Whether its a single incident or an ongoing pattern of abuse, sexual assault can undermine a victim’s physical and emotional safety – effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security. This 90-minute webinar will address the importance of safety planning for victims of non-intimate partner sexual assault, explore how safety planning for these survivors may be different than safety planning with domestic violence victims, and provide tips for using the VRLC’s OVW-approved safety planning guides, which include population-specific guides to safety planning with LGBTQ survivors, on college campuses, and with survivors experiencing homelessness. The webinar will include a discussion of strategies for protecting victim privacy, discussing emotional safety and providing survivor-centered safety planning.
