After the session, participants will be able to:
1) Explain how bystander intervention strategies contribute to the prevention of sexual and domestic violence 2) Identify at least 3 resources to assist in implementing a bystander intervention strategy to prevent sexual and domestic violence 3) Articulate how to integrate a social justice approach into a bystander intervention strategy to prevent sexual and domestic violence

On February 7, 2013, at 1pm EST, the Children's Bureau of the Administration for Children and Families, US Department of Health and Human Services, will host the 1 hour Webinar, "Child Maltreatment 2011 - Key Findings and Expanded Discussion" to expound on the findings reported in "Child Maltreatment 2011". The report presents national data about child abuse and neglect known to child protective services agencies during fiscal year 2011. Among the findings:
Children in the age group birth to 1 year experienced the greatest rate of victimization.
Boys accounted for 48.6 percent, girls for 51.1 percent of victimized children. In the remaining 0.3 percent of cases, the gender of the victim was not known.
Children from three races/ethnicities comprised 87 percent of victims—white (43.9 percent), Hispanic (22.1 percent), and African American (21.5 percent).
The September 18th webinar will focus on using these tools and concepts for child maltreatment prevention and will feature demonstrations and discussions about linkages to sexual abuse and intimate partner violence prevention led by a child maltreatment prevention practitioner.
This webinar will address typical and atypical findings in child sexual abuse evaluations. Common and not-so-common findings, including injury and disease process, will be discussed in a case review format. What can and cannot be testified to regarding these findings will also be reviewed.
Domestic child sex trafficking is among the most heinous abuses of children, but because of a lack of awareness and the hidden nature of this vulnerable population, survivors are often criminalized and placed behind bars when they are in fact victims of crime. Please join OJJDP’s National Training and Technical Assistance Center, and the National Girls Institute for the Webinar, “Child Trafficking, Girls, and Detention: A Call to Reform,” on September 10, 2013, from 2:00–3:30 p.m. ET. Presenters will share information about how in many states, victims of domestic child sex trafficking are being arrested and detained for juvenile prostitution and prostitution-related offenses; the victims’ need for trauma-informed, gender specific services instead of being subjected to conditions of confinement that exacerbate their trauma; and the largely hidden nature of this crime, which causes many victims to go unidentified and to fall through cracks in our juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The presenters will also discuss what juvenile justice facility staff can do to identify and assess for commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking within existing caseloads, so they can connect these youth with vital services and interventions.
