The SAKI project has a webinar coming up, Victim Notification: Safety and Privacy Planning. It’s an issue we probably don’t give enough consideration, so although it leans a bit more advocacy, I think it’s a great one for any member of a SART. The session will be held October 23rd at 2pm ET. They archive their sessions, so it will be available online if you cannot attend the live event. From the website:
Safety and privacy planning has been recognized as a strong consideration for cold case sexual assault victim notifications in the sexual assault response process. Two presenters from the Salt Lake City, Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenal Justice will address why safety and privacy planning is an important consideration for sexual assault survivors. Additionally, the presenters from this SAKI site will speak to strategies for implementing this concept, including, but not limited to, physical safety, emotional safety, privacy planning, court privacy, confidentiality, and civil orders of protection.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be better able to:
1. Identify and define the need for Safety and Privacy Planning.
2. Discern the difference between Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence victim needs.
3. Gain an understanding of physical safety, emotional safety, privacy planning, court privacy, confidentially, and civil orders of protection.
