Higher Education: Dispelling Myths to More Effectively Respond to Campus Rape

AEquitasIn collaboration with Greet Dot , etc., Inc. and AEquitas, this web conference discusses how research shows the vast majority of sex offenders are non-stranger rapists and serial offenders. Non-stranger rapists rely on premeditated tactics and nontraditional weapons and are adept at creating, identifying, and manipulating perceived vulnerabilities in their victims. These offenders also benefit from common misconceptions and false expectations of offenders (e.g., appearance, behavior, use of weapons) that can result in failure to identify non-stranger rapists who do not meet these expectations. To more effectively identify, investigate, and prosecute non-stranger rapists on campus, prosecutors must overcome common myths and misconceptions about sexual violence, especially if judges and juries believe them. This presentation will provide a comprehensive overview of sex offenders with an emphasis on non-stranger rapists (e.g., motivations and characteristics, myths and misconceptions, serial and crossover offending) and focus on strategies for overcoming the unique challenges these offenders present on campus.

Victim services for trans survivors

A resource provided by the Stalking Resource Center  in collaboration with FORGE is this webinar titled Understanding Stalking Dynamics and Implications for Transgender Individuals and CommunitiesBelow is a description of the webinar:

Recent national data indicates that 6.6 million people are stalked in a one year period in the United States; yet stalking is a crime that is often misunderstood, minimized or missed entirely. Guest presenter Rebecca Dreke of the Stalking Resource Center provides foundational information on stalking, including common stalking dynamics, the impact on victims, and how victim service providers can better assist transgender victims and survivors of stalking. Additionally, the webinar will include a case study in which a transgender professor was stalked by a student. We will explore how their respective identities compromised the effectiveness of officials’ and bystanders’ responses. Webinar participants will be offered practical tools on safety planning and threat assessment as well as other examples to support them in better serving transgender individuals who have experienced stalking.
