This webinar was developed to train victim advocates at rape crisis centers who will provide emotional support services to incarcerated survivors of sexual abuse and sexual harassment in county jails. The webinar provides useful information about how jails differ from prisons and delves into how women and people with mental illness make up an increasing percentage of the incarcerated population in U.S. county-run jails.
This webinar will:
· increase advocates’ understanding of the unique jail setting
· offer tools for building relationships with jail staff for the provision of emotional support services mandated by the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA)
· discuss ways to support survivors who are preparing to re-enter, or have recently re-entered the community
