This webinar will address the importance of confidentiality between victim advocates and survivors, and the policy and social science rationales for victim advocates establishing and maintaining protocols around these communications. Victim advocates will learn about confidentiality, privileged communications, written informed consent protocols, the laws addressing these communications, and how to respond to tribal court-related requests for confidential or privileged communications.
Coping with the disappearance of a loved one or community member is very difficult. The fact that American Indian and Alaska Native women experience higher rates of domestic violence and sexual assault than any other population of women in the United States has broad ramifications. One consequence of this reality is that domestic and sexual violence occurs on a spectrum of abusive behavior and can include abduction and murder. If a woman you know is missing, taking immediate action is very important. The quicker you respond, the faster she may be located and provided the help needed.
This brochure gives women a guide for enhancing their personal safety and that of family members, while outlining tactics of power and control over women. The Safety Guide is also useful in community education efforts.
