Description: 

Girls, who understood the link between popular culture messaging and real violence against women, were infuriated by a t-shirt that depicted a boy pushing a girl down with the caption "Problem solved." And so they did something about it! After writing letters, circulating petitions, and speaking at a press conference, the t-shirt was removed from store shelves. In this webinar, Lyn Mikel Brown, Ed.D. will talk about the importance and influence of girl activism to create change large and small. She will share many examples of girls making change, and will provide tools that we as adults can use to encourage girls to use their voices.

Description: 

Homelessness has become a widespread public health issue with an estimated 671,859 people experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States. Stable housing is an essential human need and is a key social determinant of both health and mental health. Many who become homeless have a history of either childhood or adult trauma, or both, that can lead to the development of mental health problems and/or substance use disorders which become worse when an individual lives on the streets or in shelters.

"The goal of all prevention efforts must be safe, stable affordable, housing in mainstream settings and high quality services in the community," wrote Kenneth R. Wireman in the Journal of Primary Prevention. Without this, homelessness will continue to be a major issue with huge human and economic costs that affect individuals and the community. The importance of social connectedness must also be recognized and acted upon to reduce homelessness. Research has shown the importance of social connectedness to prevent homelessness and to help those who have experienced homelessness to reenter their communities as contributing members. Involving people in recovery in the development of services that support growth, wellness, and empowerment is essential if social inclusion is to become a reality. Preventing homelessness for individuals leads to improved health outcomes and reduced costs.

Description: 

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Corporation for Supportive Housing invite you to a webinar releasing exciting evaluative data from the Keeping Families Together pilot program.

The Keeping Families Together pilot program was designed to answer the question: “With the right combination of affordable housing and supportive services, can highly vulnerable families provide a stable, healthy environment for their children, thus preventing child welfare involvement?” Between October 2007 and July 2009, 29 New York City families participated in the program. These families all had significant, sometimes intergenerational, histories of chronic homelessness, child welfare involvement, substance abuse or mental illness, interpersonal violence and trauma.  Evaluation results show that the Keeping Families Together pilot program holds real promise through a holistic approach to affordable housing and services that preserves families experiencing serious challenges. The pilot shows that we can bring families back from the brink of major crisis and reduce the cycle of homelessness and involvement with child welfare and other agencies.

Date: Wednesday, February 2, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. (EST) /11:00 (PST)

What you will learn:
• The importance of connectivity in helping vulnerable families-specifically the impact of supportive housing on families who are chronically homeless and involved with child welfare.
• Overview of the Keeping Families Together model-a practical approach that holds significant promise for preserving vulnerable families and improving their health.
• Results from the Metis Associates evaluation on the Keeping Families Together pilot program.
Speakers will include:
• Nancy Barrand, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
• Connie Temple, Corporation for Supportive Housing
• Richard Cho, Corporation for Supportive Housing
• Alison Harte, Corporation for Supportive Housing, Keeping Families Together
• Metis Associates
• Eric Nicklas, Forestdale, Inc. (formerly of NYC Administration for Children's Services)

Description: 

Sexual assault and teen dating violence prevention education are critical to successful academic and health outcomes for youth. However, when schools and communities must prioritize limited resources, these topics often get lost. This facilitated discussion will explore how to maximize resources and promote violence prevention programs within the contexts of the state statute that supports comprehensive sexuality education (House Bill 1292) as well as the state academic content standards for comprehensive health education. We will discuss strategies to use these guidelines to build stronger cross-issue collaborations, and the role of community-based organizations in making curriculum recommendations to school districts.

Elder Abuse: Incidence and Prevalence on January 27, 2011: 1 - 3 p.m. EST.

Register to attend this free webinar.

The mistreatment of our nation’s elderly citizens may be more prevalent than previously known. In a recent nationwide study, 11% of elders reported being the victim of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse or neglect in the previous year.

What do we know about who is at the highest risk of mistreatment — and what do we know about the perpetrators?

In this event, presented by NIJ and Harvard's Government Innovators Network, three nationally recognized experts discuss the results of the NIJ-funded National Elder Mistreatment Study and what they mean for policymakers and practitioners as our nation faces the unique realities of the ever-growing population of elderly citizens.

The public understanding of sexual violence, domestic violence and teen dating violence has shifted over time. For effective prevention messages, we need to understand the current views about this issues. This web conference will highlight the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s (NSVRC) work with the FrameWorks Institute to research how the general public in the United States thinks about sexual violence and its prevention. The first phase of this recently-released study is already providing some fascinating insights that have implications for our communication strategies. This web conference will explore highlights from the research that compares experts’ knowledge of sexual violence with the general public’s understanding.

Some specific areas covered include: What is sexual violence? What is the cause? Who perpetrates sexual violence and why? Who are the victims? Is sexual violence preventable? Participants will discuss implications for prevention, policy, and communications and will learn what additional information will be coming in future phases of this ground-breaking research.
