Non members in Florida please contact to register

Libraries are in a unique position to offer resources and referrals to those experiencing domestic and sexual violence and stalking. In this webinar, Miranda will teach you how to identify the signs of domestic/sexual violence and stalking, what/when/how to say something to a survivor, and how to provide resources to someone who does not disclose abuse.

You will learn how to: 

1) Identify your role as a mandatory reporter and understand how to file a report;
2) Recognize best practices for listening to a disclosure; and
3) Select ways to improve your library's programs and procedures for survivors.
