Annual Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation & Adjudication Conference
May 10 2016
Conference Details and Objectives
The purpose of the Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Annual Conference is to provide college and university administrators with information and resources on evolving practices necessary to conduct these investigations.
The following detailed conference information is available:
Upon completing this conference you will be able to:
- Explain the intricacies and crossovers of Title IX, the Clery Act, criminal investigations, and institutional obligations;
- Identify the effects of trauma and how trauma impacts victims and others involved in investigations;
- Develop fair and balanced investigation and adjudication processes;
- Identify and apply industry evolving practices to conduct a trauma-informed investigation from disclosure and first response to adjudication; and
- Articulate federal expectations related to campus sexual assault investigations and adjudications, and identify support resources available through the federal government and non-governmental organizations.
Upon direction by the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, we developed this exceptional opportunity specifically for college and university administrators to receive critical information and resources. During the past year, we delivered the curriculum in four pilot locations to evaluate and refine this groundbreaking program. Pilot program attendees found the curriculum to be "immediately useful," "practical," and most importantly, taught with "sensitivity."
Program registration fees are $1,695 per participant, with a $150 discount available for members of relevant professional associations. Additional discounts of 10% are available for campuses sending groups of five or more. Space is limited, and due to high demand, we expect our sessions to fill up quickly.
