This toolkit explores how social media tools can help spread awareness and advocate for social change. Daily posts for Twitter and conversation starters for Facebook promote online involvement in Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The primary goal of this support group manual is to help advocates and providers better meet the safety needs of battered women and survivors of sexual assault who are impacted by their own or another’s substance use, misuse or addiction. Getting Safe and Sober is a practical tool kit for use with women who have substance abuse or chemical dependence problems and who are, or have been, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or sexual abuse. The kit also can be used to train service providers about the needs of women whose experience includes both substance abuse and victimization.

This toolkit provides detailed information and guidance for juvenile justice agencies and facilities to implement Prison Rape Elimination Act standards. It guides organizations through effective implementation of prevention programs, early detection, and meaningful response to residents in these facilities.

This compilation includes existing tools for assessing intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual violence (SV) victimization in clinical/healthcare settings. The purpose of this compilation is to provide practitioners and clinicians with the most current inventory of assessment tools for determining IPV and/or SV victimization and to inform decisions about which instruments are most appropriate for use with a given population. This document will aid in the selection of assessment instruments to identify victims requiring additional services. This can help practitioners make appropriate referrals for both victims and perpetrators.
