Information:
This two-part webinar will guide officials, step-by-step, through the process of building programs for responding to sexually victimized inmates in prisons. Part I will explain how the new PREA standards can be used as a tool for delivering victim services effectively. The training will focus on the role of community-based rape crisis advocates in providing these services, the benefits of early intervention, and the legal and ethical questions around confidentiality. The webinar will draw on the experiences of prisoner rape survivors to demonstrate to officials how to respond to instances of sexual abuse in a manner consistent with the PREA standards. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.
