PRACTICING VAWA/VOCA CONFIDENTIALITY WITHIN MULTI-DISCIPLINARY ORGANIZATIONS
Multi-disciplinary organizations, like Child Advocacy Centers and Family Justice Centers, can improve the community-level response to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking if the organizations provide survivor-centered, trauma-informed services to violence survivors. Access to confidential professionals, such as advocates and health providers, is a key component of trauma-informed services. This webinar will teach participants the federal rules on confidentiality for VAWA and VOCA-funded multi-disciplinary agencies, and address the nuances of implementing confidentiality while facilitating collaboration by law enforcement, government protective agencies, healthcare providers, lawyers, and victim advocates.
Registration has closed. Please contact Kathy at email@example.com for more information.
February 5th 10am CT to 11:30am CT
CONFIDENTIALITY & INFORMATION SHARING NORMS IN SART’S, DART’S & MDT’S
Helping professionals in communities often come together in teams, like SART’s, DART’s & MDT’s, that are designed to ensure particular violence survivors have their needs met and no one slips through the cracks. But when these professionals come to the team meeting, they come from different professional cultures with distinct ethical norms around sharing or not sharing information about individual survivors and their open cases. This webinar will give team members a framework to think about how their information norms may be different from each other, and how they can collaborate with each other in a trauma-informed manner without asking any team member to compromise their own professional values.
Deadline to register is January 29th by 5pm CT
