Transforming Crisis Response into Long-Term Solutions

Transforming Crisis Response into Long-Term Solutions

Barrier Free Living is a domestic violence agency in New York City that serves people with disabilities and those who are D/deaf. According to the World Health Organization, people with disabilities are 1.5 times more likely to be a victim of violence than those without a disability, while those with mental health conditions are at nearly four times the risk of experiencing violence. During the COVID- 19 pandemic we learned a lot about how we can offer services in an accessible and flexible manner. We now better understand the true meaning “client centered” services by letting people choose how they would like to receive services such as by phone, video, or in-person. This resulted in people attending services more regularly and on-time.

A Racial Justice Adaptation of SAMHSA’s Trauma-Informed Care Principles

A Racial Justice Adaptation of SAMHSA’s Trauma-Informed Care Principles

Racial justice is a public health and safety issue. The history of systemic racism and structural disempowerment in the United States sets the stage for a multitude of problems in vulnerable populations. In communities of color, health disparities related to bias and persistent institutional mistreatment and trauma are pervasive. For victims of color, who have experienced domestic or sexual violence, these harmful structures can be increasingly disenfranchising and act as barriers to engagement in services, participation in the criminal justice system, and can also lead to negative case outcomes.

Gender-Based Violence and Faith: Toward a Faith Sensitive Approach

Gender-Based Violence and Faith: Toward a Faith Sensitive Approach

Too often, when victim advocates, social workers, and therapists begin their work with victims of gender- and power-based violence, we assess the survivor and the case using a standard needs assessment format. When a victim/survivor tries to tell us about abuse and violence, they frequently leave out some of the most traumatic incidents because they are convinced, we won't understand them - and they are right. The use of spirituality to maintain control over a victim/survivor is not unique to any one faith, but it is discounted by many (or most) system professionals. Victim advocates, social workers, human service workers, law enforcement and prosecutors discount spiritual abuse because we don't understand it and we don't know how to address it.

Survivors’ Voices: Reimagining Justice for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Survivors’ Voices: Reimagining Justice for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

Crimes against people with disabilities are often challenging for professionals who respond to crime victims. Although people with disabilities are 7 times more likely to experience sexual assault than people without disabilities, they often do not have access to victim services. In this session, attendees will explore what justice means to people with disabilities by listening to the voices of survivors. Together, the presenters and attendees will reimagine what trauma-informed best practices should look like for victims with disabilities.

Reimagining Justice for Survivors through Policy Change and Healing Environments

Reimagining Justice for Survivors through Policy Change and Healing Environments

At any level of the justice system, serving survivors with a verdict against their perpetrator or a settlement for themselves is not enough to say we have reached justice. Our society is socialized to believe impunity and punishment of perpetrators will become justice for survivors, and while we believe this to be true for some – what can be truly transformative is a reimagined focus on healing. Survivors deserve systems and spaces that create healing opportunities and prevent harm, though throughout the United States there is a growing crisis of sexual assaults occurring within psychiatric and rehabilitation facilities.
