Survivor Services Providers strive to create safe, confidential, healing spaces for trauma survivors. But even in those spaces, emergency situations can arise – threats of violence, medical crises, and escalating conflicts to name a few. You can’t know when an emergency will happen, but you can prepare to respond in advance.

This webinar will support programs and their staff to identify the kinds of emergencies that can arise, develop a plan for responding effectively, and uphold confidentiality best practices.
This webinar is for local victim/survivor services programs and coalitions.

Everyone who registers will receive the recording link and follow-up resources. You can request a recording of the webinar if you know you won’t be able to attend live.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify the kinds of emergencies that commonly arise when working with survivors of violence.
2. Learn the confidentiality rules and best practices for managing survivor information when responding to those emergencies.
3. Understand the organizational steps that should be taken to build the emergency preparedness of the staff and volunteers working with survivors.
