The ABCs of BAC: Toxicology for Prosecutors and Investigators
Provided by: Aequitas

Link to register: http://www.aequitasresource.org/trainingDetail.cfm?id=295

Date and Time: Friday, August 3, 2018 / 3:00 am – 4:00 am ChST

Alcohol’s unique toxicological effects, widespread use, and ease of access render it the ideal substance to facilitate sexual assault. The same factors that make alcohol such a perfect weapon also present unique challenges for investigators, prosecutors, and other allied professionals in alcohol-facilitated sexual assault (AFSA) cases. An understanding of basic toxicology principles is critical for investigators and prosecutors handling these challenging cases from investigation through sentencing to be able to hold offenders accountable for their criminal behavior.  

This presentation will explain the toxicology of alcohol, as well as drugs, in lay terms that will help participants understand how they affect the body. Topics will include alcohol metabolism, the disproportionate effect of alcohol on women and men, the mechanism of intoxication, an explanation of blackouts vs. pass outs, and other common toxicological issues. It will also explore common issues and challenges related to the investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases where alcohol is present. Click here to register.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), invites proposals from communities to participate in the Domestic Violence Homicide Prevention Firearms Technical Assistance Project (FTAP). The overall objective of the FTAP is to help communities identify challenges limiting a more robust implementation of domestic violence firearms laws in their jurisdictions and assist them in establishing a localized response that is best suited to their communities’ unique needs and characteristics. NCJFCJ seeks proposals from communities reflective of the geographic diversity across the country, including rural, urban, suburban, and tribal settings, as well as sites with differing governing laws.Click here for additional information.

Economic Advocacy IS DV Legal Advocacy IS Economic Advocacy: Learning About and Learning From Trans Economic Empowerment Programs
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Provided by: NW Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse

Content: Economic vulnerability increases vulnerability to domestic violence; and experiencing domestic violence is frequently impoverishing. This is true for all survivors of domestic violence. However, transgender people, especially trans people of color, face pervasive discrimination in education, employment and housing along with unacceptable rates of intimate partner violence. Trans-centered projects are demonstrating how and why legal advocacy aimed at economic empowerment and educational access are critical components of DV Advocacy.This webinar will connect the dots between transphobia, trans people’s experiences of IPV, and why advocacy aimed at economic and educational empowerment is so critical for this population when we think about DV advocacy.

Public Trust: Confronting Law Enforcement Sexual Misconduct in the #MeToo Era
Date: Wednesday, August 15, 2018
Time: 2:00 am ChST
Link to register: https://www.evawintl.org/WebinarRegistration.aspx?webinarid=1054

Course Description
 
Through an examination of case studies, after-action reviews, and the emerging national demand for increased accountability for all forms of sexual misconduct, this webinar will encourage courageous conversations and inspire proactive leadership strategies to address and prevent law enforcement sexual misconduct.

The overwhelming majority of those who serve in the noble profession of law enforcement are professionals that uphold their oath of office. However, the numerous headlines, arrests, convictions, and lawsuits describing horrific acts of sexual misconduct perpetrated by law enforcement officers are incomprehensible. The prevalence of law enforcement sexual misconduct and its impact on public trust cannot be ignored. A predatory sexual offender with the power and authority of the police is an extremely serious breach of the ethics of law enforcement, a violation of the color of law, and a traumatizing victimization for a citizen that officers are sworn to protect.
 
Objectives
 
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
  • Enhance public trust and improve responsiveness to the emerging national demand for prevention and accountability for sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual misconduct. 
  • Broadly define law enforcement sexual misconduct to assist in addressing the wide range of behaviors that can include both criminal and non-criminal conduct. 
  • Examine law enforcement sexual misconduct case studies and identify possible early warning signs that could escalate to law enforcement sexual misconduct. 
  • Identify promising practices for prevention, supervision, and accountability to include an assessment for a law enforcement sexual misconduct policy and code of conduct standard.

Provided by: Futures Without Violence

Date and Time: Saturday, August 18, 2018 / 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST

Futures Without Violence is excited to announce a new safety card available for Muslim youth! The brand new card, Beyond Halal and Haram: Muslims, Sex, and Relationships, is now available to order on our online store.The goal of this safety card is to be both a survivor-centered resource and a useful conversation starter for health care providers, counselors, social workers, mentors, or other adults working with high-school and college-aged Muslim youth who are doing universal education around healthy relationships and assessing for violence.

There is a dearth of resources for American Muslims related to sex and relationships, and some American Muslims may encounter cultural barriers that prevent them from discussing these issues with family and community members. High levels of discrimination against Muslims and Islamophobia also propel the need for more understanding about how to provide trauma-informed, developmentally appropriate, and culturally responsive violence prevention services to this diverse community. Health centers and community-based settings play a crucial role in reaching high school and college-aged American Muslims with messages about healthy and unhealthy relationships.This webinar will describe an evidence-informed universal education intervention on relationships and its impact on health, which can be used in a variety of settings.This intervention features a new safety card specific to American Muslims, which contains information on healthy relationships and sex, guidance and resources for support, how to help a friend, and cultural and religious factors that play into decision-making

This webinar is co-hosted by the National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, HEART Women & Girls, Advocates for Youth, and the Asian Pacific Islander Institute on Gender-Based Violence.

It's My Prerogative: Consent and Healthy Sexuality for People with Disabilities
Link to register: https://events-na11.adobeconnect.com/content/connect/c1/1083844668/en/events/event/shared/1099426672/event_registration.html?sco-id=1899239019&_charset_=utf-8

Provided by: Vera Center on Victimization + Safety

Date and Time: August 22, 2018 / 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChsT

People with disabilities, particularly developmental disabilities, are more likely to experience sexual violence than people without disabilities. Unfortunately, people with developmental disabilities are also less likely to receive information about healthy sexuality and how to identify violence in their sexual encounters. This lack of information contributes to a lack of safety and autonomy. Sexual self-advocacy ensures that people with developmental disabilities understand safe and healthy sexual relationships and the issues associated with safe relationships, particularly consent. This webinar will review the need for sexuality education for people with disabilities, issues around consent to sex for people with disabilities, how to talk to people with disabilities about consent, and resources for discussing sexuality with people with disabilities with the ultimate goal of promoting safe and autonomous sexual relationships.

End Abuse of People with Disabilities Webinars are designed for practitioners and policymakers interested in ending violence against people with disabilities and Deaf individuals. Registration closes two weeks before the webinar date.

Think. Rethink: Mandatory Reporting Practices
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Provided by: NW Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse

Content: Results of a recent survey indicate mandated reporting impacts domestic violence survivors, and most often that impact is detrimental. 50% of survivors in the survey said the mandatory report made things “much worse.” Youth under 18 and trans* and gender variant people were especially impacted – almost half said that they had avoided seeking support for fear that they would be reported. Youth and especially LGBTQ youth are not talking to trusted adults about their relationships because of fear of being reported. In this webinar, we will unpack the impact of mandatory reporting on help seeking and identify practical strategies advocates can use to decrease negative consequences of reporting and increase survivor safety and self-determination.

A comprehensive criminal legal system response to domestic violence crimes designed to stop violence, reduce harm, and save lives.
 

 

Tuesday, August 21, 2018             2:00 - 3:15 pm Central

Leveraging Relationships: 
The Role of the Advocate in Tracking System Response
Over the past four decades of system reform efforts in the criminal legal system, advocates have recognized the importance of developing relationships with system partners. Many advocacy programs have worked diligently to overcome difficult history with judges, prosecutors, law enforcement or others. The more we have learned about practitioner's experiences with responding to domestic violence crimes the more we have come to understand the demands of their jobs and identified common goals.
 
Although some collective goals have been achieved because of these relationships, the values and goals of advocates and system practitioners are not always aligned. Bringing problematic responses and outcomes to the attention of our system partners, while preserving and respecting those relationships, can be a difficult task. Attend our upcoming webinar to hear from two community-based advocates who have taken on this challenging work. Guest presenters (bios below) will talk about:
  • The unique and vital role community-based advocates take on as outside observers of how the criminal legal system responds to domestic violence.
  • How to maintain partnerships with system practitioners even when giving voice to the negative or harmful experiences of survivors with system intervention.
  • Strategies for overcoming challenges and succeeding in improving practitioners' responses and victims' experiences with criminal legal system intervention.
Please email blueprint@praxisinternational.org to share any challenges you are currently facing in your system reform work that you would like to receive feedback on during the webinar.

Date: August 23, 2018
Time: 4:00 am – 5:00 am ChST

The Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center will present an online Expert Q&A discussion with Barbara Rubel on "Addressing Vicarious Trauma for the Individual."

Vicarious trauma (VT) is related to secondary traumatic stress. The victim experiences primary traumatic stress, yet as a victim service provider who uses controlled empathy, you can become secondarily traumatized. By attempting to remain objective, your inner sense of who you are, and your beliefs about feeling safe and trusting others, can change. From not being able to sleep to feeling overwhelmed and not keeping boundaries, VT symptoms can hurt you. It's important to know what contributes to VT, such as professional isolation after hearing trauma-related narratives and being empathetic.

Victim Safety and Offender Accountability: The Intimate Partner Violence Interventions
Time: 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST

Provided by: Battered Women’s Justice Project

Content: Intimate partner violence is often thought of as fundamentally different from other types of violence, but a considerable body of evidence shows that the gravest IPV with respect to the most vulnerable victims tends to be driven by “chronic” offenders who commit a wide variety of crimes at relatively high rates. Research also demonstrates that IPV offenders who do not fit this profile can be deterred by relatively low-level sanctions. The Intimate Partner Violence Intervention (IPVI) aims to create meaningful deterrence for the most chronic and dangerous offenders, while promoting safety for victims. First piloted in High Point, NC, this offender-focused approach has shown promising results in reducing IPV homicides and serious violence as well as repeat offending. This webinar will focus on the strategy’s evidence-based approach to reducing serious IPV through strategic law enforcement, community-based informal social control, and victim-centered advocacy and social service provision as well as key operational elements for successful implementation.
