This sixth webinar in the series is presented as part of the SAFE Technical Assistance Project. The project is a cooperative agreement between the Office on Violence Against Women and the International Association of Forensic Nurses.
Presented by Linda Ledray, PhD, RN, FAAN, SANE-A, this webinar will offer education and practical solutions to Sexual Assault Response Teams that are looking for resources to create a case review process. For SART teams that are "seasoned" at the process, this webinar will provide an opportunity to enhance practices.
At the end of the event, attendees will be able to

  • Describe the SART case review process;
  • Identify reasons that case review should take place; and
  • Identify how case review in the SART can positively impact the quality of victim response in communities.

Host(s): Leah Lutz

The Sexual Violence Justice Institute @ MNCASA specializes in assisting multidisciplinary teams in designing and strengthening their response to sexual assault victims/survivors. In thier upcoming three-part webinar series, they will explore how teams and communities can move beyond protocols and explore justice making. Intriguing information and insights will be shared showing how society and professional response influences victims/survivors' access to justice.

The first webinar will focus on the concept of justice making. Specifically, they will:

  • Explore an understanding of justice-making for victims as a process, rather than just a criminal justice system outcome.
  • Describe the role that tangible and intangible supports play in the justice-making process--specifically the power of listening generously.
  • Provide specific examples of how multidisciplinary teams can influence this broader approach to justice-making for sexual assault victims/survivors.

Join WATCH on Tuesday, July 20th at 11:30am CST (9:30am PST, 10:30am MST, 12:30pm EST) for a one-hour webinar on System Accountability for Sexual Assault Cases with special guest Laura Jones, attorney and CourtWatch Manager of King County Sexual Assault Resource Center in Seattle. Through monitoring, research, and feedback, court watch programs promote system accountability by examining and reporting on court procedures, policies, and practices. But with so few cases of sexual violence getting reported to the police and even fewer going to trial, how can court monitoring help? This one-hour presentation will provide an overview of court monitoring and address ways sexual assault programs and advocates can highlight flaws in the system and advocate for change. Special guest Laura Jones will discuss her program’s project using court monitors to examine their Sexual Assault Protection Order process.

COST: $35 for National Association of Court Monitoring Program members and $50 for non-members. You may pay with a credit card at www.watchmn.org or send a check to: WATCH, 608 2nd Ave S, #465, Minneapolis, MN 55402.

Description: 

This live webinar begins at 3:00 PM EST and is for advocates, clergy, lay leaders, social service providers and will explore some of these lessons and the implications for those doing this work.

For some thirty years, battered women and their advocates have been confronting the epidemic of men’s violence against women. We have learned that survivor safety and empowerment are of primary importance. But— within the context of survivor safety—what is our responsibility to the perpetrator? We know that in order to provide meaningful safety and justice for survivors, we also have to hold their batterers accountable. What does accountability mean? Whose responsibility is it to make that happen? When does holding batterers accountable compromise the safety of survivors? Is the criminal justice response always an appropriate and effective solution? Do batterer intervention programs work? If not, what are our alternatives?

Questions that will be addressed  include:

  • Can advocates trust men to hold survivor safety as a primary concern?
  • Why is it easier for us to focus on what we think the survivor needs to do rather than what the perpetrator needs to do?
  • What are the implications of involving law enforcement?
  • What are proven strategies for holding perpetrators accountable while ensuring survivor safety?
