The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) is supporting three national organizations – the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC), and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP) – to partner on a novel initiative to provide training and technical assistance to enhance probation responses to cases involving sexual assault.  This project aims to promote well-informed, victim-centered probation responses within the context of a comprehensive approach to sex offender management through on-site training, technical assistance, written resources, and webinars.
 
Please join us for the first in a series of webinars to be delivered under this national initiative. During this webinar, presenters will:
  • Provide an overview of this project and the resources it can offer to the field;
  • Highlight the importance of victim-centeredness as an underlying tenet of sex offender management efforts, including probation practices;
  • Summarize findings from a national needs assessment of representatives from the victim advocacy and probation/parole supervision communities regarding shared goals, current practice trends and collaborations, and decision points that have implications for enhancing victim-centered probation responses; and
  • Offer examples of ways in which victim-centered sex offender supervision practices are being implemented. 
Anticipated presenters for this session will be:
  • Karen Baker, Executive Director, National Sexual Violence Resource Center
  • Dr. Kurt Bumby, Project Director, Center for Sex Offender Management
