Domestic Violence-Related Mass and Spree Killings
Provided by: National Domestic Violence Fatality Review Initiative

Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019
 
Time: 6:00 am – 7:30 am ChST

Content: Dr. Websdale will define mass and spree killing and explain the differences between familicidal, felonious, and non-felony related forms of these offenses. The Webinar will concentrate on two forms of "public" mass and spree killings. The first form consists of those cases where the complex dynamics of domestic violence are of central significance and appear to be the principal precipitant of the killings. These cases involve offenders killing former or current spouses/partners and/or those such as family law attorneys, allied professionals, and/or friends who may have supported the spouse or partner. The second form involves those public mass killings, usually shootings, where domestic violence forms but one aspect of the case but may nevertheless be central to developing an understanding of the killings. Dr. Websdale will use case illustrations to flesh out themes across case types, examining, for example, the gendering of these offenses, the signaling of offenses, histories of intimate terrorism, planning and preparation, the possible role of mental illness, the social isolation of offenders, fascination and proficiency with weaponry, threatening changes in the life circumstances of offenders, and the role of suicidal feelings, depression, rage, extreme hatred, and vengefulness.
 
Presenter: Dr. Neil Websdale, Director, Family Violence Institute, Northern Arizona University

Provided by: Futures without Violence

Date: Wednesday, April 4, 2019
 
Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

Domestic violence and sexual assault advocates play a critical role in identifying the intersection of intimate partner violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in their work with clients. Recognizing these intersecting dynamics allows advocates to further assess the needs of survivors and provide the best referrals for services and support.

 As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:
 
  • Define intersections of human trafficking, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault, when supporting an adult survivor of violence.
  • Explore tools to assess the needs of survivors related to the intersections of DV/SA and human trafficking.
  • Identify the key resources and partnerships required to support survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking.

The web conference will also provide an overview of the Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017, effective February 14, 2018, and the steps leaders can take to ensure that their programs are meeting the requirements. Links to examples of organizational prevention policies will be provided, as well as sample planning documents to help leaders assess your programs' greatest needs and strengths.

Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Human Trafficking
Provided by: Futures Without Violence

Date: Friday, April 12, 2019
 
Time: 4:00 am – 5:00 am ChST

Webinar Overview: 
For many survivors of trafficking, employment opportunities and income insecurity are the immediate and primary concerns upon exiting a trafficking situation. While employment is key to the long-term well-being of trafficking survivors, survivors regularly face challenges in accessing high-quality jobs and careers. While there are opportunities that survivors of trafficking victims can pursue to gain the information, skills, and connections needed to secure safe and sustainable employment, these workforce development programs often lack the training and practices to effectively support survivors of trafficking with complex barriers.
 
To improve employment outcomes for survivors of trafficking, the Promoting Employment Opportunities for Survivors of Human Trafficking project seeks to help victim service providers identify relevant federal, state, and local workforce development resources in a community; foster collaboration between victim service providers and workforce development programs; and share best practices and models for training workforce development programs on trauma and human trafficking. This webinar will introduce OVC victim service grantees to this new training and technical assistance project, what resources and tools will be developed, and opportunities for training and technical assistance.

Time: 4:00 am – 5:30 am ChST

There are often lifelong and devastating consequences for children who have been traumatized by witnessing domestic violence against a parent or caregiver.

This webinar considers ways to recognize how trauma impacts children and offers ways to support healing and resiliency to them in collaboration with their parent. Inter-generational trauma and culturally-based approaches of Native people provide the framework for this webinar.

Healthy Moms Happy Babies: Healing Approaches to Preventing and Responding to Domestic Violence in Home Visitation Programs
Provided by: Futures Without Violence

Date: April 25, 2019

Time: 3:00 am – 4:30 am ChST

Many home visitation and early childhood staff struggle with how best to address issues of domestic violence (DV) among their clients. According to the CDC, 1 in 4 women will experience DV in their lifetime. Research has demonstrated as many as 50% of home visited low-income mothers have experienced DV. The impact of DV on parents' and children's physical and mental health and risk for substance use and persistent perinatal depression is well documented. Healthy Moms/Happy Babies, now in its fourth edition, is an interactive curriculum that addresses the barriers and difficulties staff experience in addressing DV. We support the field with attuned approaches to DV for survivors that were developed in concert with communities who are most affected. In this webinar, we address how personal and or vicarious trauma or abuse may impact our ability to do this work. Specific strategies and tools, both personal and organizational, will be presented to address the needs of front-line staff and managers so that they feel adequately situated to hear a positive disclosure of abuse. The second portion of the training reviews DV prevalence and impacts, and introduces Futures Without Violence's CUES intervention for staff to use with participants. The CUES intervention is a simple, strength-based universal education approach for addressing DV that taps into clients existing capacity for empathy and altruism, to allow them to create change for themselves and others that may be affected by DV. The training is solution-focused, with practical and culturally adaptive strategies to help attendees put practices into place immediately and to leave the webinar inspired and motivated to make a difference.

Description: Domestic violence and community-based advocates are in a unique position to discuss with their clients short- and long-term health needs related to domestic violence (DV) and human trafficking (HT) and promote a culture of wellness and healing. By building staff capacity and growing local partnerships with community health centers, advocates can increase their clients’ access to health care by offering: health insurance enrollment and facilitated clinic appointments for primary care, reproductive health and substance use coercion; offering over-the-counter medication; and promoting yoga, sleep and self-care while in program/shelter.
