Description:Crime victims who interact with criminal justice may find the experience empowering and an aid in their healing journey, or they may experience re-victimization and new traumas from the interaction. What explains the difference in outcome? Survivor empowerment. When survivors are empowered with knowledge of their rights, and they have the ability to activate them, they will have better personal outcomes. Integral to empowering survivors are front-line advocates—both system-based and community-based—working together to support victims. This is a two-week, 10-hour, 100% virtual training course designed for system- and community-based advocates who serve survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, stalking and dating violence as they interact with the criminal justice system. This course will address the fundamentals of advocate collaboration necessary to meaningfully protect survivors’ rights and enhance survivor agency. The course includes synchronous and asynchronous elements that will teach substantive content and allow time to practice the skills necessary to put knowledge into action. Topics Include: Confidentiality, Privilege and Privacy; Crime Victims’ Rights; Trauma-Informed Communication; Communications Across Disciplines; and Strategic Collaboration.
