The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released a new guidance document, Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches, to assist prevention practitioners in making decisions about balancing the delivery of violence prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local contexts. The guidance explores how evidence-based approaches to preventing violence work, understanding the essential elements of a prevention approach, and how this knowledge can be used to effectively select, deliver, adapt and evaluate approaches. This web conference will present major concepts in this guidance and highlight practical tools that practitioners can use to estimate the essential elements of a prevention approach and track and evaluate adaptations in their own settings.

Supporting Women and Girls' Leadership in Sport to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence

TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2017

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Sports have enormous influence on culture and can play an important role in preventing sexual and domestic violence. Youth sports, in particular, teach youth more than just how to play the game. Life lessons such as teamwork, leadership skills, accountability, and self-reflection can all be facilitated through participation in sport and sports teams. Efforts to prevent sexual and domestic violence through sport typically target men and boys, but what about women and girls? Sport has the ability to lift up athletes on women and girls' teams as leaders who play an important role in demanding and reinforcing a culture that denounces violence and supports healthy individuals, relationships, and communities. Join PreventConnect and Raliance to explore these possibilities and to learn about a new culturally competent and research-based prevention program for high school girls' sports teams called, "Student Leaders and Athletic Youth" (SLAY). The lead author of the program and student-athlete participants will share curriculum content, evaluation results, and highlight an RPE-funded project at a diverse urban high school in Seattle as a case example. The author will also share about new opportunities for piloting the program and evaluation.

A Safe Place to Call Home: Transforming the Physical/Built Environment for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention

TIME ZONE & TIME

HAWAII (HST/HDT) 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

EASTERN (EST/EDT) 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Place matters for sexual and domestic violence prevention. Protective physical/built environments can help achieve community-level results and significantly influence individual behavior. "Place factors" like a neighborhood looking and feeling inviting and safe or having parks and open space can enhance factors in the sociocultural environment (e.g. sense of community, strong social networks and neighbors helping each other). In this interactive web conference, we will continue to build on the THRIVE framework to explore the role sexual and domestic violence prevention practitioners can play in helping design spaces that promote safety. Guests will share why they are focused on place-based efforts for sexual and domestic violence prevention and what they are specifically doing in communities.

HOSTS: Ashleigh Klein-Jimenez and Meghna Bhat, PreventConnect and CALCASA

FACILITATORS: Alisha Somji and Lisa Fujie Parks, Prevention Institute

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify how place-based strategies can support protective factors for sexual and domestic violence prevention
  • Highlight ways to identify community design issues and advocate for change
  • Provide examples of on the ground place-based strategies
  • Engage in a candid discussion on transforming the physical/built environment for prevention

  • Kathryn Travers, Executive Director, Women in Cities International

A Team Approach: Child Life's Role in Pediatric Sexual Abuse Cases

Nov. 1, 2017, 2pm ET

This webinar will focus on the collaboration between Pediatric Forensic Examiners and Certified Child Life Specialists (CCLS), particularly on the role of Child Life Specialists during the sexual abuse medical forensic exam. As trained medical professionals, Child Life Specialists utilize knowledge of child development, stress and coping theories, and family systems theories to promote positive outcomes during pediatric sexual abuse examinations. Working alongside Pediatric Forensic Examiners, Child Life Specialists are able to promote positive coping through rapport building, preparation, and developmentally appropriate divisional activities. During this webinar, the audience will learn about the role Child Life Specialists play while supporting staff, patients, and families during pediatric medical forensic exams. After the webinar, audiences should be able to: implement basic knowledge of child development theories during medical forensic exams, understand the role of child life, and name three successful outcomes that indicate positive coping during medical forensic exams.

How Language Helps Shape Our Response to Sexual Violence

August 10, 2017, 2pm ET

When discussing sexual violence, we often use the language of consensual sex to describe assaultive acts or use euphemisms, erotic, or affectionate terms to portray violent acts. This language implies consent and romance, rather than criminal acts. In addition, we tend to describe violence against women in passive terms, which allows the perpetrators of this violence to remain invisible and unaccountable. We also use language that objectifies or blames sexual assault victims. This interactive session will explore the language of sexual assault: how we talk about and write about this crime. We will discuss specific examples of the language we use and explore how to discuss sexual assault in a way that more accurately depicts the crime. This session is applicable to all members of the response team who work with survivors of sexual and domestic violence.
