Sextortion Webinar Series Mar 28, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET Sextortion refers to the broad category of sexual exploitation in which abuse of power is the means of coercion and can be coupled with the threatened release of sexual images or information. Because the method of coercion is usually non-physical these cases are sometimes thought of as less egregious than cases with hands-on offenses. Join us for our 2 part webinar series to learn more about the impact on victims and how can we respond. Part 1 (Feb 14) and Part 2 (March 28)

Part 2: Sexual Violence in Cyberspace- From Abuse Images to Revenge Porn Mar 29, 2018 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET Sexual violence in cyberspace continues to plague the health and well-being of millions of children and adolescents worldwide. This presentation will review the numerous types of crimes against children mediated by information and communication technology. Participants will learn numerous aspects of victimization and why the long-term outcome for these victims is so much worse that when there is child sexual abuse without visual memorialization. The number of states that have passed new or updated laws criminalizing such behavior has exploded. As these new laws come into effect, investigators and prosecutors need to understand what types of behavior are covered by the laws, how to present them to Judges and juries, and the likely constitutional challenges that will be faced.

Part 1: Sexual Violence in Cyberspace- From Abuse Images to Revenge Porn Mar 15, 2018  2:00 PM - 3:30 PM ET Sexual violence in cyberspace can take on a variety of concrete, yet overlapping forms. “Revenge Porn”, or non-consensual sharing of private images, sextortion, misuse of teen sexting and child pornography are some of the most obvious examples. As these problems have increased in scope in recent years, so too has the interest of the media and legislators around the country. The number of states that have passed new or updated laws criminalizing such behavior has exploded. As these new laws go into effect, investigators and prosecutors need to understand what types of behavior are covered by the laws, how to present them to Judges and juries, and the likely constitutional challenges that will be faced.

What’s in a Frame?: Communicating effectively to get attention for sexual violence prevention THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2018  TIME ZONE & TIME HAWAII (HST/HDT) 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM ALASKA (AKST/AKDT) 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM PACIFIC (PST/PDT) 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM MOUNTAIN (MST/MDT) 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM CENTRAL (CST/CDT) 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EASTERN (EST/EDT) 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM It can be hard to communicate about sexual violence clearly and effectively, and one key fact too often gets lost: sexual violence can be prevented. For the last five years, Berkeley Media Studies Group and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center have partnered to explore what it takes to communicate with different audiences that preventing sexual violence is possible — and there are tangible steps everyone can take to be a part of the solution. During this web conference we will present a framing brief that highlights key lessons on how to effectively frame prevention; share real-life examples of what’s worked and what hasn’t; and discuss challenges and opportunities communicating strategically in the current moment.
