Reproductive Coercion and Partner Violence: A New Study on Unintended Pregnancies
Presented by Elizabeth Miller and Rebecca Levenson
 

A recent study by researchers from UC Davis School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health in collaboration with the Family Violence Prevention Fund sheds light on a little-recognized form of abuse in which men use coercion and birth control sabotage to get a female partner pregnant (when she doesn’t want to be) and attempt to control the outcomes of the pregnancy. Reproductive coercion is common in relationships where women experience physical or sexual partner violence. Joining us are author Elizabeth Miller, an assistant professor of Pediatrics in the UC Davis School of Medicine and practitioner at UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Rebecca Levenson, Senior Policy Analyst at the Family Violence Prevention Fund, who will discuss the findings of their study and the implications for prevention and intervention efforts.

Sexual Assault in the LGBTQ Community: What Every Prosecutor Needs to Know

Sexual orientation and gender identity can impact a sexual assault victim’s legal needs and the legal remedies available to victims; they also can shape both the strategy and the outcome of the case. To successfully prosecute cases involving lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender victims, attorneys must be both culturally competent and aware of how a victim’s sexual orientation and gender identity may play a role in the current case and the ramifications a criminal case may have on future civil actions involving the victim. In this webinar, participants will learn about the legal issues LGBTQ victims face and how to better prosecute cases involving victims from this community.

Laura Mahr is an attorney at the Victim Rights Law Center (VRLC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the nation’s legal response to rape and sexual assault. VRLC provides free legal representation to sexual assault survivors in Massachusetts, and legal technical assistance nationally on sexual assault issues. Ms. Mahr is based in the VRLC’s Portland, Oregon, office, where she provides national legal training and technical assistance on civil legal remedies for sexual assault victims to Office of Violence Against Women programs, including population-specific issues including survivors from the LGBTQ and farmworker communities.

Description: 

Most victim advocates are familiar with the role of the sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE), but many may not know about the unique work of a forensic nurse examiner (FNE). This webinar aims to increase understanding about the work of FNEs and collection of evidence in domestic violence, child abuse, elder abuse, and other crimes. Through this webinar victim service providers and other participants will become familiar with the importance of the medical forensic exam for DNA collection in crimes other than sexual assault and why having such trained examiners is important to survivors.

This live webinar begins at 3:00 PM EST and is for teen advocates, parents, adults in the youth ministry profession, and other adults working with teens.
Teen dating violence cuts across culture, class, geography, sexual orientation, faith, and gender, though females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to intimate partner violence than any other age group—at a rate almost triple the national average (Source: U.S. Dept. of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics).
Technology has also added a new twist to unhealthy teen relationships; because of cell phones it is now possible for controlling teens to keep tabs on their partners 24/7. Faith communities and other groups can help teens learn the warning signs of abusive relationships and develop the skills to discern the difference between affection and control.
This webinar, will explore these issues and what might work in your particular setting, including a look at an abuse prevention resource,Love – All That and More, a program designed for high school age youth.

Registration Deadline: August 24, 2010
