Our theme for this year’s conference is “Bringing Justice to the System.” The concept of “justice” is elusive to many survivors. We all have a role in helping victims of sexual violence find “justice” in a system that is historically weighted to protect the interests of the accused. Victim advocates, law enforcement, medical personnel, educators, therapists, and other service providers can all make a positive difference in the outcome experienced by survivors. This conference will help energize, educate, empower, encourage, and embolden us to do our best work in our respective disciplines.
WCSAP’s Parenting Plans and Family Violence: Keeping Kids Safe Webinar
Presenters: Leslie Savina, Northwest Justice Project
Date: February 26, 2013
Time: 10:00 am to 11: 30 am
Workshop Description: Family court proceedings can be overwhelming and frustrating for nonoffending parents. As advocates for these parents and their sexually abused children, we may feel helpless when the courts do not seem to understand the dynamics of sexual abuse or fail to take action to protect children. In this webinar, Ms. Savina will focus on parenting plans as a tool for keeping children safe in custody cases.
WCSAP’s Sexual Assault and Addiction Webinar: Register Now!
Presenters: Danika Roberts
Date: February 7, 2013
Time: 1:00 pm to 2: 30 pm
Workshop Description: This webinar will focus on the obstacles and solutions to survivors overcoming addiction and what role advocates play in that process. Identifying both the survivor as unique and addiction as a disease that can begin as a coping strategy to trauma, it is our responsibility to understand how these interconnect with one another. At this webinar, we will discuss how to work in a direction that incorporates defining the needs of the survivor, exploring the role of addiction, collaboration and consultation, and increasing advocacy skills to support survivors in this dual identity.

Criminal Jurisdiction in Indian Country
Presenting a webinar session on Criminal Jurisdiction In Indian Country, with Dorma Sahneyah, JD, NIWRC Program Specialist, and Leslie Hagen, National Indian Country Training Coordinator, Department Of Justice, EOUSA/OLE.
In everyday life, a women’s safety depends largely on the local government’s authority to establish strong laws criminalizing violence against women and to effectively police, prosecute, and punish offenders convicted under these laws. In Indian country, federal legislation and case law have left tribal governments with far less legal authority to protect their citizens/women than any other local government. Join us to walk through the maze of criminal jurisdiction existing today in Indian Country.

Presented by: Heidi Notario-Smull, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator, National Latin@ Network of Healthy Families and Communities.
Women with disabilities and Deaf women experience violence at greater rates than the general population.

Washoe County CARES/SART Training
April 27th 8a-5p
The intersection of medicine and law can be challenging and, at times daunting for both professions. Medical care providers are often anxious about going to court and as a result may be ill prepared. Attorneys are faced with the interpretation of specialized medical data and inaccessible medical providers. We hope to address these concerns in this training by combining medical and legal faculties. We aim to provide information and education to those involved in presenting forensic evidence in court.
