What are the average person’s attitudes about intimate partner violence? Do people know and understand that relationship violence can happen to anyone? How many people know a friend or loved one that has been affected by intimate partner violence? And how does this impact how we talk about intimate partner violence and work to change people’s attitudes about it?
This free 1-hour webinar presents results from a survey of laypersons, with a fairly large sample size (N = 900). The survey sample was obtained in California, so the findings may vary somewhat from what people think in Missouri– but we think the findings are still likely to be pretty valuable and interesting.

How do survivors of sexual assault act during an assault and after — what is “normal?” Why do people respond the ways they do– and how can we help them? Here is a great, free webinar from the National Institutes of Justice. Highly recommended. The webinar is about 90 minutes long and it’s recorded– you can go in and watch it anytime. Learn about the neurobiology of sexual assault — what happens in the body and the mind, and how it affects people’s behavior and presentation in clinical and legal settings– from one of the top experts on this topic, Dr. Rebecca Campbell. This webinar will make you a much better advocate for survivors, and if you’re a survivor yourself, may help you understand the physiological roots of your own responses to a violent assault– and accept them as healthy and normal.

From the email we received describing the webinar:
In the latest Research for the Real World presentation, Dr. Rebecca Campbell discusses the neurobiology of sexual assault and the effect trauma has on victim behavior. Is she exhibiting normal post-trauma behavior? Or is she lying?
Dr. Campbell has given this presentation before numerous law enforcement officers. She has several tips that help officers make arrests and strengthen the case.
Rebecca Campbell is Professor of Psychology and Program Evaluation at Michigan State University. For the past 20 years, she has conducted victimology research and evaluation, with an emphasis on violence against women and children. Her work examines how rape crisis centers and the legal, medical, and mental health systems respond to the needs of adult, adolescent, and pediatric victims of sexual assault. Her current work, funded by the National Institute of Justice, focuses on Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) programs and the criminal justice system.
If you’d like to read more about Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners and how they support survivors of sexual assault, Dr. Campbell has an excellent and freely-available article here: http://www.vawnet.org/Assoc_Files_VAWnet/AR_Sane.pdf
