Help is on the Line: Providing Hotline Services for Incarcerated Survivors
Aug 15, 2018 2:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_kjYyQX_3TE2QHWh0dNYJRA

Join us for Help is on the Line, an exciting webinar on providing crisis hotline services to incarcerated survivors. This webinar will address the challenges facing prisoner rape survivors who seek support, especially those who are held in rural detention facilities. Not only are crisis services far and few between, but many local programs have limited experience in — and limited funding for — giving services behind bars. We will focus on how rape crisis centers can adapt their existing hotline for a correctional setting. It will cover strategies for working with inmates, including how to ensure that calls are kept confidential. The webinar will feature JDI staff, as well as a rape crisis advocate from a rural program who has provided support to incarcerated survivors.
