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

A Team Approach: Child Life's Role in Pediatric Sexual Abuse Cases

Nov. 1, 2017, 2pm ET

This webinar will focus on the collaboration between Pediatric Forensic Examiners and Certified Child Life Specialists (CCLS), particularly on the role of Child Life Specialists during the sexual abuse medical forensic exam. As trained medical professionals, Child Life Specialists utilize knowledge of child development, stress and coping theories, and family systems theories to promote positive outcomes during pediatric sexual abuse examinations. Working alongside Pediatric Forensic Examiners, Child Life Specialists are able to promote positive coping through rapport building, preparation, and developmentally appropriate divisional activities. During this webinar, the audience will learn about the role Child Life Specialists play while supporting staff, patients, and families during pediatric medical forensic exams. After the webinar, audiences should be able to: implement basic knowledge of child development theories during medical forensic exams, understand the role of child life, and name three successful outcomes that indicate positive coping during medical forensic exams.

How Language Helps Shape Our Response to Sexual Violence

August 10, 2017, 2pm ET

When discussing sexual violence, we often use the language of consensual sex to describe assaultive acts or use euphemisms, erotic, or affectionate terms to portray violent acts. This language implies consent and romance, rather than criminal acts. In addition, we tend to describe violence against women in passive terms, which allows the perpetrators of this violence to remain invisible and unaccountable. We also use language that objectifies or blames sexual assault victims. This interactive session will explore the language of sexual assault: how we talk about and write about this crime. We will discuss specific examples of the language we use and explore how to discuss sexual assault in a way that more accurately depicts the crime. This session is applicable to all members of the response team who work with survivors of sexual and domestic violence.

Which Comes First: the Child Forensic Interview or the Medical-Forensic Exam?

Aug 16, 2017 | 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EDT

Examine the National Children's Alliance's new standards for Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) and Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDTs) to determine which comes first, the child forensic interview or the medical-forensic examination. Special attention is paid to the new classification of disclosures of child sexual abuse as Emergency / Urgent / Non-urgent and best practices as defined by the Updated Guidelines for the Medical Assessment and Care of Children Who May Have Been Sexually Abused. The purpose and admissibility of statements made during the child forensic interview and during the medical forensic examination are also considered.

Technical Level: Intermediate About the Presenters: An experienced trial attorney and child advocate, Laurie Gray earned her B.A. from Goshen College and her J.D. from Indiana University Maurer School of Law. As an attorney in private practice from 1993-2000, Laurie's work included criminal defense and serving as court-appointed guardian ad litem in child welfare cases. As a Deputy Prosecutor in Allen County, Indiana, from 2000-2010, she primarily handled sexual assault cases (both adult and juvenile) and Drug Court. From 2010-2016, Laurie worked as an adjunct professor of criminal sciences at Indiana Tech and as a bilingual forensic interviewer at her local child advocacy center. Laurie co-wrote The ABC's of Sexual Assault: Anatomy, "Bunk" and the Courtroom with Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Michelle Ditton. Laurie currently works as the Statewide Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) Coordinator for the Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault. What's In It For You During the webinar, you will Review and analyze the Forensic Interview and Medical Evaluation portions of the 2017 National Children's Alliance Standards for Accredited Members and the criteria for categorizing a disclosure of child sexual abuse as Emergency, Urgent or Non-urgent. Recognize the need for each MDT to establish a triage procedure for children that reflects best practices in those cases where a medical examination must be performed "without delay." Consider the purpose and admissibility of statements made during the child forensic interview and during the medical forensic examination.
