Information:
This Just Detention International
(JDI) webinar on preventing sexual abuse in youth detention will cover the importance of partnerships between community advocates and corrections officials and the vital role of community advocates in serving incarcerated youth. Leaders from both fields will discuss trauma-informed responses to this abuse and new opportunities to provide services to this underserved group afforded by the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards. The speakers will also address related changes in juvenile correction's approach to sexual abuse and next steps for continuing this critically important cultural shift.

This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers - rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators - though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to attend. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited.
