Effective Communication for Helping Victims of Crime and Violence

Preferred registration deadline: April 20th

3 CEUs

Jessica Meyers, MPA
Director of Advocacy Services
Crime Victim Advocacy Center

Crime and violence are experiences that trigger new behaviors and unfamiliar needs. Victims have difficulty making sense of what has happened, are unaware of the complications that may soon occur because of their experience, and lack of resources to help mitigate negative factors associated with crime. How can we help ease the negative effects of crime? What is helpful to say to a victim? What help do they need from us?

This session will identify best practices for helping victims through initial and residual trauma associated with crime. We will discuss effective communication, available resources, empathetic interactions with victims and more.

Class size is limited to 30.

$50 General Admission
