Identifying and Advocating For High Needs Clients
Riddhi Mukhopadhyay, YWCA Sexual Violence Legal Services
Advocates seek to provide thoughtful, client-centered services to a survivor left vulnerable and traumatized after they have experienced sexual violence. But what do you do when the client may feel difficult to work with because of their own personality or background? How do you advocate for a nonresponsive client, a client with cognitive disabilities, or a client who is in constant chaos? We will look at common client scenarios and how to identify and proactively respond to survivors who may need extra attention or special assistance, with the objective of providing participants with concrete resources and strategies.

Coweeman Room  
In Her Shoes: Living with Domestic Violence
