Description: 

The Center on Victimization and Safety at the Vera Institute of Justice is pleased to announce the Bridging the Gap Webinar Series, a webinar series on sexual assault and domestic violence against people with disabilities and Deaf individuals.The Bridging the Gap Webinar Series will explore emerging and enduring issues at the intersection of violence and disability; highlight promising practices for serving survivors with disabilities and Deaf survivors; and foster a network of support to end violence against people with disabilities.This webinar series is designed for practitioners and policymakers interested in addressing sexual and domestic violence against people with disabilities and Deaf individuals. This webinar series is open to any recipient of U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women funding, their subcontractors and partners, as well as organizations interested in becoming a recipient.Each webinar in this series is FREE, but does require registration for each individual webinar. If you have additional questions, you may email us or call us at 212.376.3096.The “Picture Guide to the Exam after Sexual Assault” series was developed as a part of the Illinois Imagines project to support survivors with disabilities during the forensic exam.  We know that some women with disabilities may not have had access to gynecological care in the past, and the pelvic exam provided with the healthcare exam and evidence collection process may be her first.  This can add a lot of stress, fear, and additional trauma to an already overwhelming experience.  Additionally, medical staff and victim advocates may not have experience responding to the needs of survivors with disabilities. With these thoughts in mind, three sets of pictorial guides and support materials were developed (one for medical staff, victim advocates and self-advocates) to provide education and support.  This webinar will focus upon:• How the tools were developed• How to use the tools• How to access the tools
