Violence in the Lives of People with Disabilities: Emerging Issues and Solutions for 2015 and Beyond
In 2014, the National Crime Victim Survey revealed that people with disabilities face a much greater risk of being victimized compared to those without disabilities (the rate of violent victimization for people with disabilities is nearly three times the rate compared to those without). This webinar addresses emerging issues in the field with a panel of experts and advocates covering topics like: • Using trauma-informed care principles when working with victims with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) • Assisting crime victims with complex communication needs • Supporting victims with specific types of disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASDs) • Responding to bullying of students with disabilities • Supporting people with disabilities in speaking out against violence Webinar participants will be the first to obtain NCCJD’s white paper on the topic of violence, abuse, and bullying which delves even deeper into the issues addressed on the webinar. Join us for this thought-provoking and empowering webinar, and find out how you can reduce violence in the lives of people with disabilities

The Mad Hatter Tea Party
The characters, the garden and the tea party are not the focus of this event. The focus is what happens to Alice while she is in Wonderland. The characters bring challenges and the events bring questions all of which Alice must figure out. She is bullied by the Red Queen. What is critical, is the world she is in is much like the chaotic world we live in. Our youth are trying to fit in. They are searching for who they are. Like Alice, we want our youth to find out who they are and recognize their self-worth.
