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.

Description: 

Presented by Jack Ballantyne, Ph.D. and Pam Marshall, M.S., this webinar will offer advanced education to practitioners on issues involving timing of evidence collection, advances in forensic DNA technology, and factors affecting time since intercourse intervals. At the end of the event, attendees will:

  • Have an increased understanding of timing considerations for sexual assault examination;
  • Recognize that forensic evidence may be available well beyond 72 hours after the assault;
  • Become familiar with advances in forensic DNA technology; and
  • Understand factors that affect time since intercourse (TSI) intervals

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?

Description: 

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.
