Structuring Your Prevention Program for Success - WCSAP Webinar

This webinar will explore strategically structuring prevention sessions, as well as ensuring sessions and programs are connected to the broader prevention vision and goals. The trainer will give attendees ideas on how to design prevention sessions that utilize effective and engaging practices, such as setting specific and achievable learning objectives and incorporating diverse teaching techniques that are respective of multiple learning styles. Oftentimes preventionists are asked to cover a variety of topics in their presentations, which can result in a disjointed and confused message, therefore attendees will also learn how to sequence lessons so that they reinforce and build upon each other. Finally, the trainer will share strategies to achieve the identified goals of the agency prevention program, such as coordinating messages and threads of prevention across various programs to build towards greater impact in the community over time.

WEBINAR: #GUILTY: Identifying, Preserving, and Presenting Digital Evidence

The way we interact with technology continues to increase and evolve as we rely on computers, smart phones, and other digital devices to complete many of our daily activities. Unfortunately, as technology becomes more integral to our lives, offenders increasingly misuse technology to facilitate crimes against women, and as a means to assert power and control in the course of an intimate partner relationship. Where technology is being used to perpetrate crimes, investigators and prosecutors can identify, preserve, and present digital evidence in order strengthen cases, support victims, and hold offenders accountable for the full range of their criminal and abusive activity.

This presentation will demonstrate how cyber investigations can be used to reveal evidence of criminal activity, as well as evidence of the power and control dynamics of an abusive intimate partner relationship. The presenter will discuss theories of admission, rules of evidence, and case law will be discussed using “real life” examples to demonstrate how to properly authenticate and introduce digital evidence in civil and criminal proceedings.
