Seattle as a case example. The author will also share about new opportunities for piloting the program and evaluation.

A Safe Place to Call Home: Transforming the Physical/Built Environment for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

MOUNTAIN (MST/MDT) 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

CENTRAL (CST/CDT) 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

EASTERN (EST/EDT) 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Place matters for sexual and domestic violence prevention. Protective physical/built environments can help achieve community-level results and significantly influence individual behavior. "Place factors" like a neighborhood looking and feeling inviting and safe or having parks and open space can enhance factors in the sociocultural environment (e.g. sense of community, strong social networks and neighbors helping each other). In this interactive web conference, we will continue to build on the THRIVE framework to explore the role sexual and domestic violence prevention practitioners can play in helping design spaces that promote safety. Guests will share why they are focused on place-based efforts for sexual and domestic violence prevention and what they are specifically doing in communities.

HOSTS: Ashleigh Klein-Jimenez and Meghna Bhat, PreventConnect and CALCASA

FACILITATORS: Alisha Somji and Lisa Fujie Parks, Prevention Institute

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify how place-based strategies can support protective factors for sexual and domestic violence prevention
  • Highlight ways to identify community design issues and advocate for change
  • Provide examples of on the ground place-based strategies
  • Engage in a candid discussion on transforming the physical/built environment for prevention

Presenters:

  • Kathryn Travers, Executive Director, Women in Cities International
  • Linda Wilk, Director, Hands of Hope
  • Colleen Yeakle, Coordinator of Prevention Initiatives, Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence
