If we are serious about ending child sexual abuse, then we need to pay attention to why there are so many adults, adolescents and even children who perpetrate acts of sexual abuse. In this web conference, two national experts, Joan Tabachnick and David Prescott, bring a wealth of information about what we know (and don't know) about those who sexually abuse. Through this brief web conference, we will explore the research available about the adults who have sexually offended as well as the sexually abusive adolescents and children with sexual behavior problems. The speakers will also explore how this information can be/has been useful to the development of prevention programs.

NEARI's mission is to share the cutting-edge research and best practices emerging in our field.   Within this one-hour webinar, Dr. Bengis will explore current best practices for working with adolescents who have sexually abused. Pulling from both clinical experience and the most current research, Dr. Bengis will focus on an individualized whole child approach to assessment and the principles and values that guide effective clinical treatment. This workshop is intended for those new to the field or others who are looking for a short overview of the latest research and thinking. If you have never tried a webinar, it is a chance to both hear a short talk about a specific topic and then be able to ask questions and participate in a discussion in "chat" as different issues are raised. It is a great way to learn, and you don't need to travel out of your office or home to interact with colleagues across the country.

One of the great challenges of rural sexual assault advocacy work is finding appropriate and compassionate medical care for sexual violence survivors. We have such limited healthcare resources in our rural communities. In this 90-minute webinar, Cat Fribley and Kris Bein will help OVW Rural Grantees explore new strategies and tap into new resources for comprehensive sexual violence medical advocacy. We will discuss questions such as:

  • What if our community doesn’t have a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner?
  • What if our community hospital is closing?
  • How can we help survivors access long-term healthcare, not just emergency care?

Holistic healing is a broad term that encompasses many non-traditional therapeutic practices, such as equine therapy, movement and yoga, horticultural therapy, and Somatic Experiencing. For too long, these methods have been a well-kept secret. Now, more and more of us in the anti-violence field are recognizing the benefits of using alternative healing modalities with sexual violence survivors. This 90-minute webinar will introduce OVW Rural Grantees to non-traditional support group and counseling services through the practice experience of three experts from the field. Shamecca Bryant, Emily Tofte, and Corinne Sanchez will discuss their philosophy on using holistic healing methods with survivors of sexual violence. Participants will learn ways to integrate these practices into their rural dual/multi-service agencies with support from board, staff and community members

Some survivors of sexual assault struggle with substance abuse. It’s hard to know how we advocates can help them, especially in rural communities that might not have a lot of resources for survivors or for folks with chemical dependency. Eric Stiles, Rural Projects Specialist at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, will guide us through the addiction issues to consider in our advocacy. In this 90-minute webinar, we will learn about a model for a peer-led support group for survivors who struggle with addiction.

Description: 

Canada’s population is becoming increasingly diverse. However, the provision of culturally responsive services is still a challenge to our society. In particular, community services for partner violence and sexual assault in are insensitive and inadequate for certain groups of people. Individuals from various racial, ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds, different age groups and sexual orientation, continue to express their concerns of having limited access to culturally relevant services. What do service providers need to do to work effectively with diverse people in diverse environments?This webinar will highlight the services provided by the Diversity Outreach and Court Support Program at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, followed by a presentation on the complexity of working with people from diverse cultural background with diverse worldviews and perspectives. The webinar will then explore various strategies that allow service providers to apply a multicultural worldview that responds to increasingly complex environments. It will include a segment on community development principles, relationship building, and learning from the wisdom and lived experiences of the people.
