The Sexual Abuse To Prison Pipeline: The Urgency of an Intersectional Approach to Human Trafficking and Child Sexual Abuse, Tuesday, November 10, 1:00pm-2:30pm
It is incredibly important that state agencies and service provider agencies are able to identify and competently respond to the common behavioral effects of youth experiencing sexual violence and complex trauma, particularly for youth of color who are exponentially more likely than their White counterparts to experience criminalization for the expected behavioral effects of complex trauma and sexual violence. This training is designed to help employees at the Indiana Department of Child Services recognize the impact of race and racism on youth who have experienced sexual violence and who identify as Black, African American, or Multi-Racial. This training will help attendees utilize new tools and skills to discuss race and racism in the context of sexual violence, and find healthy, competent, supportive services for youth of color.
