Dr. Kimberly A. Lonsway with End Violence Against Women (EVAW) International

On Tuesday, October 26, 2010, the Campus Program at the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA) will host a webinar on “Unfounded Cases & False Reports: A Complex Problem” facilitated by Dr. Kim Lonsway.  Unfounded cases and false reporting present complex questions for communities responding to sexual assault.  Dr. Lonsway will not only examine questions of response but will also consider the consequences of unfounded cases and false reports and review best practice recommendations.

Dr. Kim Lonsway is the Director of Research at End Violence Against Women International where she develops grant proposals, conducts original research, develops training content and resource materials, and provides training for multidisciplinary audiences of researchers and practitioners in law enforcement, victim advocacy, health care, prosecution, and related disciplines. Dr. Lonsway earned her Ph.D. in the Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She then served for two years as a post-doctoral research fellow at the interdisciplinary American Bar Foundation in Chicago, Illinois. Her research focuses on sexual violence and the criminal justice and community response system, and she has volunteered for over ten years as a victim advocate for rape crisis centers in two different communities.

To register, please check the Project Directors listserv. If you have any trouble registering, contact the Campus Program.

The Campus Program webinars are open to current recipients of the United States Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women Grant to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic/Dating Violence and Stalking Campus Grant. Webinar materials will be made available to the public following the webinar.

    Hi Livia,

    I was wondering when the webinar materials from “Unfounded Cases & False Reports: A Complex Problem” facilitated by Dr. Kim Lonsway would be made available to the campus grantees? Thanks for any information you could share!

    Hi Livia,

    The link isn’t working. It takes me to a parent directory page?

    Thanks,
    Heather

      Hi Heather,

      Chad, our wonderful IT resource, fixed the problem. Try the link again and it should work so long as you log in (I recommend logging in as Rebecca). Email me at [email protected] if you run into any trouble.

      Thanks!
