EVAWI is hosting three Regional Conferences in 2017! Each conference offers 5 days of advanced training, with options to register for 2, 3, or all 5 days.
Training to Support Real Change
Recently, a great deal of attention has focused on the many barriers confronting sexual assault victims, and the challenges associated with investigating and prosecuting cases. One critical step in changing this reality is to improve the way victims are interviewed. Better interviews will result in more thorough investigations that improve criminal justice outcomes: Excluding suspects where appropriate, and successfully prosecuting cases where the facts and evidence warrant.
These 3 Regional Conferences are designed to support this transformation. With an understanding of how the brain responds to trauma, and an appreciation for how trauma affects memory encoding, storage and recall, we now have the potential to become truly "trauma informed" in our interviewing practices.
