Target Audience: 

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and behavioral health professionals involved in the care of victims of sexual assault and domestic violence.

 

Program Overview: 

American Indian and Alaska Native women are raped at rates higher than any other race. Despite the alarming rates, sexual assault is still the most underreported crime. In response to this crisis occurring in Indian Country, tribal nations have been developing culturally appropriate programs and adapting existing response models to create appropriate responses to sexual assault.  One such model is the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). SART establishes a multidisciplinary team that collaborates to create a coordinated response to sexual assault. Presenters will share their experiences, challenges, successes and the importance of developing practices and protocols that are responsive to the immediate needs of adult victims of sexual assault victims  and overall benefits to the criminal justice response.

Objectives:

 

Discuss the problem of sexual assault as it existed historically and today;

Explore tribal SART development in Indian country and benefits;
