Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Teen Dating and Sexual Violence Prevention

Approximately 1 in 5 female high school students report being physically and/or sexually abused by a dating partner. Nearly one-half of adult sex offenders report committing their first sexual offenses prior to the age of 18. In many cases, students are the first to know about instances of abuse at school and away from school grounds.

Schools have the opportunity to integrate teen dating violence prevention education into existing school curricula in many ways.

What schools can do – Teen Dating Violence Prevention Education

• Schools are encouraged to partner with domestic violence and sexual assault organizations to provide prevention education to students.

• Schools can ensure that students have access to supportive services by collaborating with community-based organizations, particularly rape crisis centers and domestic violence service providers. These providers have experience and expertise in teen dating violence and various forms of sexual assault.

• Schools have the opportunity to interrupt the cycle of violence by connecting victims, perpetrators, and bystanders to community services. Schools are strongly encouraged to make these connections and provide facilitated referrals to counseling, advocacy and educational organizations.

• Violence prevention education should be implemented not at the expense of academic achievement, but as a means of ensuring it.

S.H.A.R.E., Inc., Help for Abused Partners, and S.A.R.A., Inc. provide Teen Dating and Sexual Violence Prevention Programs in schools in Northeast Colorado.

Our Teen Dating and Sexual Violence Prevention Education Programs:

• Provide a definition of dating violence or relationship abuse that includes physical, sexual, verbal and emotional or psychological abuse.

• Teach healthy relationship skills and alternatives to abuse.

• Identify power and control issues as they relate to teen dating violence.

• Challenge attitudes that blame the victims.

• Increase empathy for victims/survivors.

• Encourage bystander accountability.

• Challenge social norms that permit or support abuse.

• Are facilitated by a person with expertise who has specialized training in the dynamics of sexual and relationship violence.

Call (970) 867-4444 for more information.

Mark Wynn Workshop at MCC September 27

SHARE, Inc. presents a free one-day workshop given by national speaker Mark Wynn on September 27, 2011, in the Bloedorn Room, at Morgan Community College, 920 Barlow Road, Fort Morgan, Colorado.

“Domestic Violence Investigation and Intervention” is presented by Mark Wynn, a national trainer to law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, legislators, social service providers, health-care professionals and victim advocates.

The workshop targets law enforcement and criminal justice personnel and victim advocates and is open to the public. Seating is limited and the registration deadline is September 23. Sessions will run from 8 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. with lunch on your own.

AGENDA

I. Threat Assessment. This lesson outlines the most common element in domestic violence and how to build a view of seriousness using pre-incident indicators to violence. A profile of domestic murders using actual case examples and the common denominators in these fatal cases will be discussed.

II. Civil Liability in Domestic Violence Incidents. An overview of the dangerousness, complexity and liability risk to officers and departments when dealing with domestic violence. Review of existing case law of “failure to protect” suits. Legal authority of officers and agencies and methods to manage liability.

III. Stalking and Counter-stalking. Covers the growing crime of stalking in domestic violence incidents. Topics include stalking personalities and behavior, impact on victims, level of danger, establishing probable cause, investigative tactics, counter-measures and prevention, and safety planning.

IV. Beyond the Obvious – Avoiding Dual Arrest and Officer Manipulation. Will guide the investigator/officer through the difficult cases, provide a clear definition and understanding of probable cause, self-defense, interpretation of injuries and dominant / primary aggressor. The goal will be to reduce the inappropriate dual arrests that frequently occur at the scene of domestic violence cases.
