Freedom from Sexual Violence

Event: Webinar: Confidentiality & Survivors with Guardians








Confidentiality & Survivors with Guardians

When: October 15th, 2014

1:00 – 2:30 PM MST

When a survivor of domestic or sexual violence has a guardian, questions about privacy and information sharing get complicated quickly.  Who decides whether information can be released?  Does all of the survivor’s information get shared with the guardian?  How do we even know what this guardian’s rights are?

This 90 minute session (co-led by attorneys with expertise in guardianship and confidentiality) will help victim service providers to:

1) Recognize the basic concepts and vocabulary of adult guardianship and substitute decision-making,

2) Acquire simple strategies to determine whether an adult has a legal guardian and what form of guardianship it is, and

3) Analyze some unique circumstances around confidentiality and informed consent that arise when victims of domestic violence or sexual assault have a court-appointed guardian.

Presented by Amy E. Judy, JD, Disability Rights Wisconsin and Alicia Aiken, JD, Confidentiality Institute

Co-Sponsored by Disability Rights Wisconsin and The Safety Net Team at the National Network to End Domestic Violence
