Sexual Violence Prevention Network (SVPN) Meeting: “Management, Treatment and Prevention...a Conversation about People who have Committed Sex Offenses,” St. Paul, MN, November 8, 2013

“Management, Treatment and Prevention...a Conversation
about People who have Committed Sex Offenses”

We are all interested in ending sexual violence. We know that ending the harm is high on the agendas of those working with victim/survivors, those working in sex offender treatment; and those running for public office! It has rarely been so clear about how much we all want to end sexual violence. Yet our public dialog seems to indicate that, in spite of our efforts, we have come only slightly closer to that goal than we were 35 years ago when rape crisis centers opened in Minnesota; 22 years ago when civil commitment began; when the sex offender sentencing guidelines grid was developed, or when sex offender probation caseloads were decreased, or when funding for intensive supervision began. Public outcry has driven us to put many resources into the management of those who have caused harm yet it appears we may be missing the mark – if that mark is about ending sexual violence. 

The SVPN meeting will feature a dialog with:
Eric Janus, Dean of William Mitchell College of Law
Jeanne Ronayne, Director of Victim Services of Dodge Fillmore and Olmsted Counties
and Haley Fox, Clinical Director of the MN Sex Offender Program

We will explore how effective, reasoned and evidence based approaches to the management and treatment of those who have committed sex offenses blends with emerging conversations about preventing the perpetration of sexual violence. We want to support thoughtful, respectful and productive public discourse that ultimately may help us prevent child sexual abuse and sexual violence.

Webinar - Prevalence of Adolescent Sexual Violence Perpetration: New Study and Implications for Prevention, November 13, 2013

Webinar - Prevalence of Adolescent Sexual Violence Perpetration: New Study and Implications for Prevention, November 13, 2013

As we seek strategies to prevent rape, we need to examine not only how to prevent sexual violence victimization, but we need strategies to prevent sexual violence perpetration. And to develop strategies to prevent sexual violence perpetration, we need to know about the perpetrators themselves. Yet, little information is known about youth perpetrators.

A recent study in JAMA Pediatrics provides new insight. The study found that nearly 1 in 10 youths reported some type of sexual violence perpetration in their lifetimes. Join one of the study's authors to discuss the study and to explore implications for prevention. November 13, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. For more information link to: http://www.preventconnect.org/2013/10/adolescent_prevalence/

Webinar - How Can We Measure Sexual Health? A Perspective from the Sexual Health Rankings Project” November 21, 2013

Webinar - How Can We Measure Sexual Health? A Perspective from the Sexual Health Rankings Project” November 21, 2013

We have intricate and sophisticated ways to measure the presence of, or the absence of, sexually transmitted diseases, not to mention unintended pregnancy, contraception use, and intimate partner violence. But how do we measure sexual health in ways that are not just the absence of disease? The World Health Organization has a definition of sexual health that emphasizes wellness, accounts for the determinants of health, and encompasses human rights, sexual expression and identity, and sexual pleasure.

But how can that be measured? Join this webinar to hear a perspective from the Sexual Health Rankings project, delivered by Martin Downs, MPH, lead author and researcher of Sexual Health Rankings, 2012.

New Report: Addressing the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, and Gender-Related Health Disparities

New Report: Addressing the Intersection of HIV/AIDS, Violence against Women and Girls, and Gender-Related Health Disparities

More than 1 in 3 women in the United States has experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner in her lifetime; of these women, 69% report experiencing intimate partner violence at age 25 or younger, and 22% experience IPV for the first time as girls between the ages of 11 and 17 years. Furthermore, approximately 280,000 women in the United States were living with HIV in 2009, with an estimated 15% unaware of their status.

Women account for 20% of new HIV infections in the United States, with over three-quarters of these new infections occurring among black and Latina women. By themselves, these statistics represent a compelling call to action, but the particular prevalence of intimate partner violence among women living with HIV further reinforces the need to address the intersection of HIV/AIDS and violence against women and girls: 56% of women living with HIV, compared to the national prevalence of 36%, have experienced violence by an intimate partner.

Article: Childhood Trauma linked to Chronic Disease in Adulthood: Implications on the Medical and Economic Burden of Human Trafficking

Article: Childhood Trauma linked to Chronic Disease in Adulthood: Implications on the Medical and Economic Burden of Human Trafficking

Emotional, mental, and physical trauma during childhood are correlated with higher risk for many diseases that occur during adulthood, including coronary heart disease, depression, autoimmune disease, and drug addiction. The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, a long-term study spanning over a decade representing middle-class urban America, revealed invaluable data linking child abuse to the risk of chronic diseases.

Children and adolescents who are victims of sex or labor trafficking experience the same types of trauma, but to a greater extent and are thus at elevated risk for chronic diseases later in life.

They are a group to which the ACE Study directly applies and represent a population that will continue to add to the economic burden of chronic diseases on society, if the proper public health attention is not given to this wide spread problem.

Wilder Foundation Blog: Statewide Homeless Study Results

Wilder Foundation Blog: Statewide Homeless Study Results

The path to adulthood is steep and rocky for some youth. Youth transitioning into adulthood are at increased risk for homelessness. Our study found ages 16 and 18 were the most common ages to first experience homelessness. Most homeless youth come with childhood histories of trauma and long-term health issues.
About half were physically abused, 1 out of 3 neglected, and 1 out of 4 sexually abused as a child. More than half (58%) have had at least one placement in a foster home, group home, or facility for persons with emotional, behavioral, or mental health problems.
