Supporting Domestic and Sexual Violence Survivors in the Library
Monday, July 4
Monday, July 4 – Sunday, July 31, 2022.
Domestic and sexual violence occurs in every community; it does not discriminate based on age, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic location, or education level. This course will provide library staff with the tools necessary to provide services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence of all ages within their community. We will review what domestic and sexual violence is, identify implicit bias we hold, and develop an understanding of the unique information needs of survivors. Library staff who take this course will use this information to identify best practices for developing materials in the library, developing trauma-informed policies and procedures, and identify potential community partnerships. This course will be most impactful for public and academic library staff, but all library staff are welcome.
