Beyond Basic Services

0 comments

This webinar was developed for agencies who are ready to expand their services for incarcerated survivors beyond the basic services of written correspondence, hotline, and accompaniment to forensic exams mandated by PREA.

The webinar includes information on:

  • determining your agency’s capacity to offer services beyond letter-writing, hotline calls, and forensic accompaniment to incarcerated survivors
  • advocating on behalf of a survivor who is behind bars
  • providing one-on-one in-person support to survivors in detention
  • facilitating support groups for survivors in detention
