In this time of emergence, we are called to reflect on the status quo, to reimagine new possibilities that increase thriving, and shed that which no longer serves us. This 2-part webinar series will offer an opportunity to reflect on the movement to end gender-based violence’s reliance on the criminal legal system and contemplate the consequences of choosing policing, prosecution, and imprisonment as primary solutions to ending violence.
Through this webinar, the presenter will share with the audience her professional experience as a psychologist, educator, and therapist in providing services to the population of women with functional diversity, as well as the experience shared with the Coalition in Puerto Rico that deals with issues of domestic violence, gender violence and sexual assault.
Now more than ever, organizations are grappling with a panoply of needs and concerns amidst great uncertainty. Organizations that concentrate on leadership and operational practices that strengthen collective resilience can learn and grow from these experiences and thereby serve communities better. This roundtable will include a facilitated peer exchange and panel discussions to share strategies to help build and sustain organizational resiliency.
This webinar will present findings from the Urban Institute’s Evaluation of In-prison Programming: Addressing Prior Trauma and Victimization, funded by the National Institute of Justice. Specifically, presenters will elaborate on the services and programming state Departments of Correction offer to address trauma and victimization, including community partnerships with organizations and agencies that work with women who have experienced victimization and trauma, and the challenges associated with providing such services.
