Ni Santas, Ni Putas: The impact of external and internalized misogyny on Latina survivors

According to the Sexual Assault Among Latinas (SALAS) study published in 2010, only 3.3 % of Latinas utilized some type of victim assistance service. This webinar will review rape culture manifestations within some Latino communities and how cultural issues, gender double standards, rape myths, and self-blame can all impede survivor help-seeking. It will also address the role that Latina and Latino stereotypes play in victim blaming and how the current climate of Latinx demonization and othering is impacting both Latina survivor identification with the #MeToo / #YoTambien movement, and the victim advocacy efforts of bilingual victim advocates.

Presented by Laura Zarate, Founding Executive Director of Arte Sana, Chicana Victim Advocate and Bilingual Training Specialist

Campus Sexual and Dating Violence: The Role of Campus Health Centers

Intimate partner and sexual violence (IPV/SV) are highly prevalent on college campuses, impacting student health and educational attainment. Campus health centers are a vital component of campus-wide efforts to prevent and respond to IPV/SV. Though survivors are often discouraged from reporting or discussing their experiences through traditional pathways, health care providers on campuses are in a unique position to offer support, as well as to provide universal education about healthy relationships and how violence can affect health and academic performance. This session will provide tools and resources for campus health center staff and administrators to address (IPV/SV) in their clinical practice, as well as engage in a range of campus-wide efforts. Presenters will outline best practices for implementing a comprehensive IPV/SV protocol that includes staff training, routine assessment in clinical encounters, student outreach, and partnership with other campus departments and community-based victim services providers.
