Webinar Overview: 

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. The presenters will highlight promising approaches and sample tools to identify these intersections, assess survivor needs, and best refer clients to support and referrals across their community.
 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.
