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.

All Communities are Not Created Equal – Prevention Institute @ Webinar
Jul 31 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
How can violence prevention become more equity focused?

This web conference will provide a space for a closer look at enhancing violence prevention work to promote health equity. Based on the framework presented in CDC’s recent publication "A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity: Community Strategies for Preventing Chronic Disease", this web conference will delve into disproportionate outcomes based on race, class, sexual orientation, and ability within the context of violence prevention. Guests will explore opportunities to better address equity issues and support health equity as a part of prevention initiatives.
