Campus Safety Planning: Remedial Measures, Schedule Mapping, and No Contact Orders

Date: August 16, 2016Length: 1.5 hours

Summary:

Whether it is a single incident or an ongoing pattern of abuse, sexual assault can undermine a victim's physical and emotional safety. Effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security. No Contact Orders (NCOs) can be a key piece of a survivor's safety plan and, when implemented and enforced in conjunction with schedule mapping, are invaluable tools. This session addresses the unique challenges of creating a safety plan that meets the specific needs of victims in a campus environment, explores how safety planning for sexual violence can be different than safety planning for domestic violence, and discusses strategies for protecting victim privacy and safety.
