Download Webinar Handouts

Privacy, confidentiality, and privilege are cornerstones of victim recovery and victim services. With these as our foundation, informed consent prior to information sharing is the next building block. On this webinar, national experts Casey Gwinn, President of Alliance for HOPE International, and Meg Garvin, Executive Director of the National Crime Victim Law Institute (NCVLI), discuss privacy, confidentiality, privilege, informed consent, and information sharing in the context of Family Justice Centers (FJCs). Presenters highlight best practices for upholding victims’ rights in ways that empower victims and help Family Justice Centers to deliver coordinated, multidisciplinary, hope-centered services to survivors.

On this webinar, attendees gain a deeper understanding of:

  • Federal laws surrounding confidentiality, informed consent, and information sharing
  • Ways to uphold victims’ rights during Family Justice Center intake processes
  • The importance of privilege, its role in client intake processes, and how it protects client information
  • Concrete steps towards creating a trauma-informed, hope-centered intake process that gives survivors full control over their information and offers coordinated, multi-disciplinary services to survivors
