April 2014
April 25, 2014 - Friday
April's Final Friday's Webinar
In the United States, April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In recognition, APA is hosting the webinar, “Rape on Campus: Effective Prosecution of Sex Offenders at Institutes of Higher Education” on Friday, April 25th from 3:00 – 4:00pm (EDT).  Studies commissioned by the National Institute of Justice estimate that 20-25% percent of women are raped in college, and that, in 79-90% of cases, the perpetrator was not a stranger, but rather an acquaintance, friend, or other non-stranger. Non-stranger rapists are adept at creating, identifying, and manipulating perceived vulnerabilities in their victims through the use of premeditated tactics and non-traditional weapons. This presentation will focus on alcohol-facilitated sexual assaults, with an emphasis on non-stranger rapists (e.g., motivations and characteristics, myths and misconceptions, serial and crossover offending, etc.). John F. Wilkinson, Attorney Advisor for AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women, will also discuss strategies for overcoming the unique challenges these offenders present on college campuses. One substantive CLE credit has been applied for from the Virginia State Bar. If you would like to download a flyer click here. **Please click HERE to register**
