Supporting Survivors: Sexual Violence Victimology & Advocacy
As campus sexual violence becomes increasingly addressed by legislators, administrators, and the media, it is helpful to gain a foundational understanding of how victims experience trauma. There are also ways to shape our interactions with survivors to be more supportive of their immediate and long-term needs, not secondarily traumatize or revictimize them, and to aid in their path to healing. One advocate and one administrator, Michelle Issadore, M.Ed., Executive Director of the School and College Organization for Prevention Educators (SCOPE) and Marianne Price, M.S., Associate Vice President for Professional Program Development of The NCHERM Group, will discuss how to balance survivors' needs with campus safety and one's role in the reporting process.
This program will cover:
- Understanding the basics of victimology (how victims experience sexual violence and its psychological effects)
- How to best respond to disclosures of sexual violence
- How to balance your professional role with the duty of care
- How to handle issues of confidentiality
- Review the foundational elements of sexual violence victimology
- Learn best practices for responding to disclosures of sexual violence
