We all have many identities and experiences that make us who we are. This is true for LGBTQ victims or crime, as well. This session will review core information about who LGBTQ survivors are, including prevalence and other victimization data. An exploration of common barriers LGBTQ survivors face will engage attendees in thinking broadly about the many intersections associated with gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, disability, age, economics, employment, access to health care, and many other factors that influence LGBTQ victims of crime from accessing services. Participants will leave with clear and concrete ideas of what they can do to better serve LGBTQ survivors of crime.

By attending this training, you will be able to:

  • Define Domestic violence, dating violence, and the dynamics of abuse
  • Describe the scope of internet and digital technologies and electronic communications
  • Analyze how internet and digital technologies have been used to perpetrate domestic violence
  • Identify/Discuss the role of digital technology in providing services to victims and survivors of domestic violence
  • Identify interventions and educational measures targeted to victims of intimate partner violence affected by online abuse

With the rapid advances in Internet and digital technologies, communication and networking have expanded vastly. E-mail and cell phones, for example, have decreased geographic dispersion. Social networking sites such as Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram, have afforded people the opportunity to share ideas, network, and connect or re-connect with others. Despite benefits of these technologies, domestic violence victims and their family members must be aware of the amplified risk these technologies can pose, as abusers may use these mechanisms to control and monitor domestic violence victims movements. This training will provide real-world approaches for educating domestic violence victims and identifying online resources to halt the use of digital technology as a tool of abuse. In this training we will take a closer look at the impact digital technology has on domestic violence- providing real life examples of how technology can be used to establish power and control over a victim.

Vicarious Trauma and Resilience & Workplace Violence

8/10/18 Single Session Registration click here

By attending this training, you will be able to:

  • Identify factors that cause distress in the health and mental health professional who work with trauma survivors
  • Identify the importance of developing a self-care plan for trauma professional
  • Define Countertransference
  • Define Vicarious Trauma
  • Define workplace violence
  • Identify various forms of workplace violence
  • Identify factors that increase your risk or prevent victims from reporting workplace violence
  • Identify and define 3 of 4 consequences of workplace violence

This training will expand health and mental health professionals’ abilities to identify and understand countertransference reactions common in work with trauma survivors, the causes and signs of burnout and compassion fatigue, and factors contributing to vicarious trauma and resilience. Until recently, much of the work in this field has emphasized the negative consequences on professionals of working with trauma survivors. In contrast, vicarious resilience is a concept that has emerged relatively recently to reflect the reality that professionals may experience positive outcomes as well and find that they gain improved skills to reframe and cope with negative events in the process. Working with trauma survivors can be very rewarding and inspiring. This training will provide tools to assist professionals in addressing their own signs of distress and burnout, enhancing their sense of well-being and ability to care for themselves, and building vicarious resilience. Participants will be offered another approach to meet the challenges of trauma work and take care of them through trauma stewardship, which encourages us to reflect deeply on what led us to engage in trauma work, the impact it has on us, and the meaning of and lessons gained from the work. We will also provide an overview of the different types of workplace violence, risk factors, emotional, social, and behavioral ramifications of workplace violence, and specific interventions and policies that have been implemented by organizations to address workplace violence and enhance practitioners’ safety. Violence or abuse experienced in the workplace among healthcare workers, social workers, mental health workers, and other human service workers is a critical issue that many organizations face.
