Privacy for sexual assault survivors is key for their healing and empowerment. The very development of laws that protect the relationship between sexual assault counselors and survivors suggests that California takes a strong position in the protection of sexual assault survivors stories. However, understanding these laws and how they intersect with other California laws regulating privacy and disclosure can be confusing.
Nancy O’Malley is the District Attorney of Alameda County and a leader in survivor advocacy in the State of California and nationally. Ms. O’Malley is a recognized expert in issues involving Violence Against Women and interpersonal violence, including sexual assault, domestic violence, elder abuse, child abuse, stalking/threat management. As a member of the team that drafted the original language of the sexual assault counselor privilege, she has a critical understanding of the complex issues related to Sexual Assault Counselor Privilege and other statutes that impact that privilege, in California.
During this 1 1/2 hour webinar, Ms. O’Malley will explain the laws regulating privilege and confidentiality for sexual assault counselors and the survivors they work with. In addition, she will address some of the most common areas where there may be confusion in how these laws intersect, including where disclosure is required. Please join us on May 31st, 2013 from 10-11:30 AM PST for a webinar explaining confidentiality requirements in California related to sexual assault counselors and survivors, and circumstances that may compromise or trump privilege protections.
