Victim Rights Law Center Leading a New Response to Sexual Violence Safety Planning with Sexual Assault Survivors Webinar + 30-minute Share and Learn Session Thursday, December 12th 11:30am-1pm Pacific /2:30-4pm Eastern Whether it is a single incident or an ongoing pattern of abuse, sexual assault can undermine a victim’s physical and emotional safety— effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security. This 60-minute webinar will address the importance of safety planning for victims of non-intimate partner sexual assault, explore how safety planning for these survivors may be different than safety planning with domestic violence victims, and provide tips for using the VRLC's OVW-approved safety planning guides, which include population-specific guides to safety planning with LGBTQ survivors, on college campuses, and with survivors experiencing homelessness. The webinar will include a discussion of strategies for protecting victim privacy, discussing emotional safety, and providing survivor-centered safety planning. Following this webinar, we will immediately host a Share and Learn session for participants who wish to deepen our conversation with case-specific strategies and tips on safety planning with survivors of sexual assault.
