Webinar: Women’s Social Context and Well-Being following Police-reported Intimate Partner Violence

A webinar is an on-line seminar and requires access to the internet to connect.

Audio options are:
1) Teleconference (cost of calling long distance to Texas is your responsibility);
2) VoIP (free audio through the internet, speakers are required).

Faculty: Anne P, DePrince, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at the University of Denver. She also serves as the Faculty Director of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at the University of Denver. A licensed clinical psychologist in Colorado, she teaches courses on violence against women, research methods, and clinical interventions. Drawing on multiple methodologies (e.g., cognitive tasks, clinical interviews, survey methodology), DePrince’s researchfocuses on the consequences of violence and abuse in both youth and adults with particular emphasis on intimate abuse.

Discussants: Attorney and Advocate, TBA.

Host: Barbara Hart, J.D. Muskie School of Public Service and Battered Women’s Justice Project.

The Webinar will explore women’s experiences following reports of intimate partner abuse (IPA) to law enforcement. Dr. DePrince’s research examines the impact of victim-focused, community coordinated response (CCR) on women’s well being, as well as criminal justice outcomes. Extending past research that has tended to focus primarily on characteristics of victims, this research used spatial analyses (i.e., a geographic information system) to consider relations between women’s social context and well-being following IPA. Thus, this Webinar will describe ways that spatial analyses can inform understanding of women’s experiences following IPA.

For LGBT youth, being able to be out or open about their sexual orientation and/or gender identity at school may not only enhance their feelings of school belonging, but also contribute to healthy development and positive well-being. Yet, being out may also be related to increased vulnerability at school. This webinar will present findings from the 2009 National School Climate Survey on how being out in school is related to in-school harassment and assault, psychological well-being, and attachment to school.

Public Health Leadership for Violence Prevention Webinar

From infants to the elderly, violence affects people in all stages of life. Each year, more than 50,000 violence-related deaths are reported in the United States. The number of violent deaths tells only part of the story. Many more survive violence and are left with permanent physical and emotional scars. Violence also erodes communities by reducing productivity, decreasing property values, and disrupting social services.
To address these issues, a quarterly webinar series has been developed to showcase violence prevention efforts implemented through public health infrastructure. The goal of this series is to highlight the importance of violence prevention as a public health priority.
You are invited to participate in the first webinar which will focus on public health leadership for violence prevention. Participants will have the opportunity to hear public health leaders from across the country discuss the important role that public health agencies play in improving the health of communities by preventing violence. This session will:
• Emphasize violence prevention and its relationship to other public health issues;
• Highlight violence prevention efforts within state and local health systems; and
• Describe the need for public health infrastructure and partnership engagement.
 

Speakers include:
• Dr. Judy Monroe, Deputy Director, Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, CDC
• Dr. Paul Halverson, President, Association for State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO)
• Ms. Carol Moehrle, President, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)
• Dr. Georges Benjamin, Executive Director, American Public Health Association (APHA)
• Ms. Amber Williams, Executive Director, Safe States Alliance

The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Rodney Hammond, Director, Division of Violence Prevention, CDC

Description: 

The SADI is the first large-scale project to address the challenges dual/multi-service programs face in reaching sexual assault survivors by dedicating resources, support, and replicable tools tailored specifically to the needs of those programs. The SADI will develop a range of innovative outreach tools, service models, and agency structures to discover best practices and needed action in reaching more sexual assault survivors with comprehensive quality care. To create and develop these tools, the SADI will work with approximately six (6) project sites across the nation.

OVW will also conduct six (6) Pre-Concept Paper conference calls. During these calls, OVW staff will review the SADI Call for Concept Papers requirements and the application process and allow for a brief question and answer session. Participation in these calls is optional for applicants and does not indicate a commitment to submitting an application. Your registration must be received within two hours prior to the start of the call. To register for a conference call, please visit SADI Pre-Application Conference Call Registration.
