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.

Mimi V. Chapman: A visual intervention to counter bias in healthcare

February 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The 2017-2018 Dean’s Lecture Series Contemporary Issues in Research and Practice presents

Mimi V. Chapman, MSW, PhD
Yo veo salud: A visual intervention to counter bias among health care professionals

RSVP to sw-rsvp@austin.utexas.edu

“Implicit biases” may shape health care providers’ behaviors thereby affecting care for patients of color. Implicit bias is a problem for many marginalized groups in the United States as well as for new immigrants from many countries. Yo Veo Salud uses patient-generated and professionally created images to engage health care providers in conversations about ethnicity and migration. This intervention has been successfully piloted using both implicit measures and explicit self-report measures.

About the speaker: Mimi V. Chapman, MSW, PhD, is a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work. Her work focuses on migration and immigrant experience and bias among “high intensity professionals.” With the Envisioning Health team she develops and tests visual and arts-based interventions such as Yo Veo Salud to create more welcoming environments for new immigrants. These interventions are delivered to public schools, pediatric, internal, and psychiatric medical providers.
