The National Crime Victim Law Institute is excited to announce that the 2022 Oregon Advanced Victim Assistance Academy, “Protecting Child-Victims’ Rights in Criminal Justice,”¬†will be held in-person on December 5, 2022, in Portland, Oregon!
Oregon law affords child-victims participatory rights in the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Ensuring that these rights are meaningful starts with understanding that children process information and communicate differently than adults. It is critical for attorneys and advocates who interact with child-victims to understand these differences to help remove barriers to children’s access to justice and services. Join the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI) at the Advanced Victim Assistance Academy where we will bring together multi-disciplinary presenters to train on effective rights advocacy for child-victims. During this half-day training we will cover (1) the fundamentals of child development; (2) effective communication based on children’s developmental stage; and (3) protecting child-victim agency.
