Conference 2012 Theme
The aim of the 3rd conference is to deepen our understanding of how rape survivor needs can inform our practice and knowledge and how an effective multiagency response to sexual violence, which holds a survivor focus at its heart, is created and sustained.
The conference aims to explore the learning and contribution all agencies, professionals, practitioners and advocates responding to rape gain through their involvement with survivors of rape. How that learning can be captured and shared and what responsibility that learning gives us in adapting our work to respond to survivors of rape and in creating collaboration and wider change towards primary prevention.
We are particularly interested in exploring issues surrounding:
- How to create and sustain effective multiagency working, more
- New approaches to identifying and meeting survivor needs, more
- Responding to survivors of rape's medical and forensic needs, more
- Effective and ethical recording and use of data on prevalence, perpetrators and survivors of rape, more
- The role of those responding to survivors of rape in primary prevention, more
- The role of alcohol in rape, more
- Supporting a survivor of rape engaging in the criminal justice process, more
