Teen Dating Violence: Economic Impact – Education & Earnings @ BWJP Webinar
Oct 29 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Dating violence in adolescence not only takes a physical and emotional toll on young women, it also leads to less education and lower earnings later in life.    A young woman’s educational performance may be hindered by her partner’s actions, such as destroying books or homework or causing injuries that prevent her from going to school.

Researchers analyzed survey data of about 500 single mothers who were, on average, 32 years old and earned less than $7,000 per year. Participants who had been victimized by dating partners as adolescents obtained significantly less education.  Each additional year of education was associated with an extra $855 in earnings.

What Everyone Who Works with Victims Needs to Know About Offenders @ Webinar
Mar 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

There are many key research findings that people who work with sexual abuse victims may be unaware of due to busyness and a lack of reading about offenders. Most will know a few of these facts, but for example the 60% decline in sexual abuse over the past 20 years is fascinating as are the very low recidivism rates after treatment and the statistical effect size of treatment, relationships between offenders and victims, pornography research, risk factors for reoffense, trauma research and some of the actual stories of offenders understandings what they did and why they did it. In this talk disguised clinical stories of offenders will be shared from Dr. Burton book in progress, as well as research on the areas above resulting in a renewed and useful tool kit for anyone working with sexual assault survivors.
