Instead of our typical monthly peer sharing call, on October 12th from 1-2pm NCCASA’s staff attorney, Skye David and Leah Poole will be hosting a Q and A about the toolkit. Please take your time reviewing the toolkit and come with any questions, comments, and recommendations on sexual violence and stalking.
During this 1.5 hour session, you will be presented with a scenario through which you will gain knowledge and practice using skills to help parents not only support their teens that have experienced sexual violence, but also how to support parents who may be reflecting on their own experiences of abuse and/ or supporting them as secondary survivors.
In this 60 minute webinar we launch a three-part online training program in collaboration with Justice U: Essential Knowledge of Addressing the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in North Carolina: Equipping Critical Roles and Professions with Skills to Prevent and Address CSEC. The intended audience is any North Carolina professional serving children or minors.
This session will focus on what the healing process for DID can look like for a person who has it. This will cover the research, the recommended protocol for healing as well as a lived experience of the process. The live discussion will explore the gaps in healing centering around racial and cultural identity.
This session will include very specific guidance on how advocates can support and assist survivors with DID in all aspects of advocacy work.
One thing we know about adult survivors of child sexual abuse is that they survive and thrive in the world by creating community. This live virtual webinar will explore why creating community is so healing for adult survivors of child sexual abuse and what advocates can do to help survivors create connections and develop physically and emotionally safe relationships.
For many reasons, adult survivors of child sexual abuse have encountered chronic health and wellness issues. Going to healthcare professionals can be very difficult for adult survivors, further complicating their ability to take care of their health. This live virtual session will explore how medical and dental issues arise for adult survivors of child sexual abuse, why getting care can be so challenging, what survivors can do to address it, and how advocates can help.
This will be a two-part series involving a recorded session on the Impact of Physical and Sexual Violence, followed by a live virtual training on Trauma Informed Legal Advocacy. The video is a 40-minute recording exploring how violence becomes trauma and how that trauma can then impact the system and other legal proceedings. The live virtual session will explore how the trauma of oppression further complicates the trauma from violence and is what lawyers and advocates can do in their work with a survivor of sexual violence to ensure their most effective work together.
