ONGOING VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITIES

Advocacy for Victims of Abuse
Online Tutorial on Abuse this is a self-paced tutorial on abuse for clergy, spiritual leaders and teachers. The purpose is to provide leaders with the needed information on issues of domestic violence and childhood sexual assault. Given the prevalence of abuse, all faith leaders need basic knowledge about these two types of violence.

AEquitas

Battered Women Charged with Crimes this previously- recorded webinar was developed to help prosecutors and criminal justice partners identify, evaluate, and develop improved responses to cases involving battered women who are arrested for using violence against their abusers.

Introducing Expert Testimony in Domestic Violence Cases public perceptions of how victims should respond to physical and emotional trauma often conflict with the way victims actually behave, and these misconceptions can severely affect the fact finders’ assessment of victim credibility and ultimate case outcome. Experienced professionals familiar with victim behavior understand that victims have individual responses to trauma that are often counterintuitive to public expectations, but may be unable or unsure of how to explain this to the jury. Introducing expert testimony to explain victim behavior is a way to dispel myths and assist the jury in making an informed decision based on the evidence. This recording described common victim behaviors and dynamics in intimate partner violence cases, as well as their impact on fact finders' assessments of victim credibility. The presenter discussed the law related to the introduction of expert testimony by the prosecution to explain victim behavior and how to identify experts qualified to testify on this issue. The recording also highlighted the importance of deciding whether to introduce expert testimony in a case. In addition, it identified ways to work with experts to prepare a case for trial even if the testimony will not be introduced.

Introducing Expert Testimony in Sexual Violence Cases the public has deeply-rooted perceptions about sexual violence and about how victims of sexual assault should behave. The realities of sexual violence are quite different. Experienced professionals familiar with the dynamics of sexual violence understand that victims have individual responses to trauma that are often counterintuitive to public expectations. Without the benefit of a proper explanation, however, jurors may wrongly interpret a victim’s actions during and after an assault as reasons not to believe the victim’s testimony. Expert testimony to explain victim behavior is often the best way to dispel myths and assist the jury to make an informed decision based on the evidence, viewed in its proper context.

It discussed the law related to the prosecution’s introduction of expert testimony on victim behavior, how to identify experts qualified to testify on this subject, and what the parameters of such testimony should be.
