Understanding sexual assault survivor behavioral response

1 comment

Roger CanaffRoger Canaff, with the U.S. Department of the Army, led this month’s Campus Program webinar discussion on “A coordinated community team response to sexual assault: Understanding survivor behavioral response.”  Drawing from his legal background in the field of sexual assault, Roger provided a framework surrounding counter-intuitive behavior in order to further enhance community partners’ understanding of survivor behavior and victimology.  By doing so, partners become more sensitive towards the survivor and also better equipped to engage in an investigation process that will ultimately lead to successful prosecution.

Below are the materials from March’s webinar including the presentation and text chat transcription.  The audio recording will be made available within the next week.
