Webinar recorded on April 3, 2013.

This JDI webinar covers the juvenile detention system, focusing on the crisis of sexual abuse facing youth detainees. Expert presenters review the offenses that most often result in the incarceration of young people, and the types of facilities that are used to detain them. The session also looks at the newly released Prison Rape Elimination Act standards, which apply to youth facilities.

The webinar features talks by community advocates as well as survivors of sexual abuse in youth detention. These perspectives help shed light on why so many youth detainees -- one in eight overall -- are sexually victimized, and on the impact of this abuse on youth and their communities. This webinar is the first in a three-part series on sexual violence in youth detention.

Who Should Attend:

This webinar is aimed at advocates and service providers -- rape crisis center staff, counselors, and administrators -- though anyone who works in the victim services field is encouraged to watch. Corrections officials, law enforcement, and other professionals in related fields are also invited.

One in Eight is the first in a three-part series of webinars on providing services to survivors of sexual abuse in juvenile detention. The series is part of JDI's National Sexual Violence in Detention Education and Resource Project, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women. JDI is an international health and human rights organization that seeks to eliminate sexual violence in all forms of detention.
