Tuesday March 28th

Technology and Law
1:00pm – 4:30pm
in Raleigh

The NCCASA Training Institute, with the assistance of local host, InterAct, is pleased to offer a NEW training opportunity for those who want to enhance your knowledge, skill and comfort in advocacy as it relates to the often confusing combination of technology and law.

“Technology and Law” will cover two expansive fields that are constantly changing and constantly affecting our work — technology and law.  Recent changes in North Carolina law directly address the use of technology by perpetrators to harass, intimidate, and blackmail others.  Technological advances have also changed the way we communicate with each other — to sometimes dangerous effect.  Training topics include but are not limited to:

  • The use of new technologies to stalk, harass and intimidate
  • Image exploitation and our new “revenge porn” law
  • New NC privacy laws (recently passed and recently failed)
  • The vexing case of teenage sexting
  • Client communications and records (the “no one talks on the phone anymore” problem)

The training will be held on Tuesday March 28th in Raleigh, NC.  The training will be from 1:00pm – 4:30pm with registration from 12:45pm – 1:00pm.  Please note that lunch, drinks and snacks are not provided.  Participants will be provided with the training address after registering.  To register please complete the following form

This training is open to current NCCASA members only and is capped at 35 participants.  Registration must be received by Friday March 24th.  This training will be facilitated by Joseph Polich, NCCASA Staff Attorney.

2:00pm – 3:30pm

NCCASA’s first PREA webinar of 2017 will provide advocates with an in-depth look at the culture and dynamics of jails in North Carolina.

Then, we will hear from 3 jail staff who work directly with PREA in their urban, rural, and suburban facilities about what they want advocates to know about their work. The jail panelists will also be fielding questions from participants, so if you have a question about PREA and serving incarcerated survivors in jails, please include that in your webinar registration. There will also be time for a Q & A with the audience to field additional questions.

Webinar- Making the Shift to Trauma-Informed Services: Understanding Responses to Trauma and Maximizing Service Accessibility
2:00pm – 3:30pm

As we respond to sexual violence and work to build healing spaces for survivors, it is essential that we expand our own understandings of trauma and the impacts that it can have. Leading up to NCCASA’s conference this May, “From Premise to Practice: Applying a Comprehensive Trauma Lens”, this webinar will introduce concepts of trauma and trauma response and will discuss steps that advocates and agencies can take to incorporate elements of trauma-informed care into their work.
During this webinar, we will learn about:

  • Recognizing and understanding trauma responses
  • Increasing accessibility of rape crisis services for survivors who may experience multiple forms of trauma
  • Minimizing potential trauma triggers in our agency environments

Wednesday April 19th

Webinar- The Intersection of Human Trafficking and Sexual Violence
2:00pm – 3:30pm

In recent years, Human Trafficking has been a buzz word in the advocacy and crises response world. It pops up in media reports, documentaries and box office hits worldwide. However, as advocates we realize that human trafficking has been around much longer then a few years, and has an strong link and grounding in the sexual violence in our communities. Attendees to this webinar can expect to delve deeper into discerning what this link looks like and the ways that this link should help inform our work with survivors of human trafficking.  We will look at the shared histories of sexual violence and human trafficking, and discuss that separating sexual violence from human trafficking is problematic.
