Providing Sexual Assault Advocacy to Incarcerated Survivors
March 4, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Prison Rape Elimination Act (P.R.E.A.) standards have dramatically increased the potential to end sexual assault in detention. For victim advocates, the standards will mean more opportunities to expand services to incarcerated survivors through access to resources and support. Participants will gain a better understanding of the culture of incarceration by identifying high risk inmates, reviewing the PREA standards, discussing the role of trauma and re-victimization, and reviewing reporting options. This 4 hour training will offer tools for providing advocacy services to survivors who are detained and is intended only for sexual assault victim advocates, family advocacy centers, victim services, and correctional agencies.
