Program 1

International and Regional Conference

International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence and (third topic) - held annually.
In 2016, our annual conference set a new record for attendance with 2,007 individuals participating in our International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, and Engaging Men & Boys. The event was held in Washington, DC March 22-24, 2016. Participants represented all 50 states, 4 U.S. Territories and 15 countries. In addition, 216 participants attended the day-long, pre-conference training on the Sexual Assault Response Team Interactive Scenario. Participants walk away from our conference with new skills, but they also feel energized and supported by an army of peers who share their passion and dedicated work on behalf of survivors.
Our annual conference has been scheduled at specific locations through 2027. We also plan to host smaller regional conferences throughout that time frame.

Live and Archived Webinars

Thousands of people participate in our webinars, either as live events or through the online archives. In 2015 for example, 1,671 people accessed our four most popular archived webinars: Neurobiology of Sexual Assault, Forensic Experiential Trauma Interview (FETI), Effective Report Writing, and Effective Victim Interviewing.

We now offer a total of 11 webinars in our archives, which include the audio recording of the live event along with any handouts and other supplementary materials (e.g., background articles, associated reports, policy templates, sample forms).

Technical Assistance

Each day, staff members respond to requests for information and technical assistance from a broad range of professionals, journalists, survivors, support people, and others. In 2015, we responded to a total of 919 requests for information or assistance. This translates to an average of 77 requests each month.

As we have added an enormous amount of substantive content to our website, we have found that we receive fewer requests for assistance – but the requests we do receive are often far more complex, requiring hours and even days to work through the consultation. More than one-quarter of these requests were for technical assistance consultations with subject matter experts Sgt. Joanne Archambault or Dr. Kim Lonsway.

Almost three-quarters of the requests we received in 2015 were for information that could be handled by staff members other than our subject matter experts. In response, staff members provide a wide range of information, resource materials, templates and other tools. A total of 848 referrals were also provided, for other individuals and organizations who could offer additional support to the person requesting help.

The technical assistance we offer helps professionals and organizations apply current knowledge to support their programming and policy enhancements.

Website and Online Resources

Web statistics demonstrate the value of our online resources for professionals working in the field. In 2015, for example, our website drew more than 185,000 unique visitors. The number of page views surpassed 3.5 million in that same year, with an average of more than 9,600 page views per day. This includes visitors to the EVAWI website, as well as the OLTI and our Start by Believing website.

Visitors also access a wide range of documents and resources from our website. In 2015, more than 550,000 resources were accessed, including published articles, reports, and other training and technical assistance materials. This is an average of more than 1,500 resources and tools accessed every single day during 2015. Yet these figures do not include the Training Bulletins and other e-blasts that are sent to our list of more than 33,000 individuals.

Start by Believing Campaign

Start by Believing is a public awareness campaign uniquely focused on the public response to sexual assault. Because a friend or family member is typically the first person a victim confides in after an assault, each individual’s personal reaction is the first step in a long path toward justice and healing. Knowing how to respond is critical—a negative response can worsen the trauma and foster an environment where perpetrators face zero consequences for their crimes.

Because rapists attack an average of six times, one failed response can equal five more victims. Start by Believing will lead the way toward stopping this cycle, by creating a positive community response, informing the public, uniting allies and supporters, and improving our personal reactions. The goal is to change the world, and outcomes for victims, one response at a time.

Start by Believing was launched during Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April 2011 in conjunction with the International Conference on Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence and Stalking hosted by End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI) April 11-13 in Chicago. The campaign featured unique messaging and campaign materials, web and social media outreach and opportunities for corporate partnership and support.
