At the 2011 Leadership Conference in Sacramento, Calif., CALCASA will host a variety of workshops dedicated to Intervention/Advocacy for advocates working with survivors of sexual violence. Among those workshops is The Basics of Confidentiality.
Protection of confidential communications is key to the empowerment of survivors.  Since the beginning of the Rape Crisis Movement the law and policy on protecting these communications has evolved.  This workshop will review the basics of confidentiality,  and the outline the importance of maintaining privilege for advocates.  In addition, there will be opportunities to discuss the development of confidentiality policies, and address practical scenarios for application of confidentiality laws.
