Description: 

This JDI webinar will introduce advocates to exciting new opportunities to help incarcerated youth who have been sexually abused. Children and adolescents in detention suffer sexual abuse and harassment at alarming rates, and the effects of this abuse can last a lifetime. That's the bad news. The good news is that the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards offer guidance for corrections facilities and pave the way for rape crisis counselors and other advocates who care about children to provide life-saving help to this underserved population

During the webinar, experts in the fields of sexual abuse and youth detention will discuss the range of services addressed in the PREA standards. Presenters will review some of the challenges of providing care to this population, and to working in detention settings more broadly. Attendees will learn ways to adapt crisis interventions to these settings, as well as other strategies to offer the community standard of care to youth detainees. This webinar will feature advocates who have worked in youth facilities and survivors who have experienced this abuse.

Description: 

This JDI webinar on preventing sexual abuse in youth detention will cover the importance of partnerships between community advocates and corrections officials and the vital role of community advocates in serving incarcerated youth. Leaders from both fields will discuss trauma-informed responses to this abuse and new opportunities to provide services to this underserved group afforded by the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. The speakers will also address related changes in juvenile correction's approach to sexual abuse and next steps for continuing this critically important cultural shift.

The webinar will offer examples of successful community-corrections partnerships, and will feature a conversation between an advocate and corrections leader who are currently working together to end sexual violence against youth behind bars. These discussions will demonstrate how such collaborations can ensure that youth get the help they need, including confidential rape crisis services. This webinar is the second in a three-part series on sexual violence in youth detention.

Who Should Attend:
This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers – rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators – though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to attend. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited.

Description: 

Webinar Description: “Language can never be neutral; it creates versions of reality.”[1] Yet when we discuss sexual assault, we constantly use the language of consensual sex to describe assaultive acts. This language often implies consent and romance, rather than criminal acts. In addition, we 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 webinar 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.Audience: This session will provide useful information and strategies for a wide variety of professionals, including prosecutors and other lawyers, law enforcement, medical professionals, judges, victim advocates, journalists and communications professionals, and others who interact with and write about sexual assault victims. Closed Captioning; Please contact Eliana Theodorou at etheodorou@legalmomentum.org if you require closed captioning at least 72 hours prior to the webinar. Please put “closed captioning” in the subject line of your e-mail.
