Confidentiality: The Cornerstone of Safety, Trust & Privacy For Survivors!

For any victim service agency or community organization working with survivors of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, maintaining confidentiality is paramount to preserving the safety, privacy, and trust of those seeking assistance. Confidentiality is a critical element in your role as an employee or volunteer in these organizations. This workshop offers the basics on this important topic. Join Amy Miller, CCADV Executive Director, to explore the importance of confidentiality by learning important definitions and about the obligations and challenges to maintaining confidentiality and privilege, by exploring the differences between privacy, confidentiality, and privilege, and by reading and applying skills when responding to scenarios, and more. You will also be provided with an opportunity to ask related questions.
