Modern technology has made it faster & easier for survivors and advocates to communicate, and that convenience can smooth the way for some great advocacy. Youth in particular may find it more comfortable or accessible to utilize technology-based advocacy. And, modern technology has made it faster & easier for governments & funders to demand invasive amounts of information about survivors, and for hackers & stalkers to steal wide-ranging types of information.  Therefore, this training will focus especially on working with youth survivors.  

This session will prepare anti-violence advocates to work with youth survivors with:

  1. a focus on self-determination,
  2. an understanding of privacy requirements, and
  3. an alertness to the risks of disclosure that a youth survivor will want to consider when choosing how to communicate

* Please note this training is offered in SeaTac on 3/20 and Spokane 3/22. You may select only 1 to attend.

Workshop Objectives: 

1. Understand fundamental principles of privacy, confidentiality and privilege
2. Learn the federal and state law that protects survivor control over information
3. Assess pros & cons of various information technology platforms
4. Practice communicating with youth survivors about options & facilitating survivor-led choices around information sharing
