In partnership with the Ms. Foundation for Women, PreventConnect is pleased to announce the third year of the #PowerInPrevention: Ending Child Sexual Abuse Web Conference Series. With the continuation of an online community to support this movement to end child sexual abuse, #PowerInPrevention transcends from a hashtag statement to the possibility of cultural change. This is the first web conference of the 2014-2015 series.The intersections of vulnerability that occur for children are often most acute when they are apart of marginalized communities. Children of migrant farmworkers are commonly at the center of these intersections because of unique pressures on them and their families. In this web conference, speakers will discuss how they utilize popular education frameworks and principles based on Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed as the basis for their work organizing and mobilizing farm worker communities around child sexual abuse prevention work.

The webinar is part of the Bridging the Gap Webinar Series on sexual assault and domestic violence against people with disabilities and Deaf individuals. This series explores emerging and enduring issues at the intersection of violence and disability; highlighting promising practices for serving survivors with disabilities and Deaf survivors; and fostering a network of support to end violence against people with disabilities.
During this webinar learn about strengths-based interventions that can be utilized in day-to-day work with youth and families who have been impacted by interpersonal trauma. Specific interventions that target stabilization, recovery, and prevention will be highlighted.
First impressions matter when working with sexual assault survivors who have never sought services before. This interactive webinar will focus on orienting survivors to services through a trauma informed lens. Topics will include risk assessments, intake paperwork, language, and explaining advocacy to sexual assault survivors.
Sexual assault advocates based in rural communities are often one of the only resources in the area who have any knowledge about sexual assault. For this reason it often becomes necessary for rural sexual assault advocates to provide advocacy in a broad range of settings. This webinar will outline comprehensive services and provide solutions on how to address the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of rural sexual assault survivors.
Join us for an interactive webinar outlining how agencies can adopt the empowerment model we use with survivors to use for ourselves. Advocates working at rural dual/multi-service agencies are often more isolated from fellow staff members, feel overextended, and often don’t have as much support as they would like, all of which can take a toll on their emotional wellbeing. This webinar will address issues of self-care, organizational trauma, and staff empowerment with a focus on positivity and creating longevity within this work.
Sexual assault support groups can be one of the hardest services to establish at rural dual/multi-services agencies. This webinar will focus on practical tips on publicity, developing your support group, encouraging continued participation, and overcoming the challenges in implementing groups within rural communities.
