Event Abstract: This full-day training will provide corrections staff with the tools and information to develop victim services programs that are compliant with the new Prison Rape Elimination Act standards. Participants will gain the skills necessary to create a comprehensive, trauma-informed response that includes professionals from medical, mental health, legal, and law enforcement fields.Event Description:A victim-centered response integrates medical and mental health interventions with a robust process of investigating and prosecuting cases. To establish a coordinated response, corrections agencies must have the following: agreements with local rape crisis programs; a staff training curriculum; plans for emergency and long-term medical and mental health care; many ways for staff to intervene in, and for survivors to report cases of sexual abuse; a strategy for implementing the model national protocol for evidence collection; and MOUs with investigating and prosecuting authorities. This training will prepare agencies to put each of these pieces into place.The training will feature dynamic group exercises, expert panels, survivor testimonies, and interactive discussions to encourage the sharing of expertise and strategies. Attendees will also break into small groups based on the type of facility in which they work (prisons, jails, lock-ups, youth and community corrections facilities) to discuss issues that are specific to their detention setting.A training focused on inmate education will be held the previous day on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, at the same location. Participants are encouraged to attend both. For more information click here.Eligibility Requirements:Applicants may apply for this training individually, but are encouraged to apply as part of a team of two or more per agency.

Agencies can represent federal, state and local levels of government, as well as Tribal authorities. Suggested attendees include: PREA coordinators, incarcerated victim service coordinators, prosecutors, lead investigators, medical and mental health staff, and correctional trainers. Each applicant from a facility will need to complete an application.Supplemental Materials:Please submit the following supplemental materials with your application:

  1. An organizational chart of your agency
