Victim-Advocate Privilege & Confidentiality (Virtual)
Thursday, March 30, 2023, 10:00am-12:30pm (PT)
Hosted by The YWCA of Greater Portland Social Justice Program. The Victim-Advocate Privilege & Confidentiality workshop will explain and clarify the requirements put forth by the State of Oregon for advocates working with domestic and sexual violence, stalking, and human trafficking survivors. We will discuss the importance of confidentiality and privacy and how it enhances survivor safety. Confidentiality protects survivor dignity and autonomy as well as increases the likelihood that survivors feel safe in coming forward to seek the help they need and deserve. We will review VAWA and funders’ confidentiality requirements and discuss releases of information, mandatory reporting, record-keeping and confidentially navigating our working with community partners.
