Trauma-Informed Victim Interview (TIVI) for the Justice System, Part 2

Date: Saturday, January 12, 2019

Time: 6:00 am – 7:15 am ChST

Provided By: Battered Women’s Justice Project

Link to register: https://events-na1.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/2361243497/en/events/event/private/2359510337/2424280655/event_registration.html?sco-id=2811392557&_charset_=utf-8

Part 2 will build on what was learned in Part 1 and will focus on how to use the information discovered in the trauma-informed victim interview. By acknowledging that these interviews are structured for the justice system and to effectively build a case, we will start by showing what information and evidence may be uncovered using this interview method, how to facilitate the interview, and how to recognize when and how follow-up questions should be asked. We will listen to interviews and point out the difference between inadequate questions and strong questions. We will discuss the new evidence that has been uncovered by this interview method and how to use it to build a strong case.
 
Presenters: Donna Kelly, Salt Lake County District Attorney, Special Victims Unit Prosecutor and Justin Boardman, Retired Detective, Boardman Training and Consulting

Predicting Intimate Partner Violence Injuries Based on Police Reports

Date: Thursday, January 17, 2019
 
Time: 6:00 am – 7:00 am ChST
 
Provided by: Battered Women's Justice Project
 
Link to registerhttps://events-na1.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/2361243497/en/events/event/private/2359510337/2424280655/event_registration.html?connect-session=na1breez6cv66aoa529pfvdx&sco-id=2855980702&_charset_=utf-8    

Content: Approximately half of all victims of intimate partner violence are injured (Truman & Morgan, 2014). There are several different sociodemographic and incident related factors that increase the likelihood of victims being injured such as being a woman, having children present, and the perpetrator being under the influence of alcohol. In the current presentation, we will look at results from a study of police reports of intimate partner violence incidents in South Carolina during a one-year period. In this project, the aim was to use information from police reports to predict visible injuries in victims of intimate partner violence. A range of sociodemographic as well as situation-specific factors was explored as possibly affecting the likelihood of a victim being injured. Specific recommendations will be discussed in regards to documentation of intimate partner violence in police reports.

Presenters: Marie Karlsson, PhD, Assistant Professor, Clinical Psychology, Murray State University

Adult Survivors as Movement Leaders: Lessons Learned from the Just Beginnings Collaborative

Date: January 24, 2019

Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChsT

Provided by: PreventConnect

Adult survivors of child sexual abuse can be our greatest leaders to find solutions for ending child sexual abuse. Those most impacted are survivors whose sexual orientations, racial/cultural and gender identities have been historically and contemporarily excluded from efforts to end sexual violence. These survivors are leading prevention innovations through storytelling to break shame and stigma, and to interrupt, end and prevent child sexual abuse through viable alternatives to the criminal justice system. Join PreventConnect in this web conference as we learn what it looks like to move toward a culture of healing and survivor-centered accountability by centering survivor leadership.

Date: Friday, January 25, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST
 
Provided by: Battered Women's Justice Project
 
Link to registerhttps://events-na1.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/2361243497/en/events/event/shared/2843846631/event_registration.html?connect-session=na1breez6cv66aoa529pfvdx&sco-id=2854794479&_charset_=utf-8    

Content: While intimate partner homicides are generally discussed as events in which there is a single homicide victim, they often involve multiple homicide victims and even the homicide offender’s suicide. These additional homicide victims are often the children of the targeted intimate partner, though they are also other family members, friends, acquaintances, or others. Sometimes the number of people killed in an intimate partner homicide event reaches four or more, making it a mass murder. This webinar will cover how often multiple victim intimate partner homicides and homicide-suicides occur, the frequency of firearm use in these homicides, and opportunities for intervention.
