Take a look at December’s announcements and resources from the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender Based Violence, including resources for self-care, COVID-19, and more.
The National Criminal Justice Training Center is hosting a live webinar and ask the expert series between December 2020 and August 2021 around the topic of Victim-Centered and Trauma Informed Approaches.
“Identify what works and what doesn’t in prevention programs and discuss how to talk to children about CSA. Gather new resources for working with children with significant disabilities as well as research on CSA programs.”
“During the webinar, you will learn the components of developing effective relationships with victim/survivors and offenders including attending to our own biases. Assessing the needs of the client and matching our responses to those needs will also be discussed.”
“We cover topics such as domestic violence, sexual violence, and community violence. We also include lifestyle topics such as Black relationships, financial awareness, and youth topics.”
“You have no control over the stalker’s behavior and are not responsible for what they do. However, it can be useful to think of steps you might take to keep yourself and loved ones safe. This process is called safety planning.”
“In Part 1, we begin by introducing the concept of implicit bias, and then address key questions about how this can influence sexual assault dynamics and responses. In Part 2, we resume this discussion with an exploration of how gender bias affects victim blaming after the sexual assault.”
“When it comes to sexual assault, confirmation bias has long influenced the response of criminal justice professionals in the opposite direction. This is often described as “implicit bias,” and ample evidence suggests that it affects the investigation and prosecution of crime just as it influences responses by the public.”
“This webinar will focus on building a coordinated response to stalking, both within the legal system and beyond, and will promote the education and awareness of stalking as a component of this response.”
“Progressive law enforcement agencies are changing the way they investigate sexual assault. Based on neuroscience research into trauma’s effect on the brain, police organizations have begun to adapt their perspectives on rape victims’ behavior and memory following an attack.”
