LGBTQI: Working With Victims of Sex Trafficking @ Kristi House - Central Office
Feb 15 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Survivors Pathway presents a unique approach to understand the challenges and barriers experienced by the LGBTQI individuals especially within the contest of violence and access to justice. This training presented by Survivors’ Pathway Chief Francesco Duberli-Rivera focuses on addressing the complexities of gender identity and sexual orientation from a cultural and social perspective, giving the trainees the opportunity to gain a broader understanding and tools to provide sensitive services to these communities. The Survivors’ Pathway’s victim-centered model will provide participants a look at the experiences of the LGBTQI communities through the different types of victimization, including trafficking. The group will engage in an analysis about how violence affects these communities, and how we can respond in a competent manner. It is expected that this training increase trainees’ sensitivity and knowledge regarding the effects of trafficking and victimization in marginalized communities. The training encourages participants to be authentic and openly share beliefs and fears often withheld in discussions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity.

RSVP is requested to info@survivorspathway.org. Please include your name, agency affiliation and contact information.

Children with Problematic Sexual Behavior @ Kristi House
Mar 31 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Some children display intrusive, aggressive or coercive sexual behaviors. This is inappropriate and potentially harmful to these children and their peers. Recognizing and responding to sexual behavior problems is important since research suggests a quarter to half of child sexual abuse involves children acting out on other children.   This 2.5-hour awareness training was created based on the evidence-based intervention for children with problematic sexual behavior developed by Dr. Barbara Bonner, Ph.D., Director, and The Center on Child Abuse and Neglect at the University of Oklahoma Children’s Physicians Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics. The presentation includes PowerPoint, Audio, Video and Lecture.

RSVP to Dawn Thompson – 305-547-6834 – dthompson@kristihouse.org.

Objectives

  1. Participants will understand and be able to identify the difference between normal sexual development and problematic sexual behaviors.
  2. Participants will articulate signs and symptoms of problematic behavior.
  3. Participants will learn basic skills in creating a positive environment where children understand boundaries, and can promote impulse control, social skills and empathy development
