Attendees will be provided an overview of what legal issues fall within the civil system and what issues fall within the criminal system. We will discuss the different roles within each system and what a victim/survivor can expect. We will also integrate an overview of the VRA in Colorado. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of how to help a victim/survivor navigate these systems and how to provide a robust array of options without providing legal advice.
