Description

The work of a Sexual Assault Nurse/Forensic Examiner (SANE/SAFE) is important to a community’s Sexual Assault Response Team. The practice requires skill in providing care for patients who experienced trauma, gathering medical history along with evidence for possible criminal investigations. Opportunities for peer review and support are limited, particularly in communities with part-time SANE practitioners.

Mosaic Georgia now offers monthly Peer Review Online sessions for Adolescent/Adult Forensic Medical Exams (FME).  Peer Review Online (PRO) enables Sexual Assault Nurse/Forensic Examiners (SANE/SAFE) to present a case and discuss interpretation of findings, complications with the process, review documentation, request and provide feedback.

Peer Reviews are moderated by experienced SANEs to foster an environment of shared learning and skill-building. The PRO SANE program will utilize Zoom, a HIPAA-compliant web-conferencing platform. Our online peer reviews are offered every 3rd Wednesday of each month, as follows: March 18, April 15, May 20, and June 17 at 12:30pm ET.

SANE/SAFEs Earn 1 Continuing Education Credit for each PRO/SANE session.

Description

We know that we are not the only support system for survivors of sexual violence. Friends, family, and partners of survivors provide emotional care and connection to survivors in our rural communities, even when they don’t have a relationship with our program. Friends and family of survivors have unique needs independent of the survivors they love and we can provide outreach and services to meet these needs. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project for this interactive webinar to learn more about reaching friends and family of survivors and to practice the skills necessary to support the whole community.

Description

Rural advocacy programs typically have large spread-out service areas and a small staff to provide services to survivors of sexual and domestic violence. This reality for rural programs can make it difficult to provide outreach and services to all of the many small communities within the larger service area. This webinar will focus on mobile advocacy, hiring practices and organizational culture, and outreach to rural communities. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project to learn more about methods of structuring rural programs in order to best serve the whole community.

Description

Despite the prevalence of stalking—a crime affecting some 6-7.5 million people at some time in their lives—advocates and other allied professions responsible for working with stalking victims may feel hampered by lack of training and resources to address the crime of stalking in a comprehensive manner. This webinar will address common tactics used by perpetrators, identify stalking-specific risk assessment tools to better determine the level of threat to victims, identify the intersection of stalking and sexual violence, and discuss effective safety planning strategies particular to survivors in rural areas. Please join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project and Jennifer Landhuis from the Stalking Prevention Awareness & Resource Center (SPARC)  to learn more about stalking in rural communities.

Description

Rural communities have a much higher percentage of older adults than urban communities. Are you curious why they aren’t walking in your doors asking for services? Your program is not alone. Sexual violence does happen to older adults and not surprisingly there are barriers for those survivors in seeking services. Join Leah Green from the Resource Sharing Project to learn more about how to support older adult survivors in rural communities. Topics will include risk factors, accessibility, communication, and why rural communities are poised to help this vulnerable population.
