This webinar presented by East Central Oklahoma University STAABLE Program, explains how to apply the science of memory and psychological trauma to enhance trauma interview approaches and techniques. Traditional training in this area focused on the explaining the impact of trauma on the “higher functioning” portions of the brain. However, research in the field demonstrates that these portions of the brain are not generally involved in experiencing and reacting to trauma. Adapting the principles used in critical incident stress debriefing and also the empathy-based techniques developed for forensic child interviews, the FETI process was developed to instead engage the ‘lower functioning’ portions of the brain. This technique reduces inaccuracy of the information provided and increases the likelihood of understanding the totality of the experience.

This webinar presented by Green Dot entitled, “In Scoring a Hat Trick: Three Ways to Maximize your Partnerships with Athletics,” presenters Darcie Folsom and CC Curtis of Connecticut College provided concrete suggestions for ways campus grantees can engage student athletes in their violence prevention efforts. Folsom and Curtis focused on three primary strategies: clearing the puck (investigating biases), planning for the power play (branding and relationship building), and the breakaway (making violence prevention the cool thing to do). Some of the concrete solutions offered during the webinar included attending athletic events, planning around athletes’ schedules, using a health promotion lens to engage athletes, identifying and building relationships with key athletic stakeholders, taking materials where athletes spend their time, giving recognition to athletes and coaches, highlighting your athletic partnerships when talking with prospective students, never mandating athletes to participate in prevention activities, and giving athletes tangible skills to keep their teammates from getting hurt or getting in trouble. Folsom and Curtis highlighted many of their successes at Connecticut College and answered questions about challenges, funding, and program assessment.

This webinar presented by CALCASA in collaboration with SAFER Campus and OVW Campus Grantees to discuss the importance of students working together with their universities on sexual assault, dating violence and stalking policy. Recently in the media we have seen numerous news stories of college students vocalizing discontent with their universities about policy and response to sexual assault on campus. By being proactive with student involvement in policy, universities can create a more collaborative relationship with students to ensure their needs are being met on campus.
Presenting on the webinar today was Zoe Ginsburg and Megan McKendry from SAFER Campus. The webinar was entitled, “How to effectively include students in development and revision of Sexual Assault policy.” They covered topics such as why students are key participants in policy reform and key findings in what students look for in a campus sexual assault policy.
