At some point, most SART teams write a response protocol. How do teams take their protocol to the next level and make them more effective? This webinar will explore how teams can use research to influence practice when writing and revising protocols. For example, we know anecdotally and through research that offenders prey on or target victims who are less likely to be believed. If all responders applied this research, they would expect a victim to be someone with less power. Protocols would be written that address and reflect the circumstances of those victims with high levels of vulnerability and perceived low levels of credibility. How do teams design and revise protocols that create the conditions for more victims to experience justice and healing? We will explore this topic and look at options that may make a difference in victims’ likelihood of accessing and reporting to the criminal justice system. This webinar will also include concrete ideas for protocol writing and/or revisions
