SEEK THEN SPEAK Resources

SEEK THEN SPEAK Resources

This page provides materials to begin offering SEEK THEN SPEAK in your community. From logos and graphics to promotional and training materials, your team can tailor any of these resources with local information. Or you can use them to spark ideas to create your own materials, so sexual assault survivors and support people can gather information, make decisions, and take action.

Logos

Please do not alter the SEEK THEN SPEAK logos to ensure consistent branding.

Website Graphics

You can place one or more of these graphics on your website, and link to SEEK THEN SPEAK by replacing the text in red with your agency name (no spaces). This allows you to track the number of people accessing this link from your website:

Training Materials (for Professionals)

Before offering SEEK THEN SPEAK, agencies must consider how it will be used in practice, and evaluate what policies and procedures must be adapted to effectively respond when survivors submit a report. EVAWI offers a PowerPoint presentation exploring these issues to train key personnel. You are free to use all or part of this training presentation (by selecting or hiding slides), but please do not revise the content of any of EVAWI’s slides or remove EVAWI’s formatting and branding. You can also add slides with local information, but please use your own agency’s formatting and branding to distinguish it from EVAWI’s original material.

You can also distribute the training bulletin excerpt on informational reports vs. crime reports (below). However, if you simply want to quote or excerpt the material, make sure to properly cite it to EVAWI.

Finally, the Protocol Development Guide can help guide the creation of a community-wide protocol for alternative reporting options such as SEEK THEN SPEAK. The Guide explains key concepts and outlines the responsibilities of law enforcement, victim advocacy, health care, and prosecution. The goal is to make sure this option is a reality for survivors.

Feedback

It is important to collect information from users, to evaluate how SEEK THEN SPEAK is working and guide future improvements. EVAWI gathers user feedback in both SEEK and SPEAK, with a few basic questions to assess performance:

Communities that offer SEEK THEN SPEAK are encouraged to develop their own mechanism for user feedback, not just on the tool itself but also on the multidisciplinary response to survivors who submit a report (from law enforcement, advocacy, health care, and prosecution). For help developing such an assessment, email SeekThenSpeak@evawintl.org.

Dialogue Text

Many people are interested in the dialogue provided to survivors and support people in SEEK THEN SPEAK. This text is provided below (both the informational content in SEEK and the investigative interview questions in SPEAK).

When you review the dialogue text, you may identify areas where you want to add local information or resources. For example, SEEK THEN SPEAK includes general statements about legal definitions, mandated reporting, crime victim rights, and other topics. When you post the tool on your agency’s web page, you can add information and resources that are tailored for your community, to help clarify these issues. For assistance, email SeekThenSpeak@evawintl.org.

Explore Your Options (Public-Facing)

EVAWI adapted the informational content in SEEK for the public-facing Explore Your Options section on the Start by Believing website. The content is the same in both places, but the user experience is different. In SEEK THEN SPEAK, users interactively click through screens, viewing only a small amount of information at a time. At any point, survivors can begin completing a report by answering the investigative interview questions in SPEAK.

Explore Your Options is a website, so users view all the content available and select topics of interest using headers. This makes it especially helpful for support people and others (employers, campuses, etc.) looking for information about sexual assault and how to respond in a helpful way to survivors. There is also a direct link to SEEK THEN SPEAK, in case a survivor finds the site and wants to begin completing a report.
