Hope Behind Bars: Providing Services to Incarcerated Survivors

“Hope Behind Bars: Providing Services to Incarcerated Survivors” is the second in a three-part series for rape crisis advocates and other community-based service providers. JDI explores what services advocates can provide to inmates, and strategies for providing these services in a detention setting.

This webinar gives an overview of JDI’s publication, “Hope Behind Bars: An Advocate’s Guide to Helping Survivors of Sexual Abuse in Detention,” which includes best practices for providing hospital accompaniment, hotline services, written correspondence, and in-person services to incarcerated survivors. This webinar also features advocates discussing their own experiences of working with survivors in prisons and jails, and how to overcome common barriers in these settings.
