In this month's webinar, we'll discuss best practices for small and/or multi-service agencies on providing rape crisis services to survivors in facilities that are located far from large cities and towns. We'll review some of the unique challenges of working in rural detention facilities, and discuss ways to work around barriers such as distance and a lack of community response teams. Becca Korby, Executive Director of Healthy Families, a multi-service agency in rural Washington state, will join us to share her strategies for working in a community with multiple needs and limited resources. We'll end with ample time for questions and answers. The webinar is geared toward rape crisis advocates and other community-based service providers, but anyone who works with current or former detainees is encouraged to attend. This series of webinars is being supported by the Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women.
Michelle M. Garcia, Director, Stalking Resource Center, National Center for Victims of Crime will address the often overlooked link between stalking and sexual assault. Stalking is a crime that is often co-perpetrated with other crimes, such as domestic violence and sexual assault. Research supports a connection between stalking and sexual assault--both pre- and post-assault. In this webinar, we will explore the nature and dynamics of stalking, focusing on its intersection with sexual assault. We will also discuss ways in which this information impacts our responses to and services for victims.
