The Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI) was created to enhance sexual assault outreach, services, and community partnerships in dual/multi-­‐service programs. Six sites across the nation engaged in a four-­‐year process of assessment, planning, and implementation of new and enhanced services and organizational capacity building. The Final Report provides concrete lessons learned and recommendations for funders, technical assistance providers, and dual/multi-­‐service programs.

The Spring/Summer 2016 edition of The Resource highlights culture in a number of ways:

  • Director’s Viewpoint: Karen Baker, NSVRC Director, discusses how changes in the culture surrounding sexual violence have been prominent this year, from the Oscars to the White House.
  • Evaluation is for everyone: Multicultural Efforts to end Sexual Assault (MESA) shares their culturally relevant evaluation process, from building a framework to implementing strategies in the community.
  • West Virginia’s online academy provides needed resources: West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services (WVFRIS) developed an online training academy for service providers.
  • Community Integrity Program uses evidence-based practices: Princeton University’s Community Integrity Program is a secondary prevention program that holds individuals who offend accountable.
  • For some patients, there is a correlation between sexual trauma and disordered eating: Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine shares the connections between sexual trauma and eating disorders.

This issue also includes a look back at this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month, a spotlight on the Hawaii Coalition Against Sexual Assault’s Community Action Teams, and several milestones for NSVRC.

Proclamation

 

The National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) is an annual conference that brings together over 1,000 people to share information, advance learning opportunities, and support professional growth to those who work to address the needs of survivors of sexual assault, to raise awareness about sexual assault, and to prevent sexual assault from happening.

The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center are excited to announce a call for workshop proposals for the 2016 National Sexual Assault Conference, in Washington, D.C., at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park. The theme of the conference is “Hopeful FUTURE, Honored PAST.”

We welcome workshop proposals that focus on the uniqueness and value of sexual assault specific programs and services. Proposals that engage in a culturally competent approach to traditionally underserved populations and those that involve interactive learning techniques and innovative methods are encouraged.

We will be focusing on three categories this year:
• Direct Services - Working directly with individuals impacted by sexual violence.
• Prevention - Presentation or workshop submissions to the Prevention category should describe efforts to engage communities in the prevention of sexual assault, with an emphasis on primary prevention. Workshop proposals should address the needs of state grantees from the Rape Prevention & Education program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, their partners and/or the programs they support. Proposals should draw on the best available research and / or prevention practices.
• Systems/Collaboration

Electronic submissions must be received by 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, December 14, 2015. Applicants will receive notice by February 26, 2016. Read more for instructions on how to submit.

For each workshop session, only one (1) presenter will receive one (1) free conference registration and one (1) night’s lodging at the federal or state government rate, if the presenter’s office is more than 50 miles from the conference site (per government guidelines). If the workshop has multiple presenters, then they must select one individual to receive the one (1) free conference registration and one (1) night’s lodging, as permitted. NSVRC or PCAR will not reimburse for any other expenses incurred by the selected presenter(s) for each workshop.
