When the Offender is a Victim: Community Corrections’ Response to Prison Rape

When the Offender is a Victim: Community Corrections’ Response to Prison Rape is proudly presented to you by CEQ American Probation and Parole Association. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

This is a recording of a webinar broadcast live on February 27, 2013


(Please note: There were a few technical difficulties experienced during the live recording of this event.  Where possible, the technical issues have been edited; however, not all issues were able to be fixed.)


 On September 4, 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA), the first ever federal legislation addressing the issue of sexual abuse and assault within correctional settings. Unfortunately, the name of the act can be misleading--it is not just about prisons and it is not just about rape. PREA and the recently released national PREA standards address all types of sexual abuse and misconduct in all custodial correctional settings, including prisons, jails, police lock-ups, juvenile detention facilities, and community residential settings.

This webinar provides critical information about PREA, discusses the role of community corrections in addressing and preventing corrections-based sexual abuse, and highlights ways in which community corrections professionals can more effectively respond to those who have been sexually victimized within correctional settings.


Learning Objectives
By the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Describe the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) and its implications for community corrections agencies.
• Discuss the short- and long-term impact that corrections-based sexual abuse can have for victims.
• Identify appropriate strategies to respond to victims of corrections-based sexual abuse within community corrections settings.
