Interactive exercises and case studies, which incorporate an understanding of pornography, will be used to teach attendees concrete and practice strategies to provide culturally responsive services to Black sexual assault survivors in the criminal justice and mental health settings. Specifically, attendees will identify prevalence rates and risk factors for sexual victimization in the lives of Black girls and women and will learn prevention and intervention strategies that are evidence-based and culturally responsive.
