Description
Join us for Help is on the Line, an exciting webinar on providing crisis hotline services to incarcerated survivors. This webinar will address the challenges facing prisoner rape survivors who seek support, especially those who are held in rural detention facilities. Not only are crisis services far and few between, but many local programs have limited experience in — and limited funding for — giving services behind bars.  We will focus on how rape crisis centers can adapt their existing hotline for a correctional setting. It will cover strategies for working with inmates, including how to ensure that calls are kept confidential.  The webinar will feature JDI staff, as well as a rape crisis advocate from a rural program who has provided support to incarcerated survivors.

Description
Please join us for this enlightening webinar to learn who we are talking about when we say “incarcerated survivors.” Who are they? Are their needs different from survivors “on the outside?”  Do you have concerns about whether or not your advocacy skills will transfer into a corrections setting, to working with male survivors, or to working with survivors who may also have been perpetrators? If so, this is the webinar for you. During this webinar, we will unpack some common misconceptions about people in detention and you will hear from incarcerated survivors and advocates who have worked with them about the power of advocacy in their healing. The webinar will feature speakers Just Detention International (JDI) as well as rape crisis advocates and survivors.
