Shattering Silence: Clinical Perspectives on Sexual Violence 1970 - 2020
a virtual event

Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020 
5 - 6:30 p.m.

This online lecture will trace the changing historical context for sexual violence over the past 50 years and explore the implications of this for current clinical practice, as well as for our understanding of both victims and perpetrators. It will provide evidence-based guidance on the presenting characteristics and behaviors of sexual predators and outline best practices for using trauma-informed approaches in the assessment and treatment of victims of abuse. And, it will probe the progress made or not made with regard to our legal and clinical responses to sexual violence and the impact of this on victims, offenders, and society at large.
