Increasing Awareness

Ongoing

Show Hide
 

We receive delegations and representatives from around the world who come to us for information and training resources for clinical practice and sexual assault and domestic violence policy writing. Recently, we have been hosts to visiting delegations from Zimbabwe, Namibia, and South Africa, all sponsored by the Africa Fund.

We have hosted Maria Elena Palomino, District Attorney for Sexual Abuse and Domestic Violence in Mexico, and a group of psychologists from Hiroshima and Osaka hoping to establish Japan’s first crime victim assistance center.

At the request of the United Nations Population Fund, we have also hosted a group of international journalists researching the treatment of sexual assault. We provided consultation to a special UN committee that was creating a manual for third world countries dealing with treatment for rape and domestic violence.
