Part One of a two part series

The systems and structures in place to support kids and youth after they experience violence or abuse can feel complicated and complex. This is especially true when trying to manage varying confidentiality and reporting requirements. To help support better wrap-around services for young people, the Oregon Attorney General’s Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF), in partnership with experts across Oregon, is hosting two webinars this fall to coincide with the release of new resources to support better partnerships across mandatory reporting and confidential youth advocacy services.

WHO ARE THESE FOR: Anyone who provides services to youth and particularly those in youth focused organizations/institutions (ex. schools, family services programs, juvenile justice programs, public health, etc.), and those providing crisis response services to youth (ex. domestic and sexual violence advocacy programs, child advocacy programs, etc.).


Sign up for one or both of these learning opportunities today! They will be recorded and available afterwards as well, so please sign up even if you can’t make it if you would like to be notified as soon as the recordings are available!

With shared goals in mind, including health, safety, and healing, this webinar focuses on the unique overlaps and opportunities to partner within
agencies and systems designed to support children and youth after violence and abuse has occurred. This will include historical context on how the past has
shaped our present methods, acknowledging where challenges in partnership have come up as a result of different roles, and offering continual practices and strategies to improve connections between community based programs focused on making our communities safer for children and families (ex. domestic and sexual violence agencies [DVSA programs], child advocacy centers [CACs], and court appointed special advocate [CASA] programs, etc.).
