Reporting Without Re-Victimizing

Reporting Without Re-Victimizing-Webinar

March 18, 2015 2-4 p.m. CST | $30
Summary:Is it possible for news stories to be reported accurately without re-victimizing crime survivors? How can a complicated problem be encapsulated into a short clip? Can we get media partners enthused about prevention? The media can serve as a way to get hopeful messages into the mainstream or can perpetuate old myths. This session begins the conversation about engaging media allies as one prevention strategy. Ethical dilemmas and misinformation that past reporters have faced are highlighted to allow for real world past scenarios to be used for current problem solving.
Presenter:Alison Feigh came to Jacob Wetterling Resource Center (JWRC) initially in 2001 from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She remained with JWRC until 2009 working with students, parents, law enforcement and the media, with the ultimate goal of reducing abductions and abuse of children. She returned to JWRC in 2011, following the completion of her Master of Science in criminal justice at St. Cloud State University.

Instanter Safety Plan Orders

This webinar is open to CASA staff, CASA volunteers and Louisiana child welfare professionals 

Act 486 – (Instanter Safety Plan) 

The 2014 legislative session created the instanter safety plan order as an additional option prior to removal of a child in need of care. The new law provides that if, upon request by the state, the court determines that with the issuance of a safety plan order that the child’s welfare can be safeguarded without removal, the court shall immediately issue a written instanter order directing compliance with the terms of the safety plan. This webinar will discuss the new law and its implications.

Desperately Seeking Attachment: Parenting Traumatized Children and Teens– Part 1

Human beings are social-emotional beings with an innate need to connect and form meaningful relationships. Every interpersonal skill that is required to be successful in creating and sustaining these relationships must be acquired. Trauma, neglect and multiple disruptions in attachment relationships have significant negative impact on a child’s ability to learn these vital interpersonal skills. In fact, many children with histories of trauma develop defensive strategies to avoid interpersonal relationships. Allison Davis Maxon, LMFT, trainer for the Kinship Center in California, will explore the complex emotional and behavioral problems that traumatized children struggle to overcome. Participants will learn how to create, facilitate and sustain the relationships children and teens need to feel connected and whole, including the “10 things your child needs every day to feel valued, connected and empowered.”

Sticks And Stones - Webinar

Sticks and Stones - Webinar

April 8, 2015 2-4 p.m. CST | $30
Summary:Identifying psychological maltreatment is challenging. The child may show no bruises or welts and may be appropriately fed and clothed. Adding to the challenge is that the child may not be able to disclose the maltreatment, as he or she may think that emotional maltreatment is part of normal parenting. Psychological maltreatment is the least reported, identified and prosecuted form of abuse. However, many consider the damage caused by psychological maltreatment to exceed that of other forms of abuse and neglect. This presentation will address the signs and symptoms of child maltreatment and will discuss investigative and prosecutorial methods for dealing with these cases.
Presenter:Amy Russell serves as executive director of Gundersen National Child Protection Training Center (NCPTC), headquartered in Winona, Minn. In this position, Amy provides administrative and programmatic oversight as well as training and technical assistance for child protection professionals. She also serves as a pro bono attorney for children in dependency court, as an expert witness on child sexual abuse in multiple state courts and as an adjunct faculty member in the Child Advocacy Studies Program at Winona State University.
