Sexual Assault

Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Violence Prevention

The Sexual Violence Justice Institute at MNCASA is hosting a webinar, December 14th from 12-1:30 pm CST–Safe Harbors Youth Intervention Project: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Violence Prevention. Participation is free, but preregistration is recommended.

From the site:

Problems associated with sexual exploitation and victimization among homeless and runaway youth impact society on a daily basis. Statistics and anecdotal accounts consistently show that these youth are at great risk of sexual exploitation and sexual violence. In many communities, the services available for these youth are often not coordinated, resulting in inconsistent and disjointed services. The Safe Harbor Youth Intervention Project of Ramsey County, Minnesota (SHYIP) was formed in response to these needs. The goal of the team is to effectively intervene on behalf of these youths and to change the way systems respond to homeless and runaway youth. To date the teams’ efforts has resulted in significant success and notable system change!

The SHYIP team used the 8-Step Protocol Development Cycle (PDC) to assess needs, develop protocols and to design and conduct training initiatives. This webinar will give you an overview of the SHYIP team and how the PDC can help multi-disciplinary teams navigate the waters of collaboration and system change to improve services and outcomes for victims.
