Decision case training for trainers in the field of sexual violence

January 8 - January 10

Join the Institute on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (IDVSA) for its CORSA Project’s Decision Case Train the Trainer: A New Technique for Trainers in the Field of Sexual Violence.

This three-day, FREE Train-the-Trainer Conference held at UT Austin will introduce and build instructional skills in the decision case study method. This method promotes dialogue and deep learning using case studies developed from dilemmas faced by Texas professionals in law enforcement, prosecution, and advocacy.

IDVSA will train a multi-disciplinary cohort of trainers from around the state from the fields of law enforcement, prosecution and advocacy with expertise in sexual assault cases to become trainers on this new methodology. IDVSA is currently recruiting individuals who can train system responders in their area of the state as part of their current position or regular work. Please contact Maggy McGiffert for more information at marymcgiffert@austin.utexas.edu

Each trainer will receive access to the six decision cases that IDVSA has compiled as well as the complementary training resources and curricula / facilitation guides. The training will involve learning about this innovative model and practicing facilitation skills with a national leader on this methodology, Dr. Terry Wolfer, from the University of South Carolina.

This project is supported by the Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division (Contract No. UTA14-001266). The opinions, findings, conclusions, and recommendations expressed this publication/program/exhibition are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Texas Office of the Governor.
