05-08-2014 - Online, Offline, and Over-the-Line: Youth and the Internet

Location

Wilder Foundation

With an estimated 16 million users under the age of 18, it is impossible to deny that the Internet has changed the social life of youth. The Internet has influenced what youth know, and the way they think, feel, and behave. Clearly, the Internet has had a significant, positive impact in the lives of youth, but there is a dark side that we cannot deny. Pornography, gambling, sexual harassment, sex offenders, and online bullying; these are just a few of the issues youth face when they access the Internet.

This presentation will review the latest research related to youth and their online behavior. Particular attention will be paid to the sexual aspects of the Internet that influence youth in the online world. The presentation will also discuss what youth need to know to maintain emotional health in an electronic world and how adults can be involved in this process.

Presenter: Elizabeth Griffen

Elizabeth Griffin is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over twenty - nine years experience assessing and treating adolescents and adults who struggle with sexual issues. Ms. Griffin lectures and consults nationally on the assessment and treatment of problematic online sexual behaviors, sexually compulsive behaviors, and sexual offending behaviors.

02-13-2014 - Using your Story to Change Minds

Location

Wilder Foundation, 451 Lexington Pkwy North, St Paul, MN, 55104

With the legislature starting at the end of February, now is a great time to build your confidence and skills for educating/talking with your legislators about the issues that matter to you.  We know that the Civil Commitment Task Force recommendations will be on their agenda but what can we do to ensure that sexual violence prevention is on their agenda too?

We’ll start our presentation with an overview of the legislative process and quickly move into talking about how to create effective messages. Then, we’ll work in small groups to practice delivering our messages.  You’ll leave this session with confidence and skills to use your personal stories to advance policies at the legislature...and at the community/organizational level as well.

05-10-2013 - From Scandal to Social Change

Location

Dakota County Northern Service Center, Room 110, 1 Mendota Road West, West St. Paul, MN 55118

Using recent public child sexual abuse allegations in youth sports and youth serving organizations as the backdrop, Yvonne Cournoyer, Sexual Violence Prevention Coordinator at the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA), will lead a discussion of what needs to change to create safe environments for children.  

Yvonne will provide a brief case study of recent “scandals” to illustrate the gaps in current practice that allow sexual abuse to occur at such alarming rates. Yvonne will discuss that effecting the changes that will prevent children from ever experiencing sexual harm in these settings will require social change at all levels of society—from individuals to institutions. You will leave with knowledge and tools you can use in your own life and to work with parents and youth serving organizations to proactively prevent child sexual abuse.

Location

Dakota County Northern Service Center, Room 110, 1 Mendota Road West, West St. Paul, MN 55118

Join us for an exciting presentation by Bob Filipczak: Marketing Safety Across the Generations. Bob Filipczak is Social Media Coordinator for MnDOT and the co-author of Generations at Work, published in 1999 and republished in 2012. He has been studying the different generations since about 1994 when he wrote a ground breaking article about Generation X for Training Magazine. Since initially studying  the Boomers, Gen Xers, and Gen Yers, he has been neck-deep in studying the next generation of young people¿the Millennials. His presentation is entertaining, utilizes many ads and marketing campaigns and is amazingly insightful in terms of addressing the question: Are we messaging to the people we are trying to reach?

 

Julia Johnsen from the U of M Center for Leadership Education in Maternal and Child Health will lead the discussion and brainstorming following Bob¿s Presentation.  We encourage you to physically attend this SVPN meeting if possible (rather than livestream) to participate in what is sure to be a lively discussion!

Location

Amherst H. Wilder Foundation 451 Lexington Parkway North Saint Paul, MN 55104

NOTE: The date for this event is tentative.

Presenter: Dr. David McCollum

As a former physician and co-founder of the Academy on Violence and Abuse, Dr. McCollum has been a primary voice in Minnesota calling for more attention to Adverse Childhood Experiences and their associated effects on health over the lifespan.

    Location

    Snelling Office Park, Mississippi Room, 1645 Energy Park Drive, St. Paul, MN

    What does preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) - including child sexual abuse - have to do with preventing diabetes, heart disease, obesity, early pregnancy, substance use, or improving education outcomes? Everything! We all have a pivotal role in promoting the conditions necessary to achieve the health and well-being we seek for our communities - no matter where you work in public health, policy, advocacy, education, social services. This SVPN meeting will provide you with an overview of the Adverse Childhood Experiences study, how its findings have been used to craft policies and advocacy messages, and the implications for sexual violence prevention work. We will describe the ways in which how we frame the story of child sexual abuse prevention - as advocates, policy makers, researchers, and practitioners - shapes our ability to achieve the change we are demanding. We will also explore how the ACE study has been used to create new frames that support our prevention efforts. We will also highlight how Minnesota is planning to collect and use ACE data - and how that data will be available to you and your organization.

    Location

    Snelling Office Park - Mississippi Room
    1645 Energy Park Drive
    Saint Paul, MN

    This SVPN presentation will provide participants an opportunity to learn more about Demand the Change, Change of Heart.

    This is a MNCASA prevention initiative designed to mobilize communities and engage broader audiences in actions they can take to make social change. Through previous roundtables and the MN Summit to Prevent Sexual Violence, MNCASA learned the importance of having an answer to the often asked question of What is the IT? What is it that I/we can do to prevent sexual violence?

    While there is not one simple action nor answer to such questions, people, organizations and communities are able to Demand the Change when they see and hear practices they find offensive or believe feed the demand to treat children, young people and women as sexual objects or commodities that they are entitled to abuse, exploit and violate whether for individual or commercial gain.

    Learn about how you can use this campaign and also use the power of stories to focus on solutions and successful action.

    Hear more Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) efforts related to this initiative and other tools available to help you advance your prevention efforts.

    Location

    Snelling Office Park - Mississippi Room

    Saint Paul, MN

    Sexual violence can affect individuals across the lifespan, including people in later life.

    Many older victims have survived multiple victimizations over the course of their lives.

    Recognition of sexual violence against people in later life is hindered by misconceptions that older adults are not sexual beings or sexually desirable and that rape is a crime of passion.

    Join us for our panel presentation/discussion and learn about the often hidden problem

    of sexual abuse in later life and ways we can all work to prevent it.

    05-14-2010 - Seeking Common Ground: Exploring the Role of Sexuality Education in Sexual Violence Prevention

    Location

    Snelling Office Park, 1645 Energy Park Drive, St. Paul, MN

    Preventing sexual violence requires multiple strategies. Creating sexually healthy environments for our children and youth means ensuring that they have the best and most reliable information about healthy sexuality. For several years in Minnesota, policy has been proposed to enhance the education that happens in public schools regarding sexuality, sexual health, and pregnancy prevention. This year, for the first time, the proposed policy language referred to sexual violence prevention as a goal of effective comprehensive sexual health education. Research evidence suggests that parents want their children to have good sexuality information and that a comprehensive approach is responsible and respectful of youth.

    This panel presentation highlights Dr. Marla Eisenberg, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Adolescent Health and Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Eisenberg will be joined by Lorie Alveshare, Policy Director at MOAPPP, Frederick Ndip, Planned Parenthood, and Anna Schmitz, Planned Parenthood Teen Council. MDH and MNCASA staff will also participate in the panel discussion.

    The goal of the presentation is to give participants the language to engage in productive conversation about the role of sexuality education in preventing sexual violence.
