Time: 12:00 PM  1:15 PM PT (3:00 PM  4:15 PM ET)
Speaker: Rebecca Khalil, J.D.

Sexual assault in the military is an issue that has drawn national attention. Many interventions to prevent and respond to this epidemic have taken place.

Date: Wednesday, October 15, 2014
Time: 12:00 PM  1:15 PM PT (3:00 PM  4:15 PM ET)
Speaker: Amy Liu, J.D.

This training will discuss the unique challenges that arise in the context of incapacitated or deceased victims (whether they are deceased from the crime itself or otherwise). Among the topics to be covered: the use of in-life photos during trial and victim impact; model rights directives which are critical for loved ones to be able to exercise the victims' rights; survival of privileges; restitution; and more.

The justice systems are predominately designed for able-bodied victims who speak English.

Webinar Summary:

 

This webinar is hosted in conjunction with the The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which operates as the national clearing house for missing children in the United States. Child sex trafficking victims are currently missing and actively being exploited. 

 

The first step toward victim recovery is establishing a coordinated reporting system that increases the visibility of child sex trafficking victims and the possibility of identification. Additionally, successful response systems require collaborative, multi-disciplinary coordination that includes child welfare, law enforcement, children's advocacy centers and specialized services and shelter placements. 

 

This presentation will provide the audience with the following:

  • Child sex trafficking risk factors and exploitation dynamics
  • Overview of NCMEC resources available to missing kids identified as victims of child sex trafficking
  • Importance and guidance on reporting children missing from child welfare to NCMEC
  • Guidance on establishing a successful recovery plan including trauma-informed approaches
  • Support available through NCMEC on proactive and reactive victim advocacy and services
