Event Details

The Learning Collaborative on Sexual Assault Survivors with I/DD

In January/February 2018, the MA Disabled Persons Protection Commission (DPPC) VOCA funded project will host four regional, in-person multi-disciplinary case discussions. The goals of the discussion groups are: 1) to deepen staff knowledge about sexual assaults committed against individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and, 2) to integrate service delivery and/or training between Department of Developmental Services (DDS), Rape Crisis Centers (RCCs), Awareness and Action (A & A) trainers and DPPC.  At the start of this gathering, we will discuss whether to adopt SAMSHA’s principles of “Trauma-Informed Care” for our collaborative work together (draft principles will to be distributed to registrants prior to event). During the second half of the gathering, we will discuss  how sexual assault survivors with I/DD can now connect with the DPPC’s new SARU unit services and address questions raised during our previous Collaborative gathering.

Joanna Bridger, Clinical Services Director, Riverside Trauma Center, will facilitate the case discussions. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the MA Building Partnerships Initiative. Please register early to reserve a seat in your service region. Please contact Joanna Bridger at: in advance of the gathering if there are additional topics you would like ot add to our agenda.
