In as Confidential a Manner as Possible:
Community-based Advocacy in Confinement
Date / Time: Jun 24, 2019 - 2:00pm - 3:15pm EDT
Registration Deadline: Jun 24, 2019 - 11:00am PDT
Join the PREA Resource Center (PRC) and the Victim Rights Law Center for a webinar on providing confidential services to sexual assault survivors in confinement. After holding two national focus groups to learn from community-based victim service providers about the successes and challenges in their work, they will be sharing their findings on how to support survivors "in as confidential a manner as possible."
This webinar will be presented by Brenda V. Smith, American University Washington College of Law and Carol Schrader, Esq., Victim Rights Law Center.
Anyone working in confinement settings or collaborating with correctional facilities to eliminate sexual abuse in confinement is welcome to participate in this webinar. It will be especially useful for community-based victim service providers who support sexual abuse survivors in confinement or who are interested in starting this work. In addition, confinement facility staff members who want to develop or enhance relationships with community-based victim service providers in order to carry out their obligations under the PREA Standards will benefit from this educational opportunity.
