Purpose and Goals of the Conference:
In the wake of the #metoo movement and many highly publicized cases of sexual violence, students are increasingly disclosing experiences of sexual harassment and assault, both in and outside of school. School social workers and counselors are often expected to support affected students and coordinate investigations while assisting school administration in managing the resulting school culture throughout the process. Through interactive sessions with attorneys, professional educator/advocates, and Rape Crisis Center’s GameChangers youth advisory board, this conference will provide participants with:
1. A shared understanding of sexual violence;
2. Knowledge and skills to balance the needs and rights of students with the legal responsibilities of schools
3. Best practices in supporting students; and
4. A plan of action to take back to their school.
