This training is funded by the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission, through a grant under the Victims of Crime Act. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the Michigan Crime Victims Service Commission.


Training Description

The internet, social media and electronic devices are impacting survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in ever-changing ways. Advocates need to not only be informed about the problem but also educated about survivors’ rights and remedies. From sexting to doxxing and beyond, this training will provide an online misconduct primer for advocates and discuss criminal and civil legal options for protecting survivors and prosecuting offenders.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Internet Misconduct 101
  • State and Federal Law Developments
  • Case Law Developments: Free Speech, Hate Speech, or Threat?
  • Social Media Policies and the Impact of Social Norms
  • Practical Issues and Electronic Evidence
  • Risk Reduction and Safety Planning
  • Question and Answer Session
