" Dr. LaDonna Nicole Butler, LMHC Founder/Executive Director - The Well for Life, LLC OBJECTIVES Describe the components of an effective sexual assault prevention and response program. Discuss strategies to enhance sexual assault prevention and education components on center. Identify creative ideas to engage individuals and communities in sexual assault prevention initiatives. The Facts SEXUAL ASSAULT Statistics Sexual Assault is defined as: any type of sexual activity

that you do not agree to, including: inappropriate touching, vaginal, anal, or oral penetration, sexual intercourse that you say no to, rape, attempted rape, child molestation. Sexual assault can be verbal, visual, or anything that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or attention. Department of Health & Human Services SEXUAL ASSAULT Can be verbal, visual, or anything that forces a person to join in unwanted sexual contact or attention. Examples of this are voyeurism (when someone watches private sexual acts), exhibitionism (when someone

exposes him/herself in public), incest (sexual contact between family members), and sexual harassment. It can happen in different situations: in the home by someone you know, on a date, or by a stranger in an isolated place. UNDERSTANDING SEX UAL VIOLENCE Sexual Violence happens in every community. How you understand and talk about it matters. Become an agent for change by using your voice to shift how others think about and react to this critical issue. Sexual Violence Impacts Everyone Victims often know the person who sexually assaulted them

Victims are never to blame Sexual Assault is often not reported Healing and Justice look different for every survivor You can support Survivors Embrace your Voice Its on US - https:// Resource Link The month of April has been designated Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) in the United States. The goal of SAAM is to raise public awareness about sexual violence and to educate communities and individuals on how to prevent sexual violence.

The 2018 Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign focuses on how we talk about sexual assault. Resource Link: https:// nal508.pdf SART & JOB CORPS Each center should formally establish a SART, which is inclusive of both prevention and response activities, and identify member roles and responsibilities. It is suggested that the team leader/coordinator

be a full-time center employee (e.g., family planning coordinator, career counselor). See Health and Wellness Approach to (1) Family Planning and (2) Sexual Assault and Prevention TAG for information on creating a SART. THE COMPONENTS OF SART TEAM Establish a program for sexual assault that includes:

A team approach Prevention and education Counseling and treatment Follow-up care Reporting mechanisms TRAINING Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.

information Victim Services Practitioner Training State The Office of Attorney General, Florida Crime Prevention Training Institute (FCPTI) established the Victim Services Professional Development Program to provide comprehensive victim services/victim advocacy training for law enforcement personnel, state attorney office staff, private non-profit victim advocates and other professionals in the field of victim services. FCPTI is pleased to offer training opportunities in the TUITION FREE. ONLINE TRAINING Free Victim Assistance Training Online is a basic victim advocacy web-based training program that offers victim service providers and allied professionals the opportunity to acquire the basic skills and knowledge

WE MAKE A DIFFERENC E Each center must define standards for acceptable and unacceptable sexual behavior. The standards should both create and support comfortable learning and living environments, and protect individuals from exploitative, coercive, and traumatic experiences. The Center Director must ensure that center rules for sexual behavior are equally applied to all students (and staff). During the Introduction to Center Living, students must be informed of the centers standards regarding sexual behavior. POLICY Job Corps policy [PRH-6: 6.11, R6 (a, b)] requires that each Center Director:

1)Establish a program for sexual assault risk reduction, response, and follow up care 2)Develop a team response to sexual assault that involves center staff and outside resources. 3)Report sexual assaults: To law enforcement authorities as required by state and local law As significant incidents (see Chapter 5, Section 5.5, Management and Reporting of Significant Incidents) PREVENTION AND EDUCATION Orientation During orientation to health and wellness services (during Introduction to Center Living), students should be given introductory

information about the SART and the sexual assault prevention and response program, including where to go for help. Wellness Education Program (WEP)The human sexuality segment of WEP should include information on sexual assaults and risk reduction. TEAP Education ClassesThe TEAP specialist should provide information to all students regarding the connection between alcohol and drug use and sexual assault. Informal Discussion GroupsSmall group discussions, generally held in

the dormitory, may be another means of teaching students about sexual assault risk reduction. Consent Asking Peer Education Groups Gay Straight Alliance Integration with SGA Training Residential & Counseling Teams RA Counseling Meeting Managers Meeting MDT Meetings
