I. Update on the SVRI Forum 2013: Evidence into Action, 14 – 17 October, Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel and Towers, Bangkok, Thailand

[http://www.svri.org/4th1.png]<http://www.svri.org/forum2013/>          Pre-conference Workshops:

The SVRI Forum is proud to announce seven pre-conference workshops to be held on Monday 14 October 2013. Please ensure that you book early as space is limited. Workshops are not included in your registration and will need to be paid for separately. Full workshop summaries<http://www.svri.org/forum2013/workshop.htm> are available on the SVRI Forum 2013 website<http://www.svri.org/forum2013/index.htm>.

Workshop 1:  Designing and Analysing Research for Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence: Presenter: Dr Henriette  Jansen (Senior Consultant)
The objectives of this workshop are to discuss some essential principles and challenges when researching violence against women and to provide participants with access to the tools and resources to measure violence against women. This session will build on the experience of the multi-country study undertaken by the WHO, and other VAW studies around the world.

Workshop 2: Ethics in Research on Sexual Violence Perpetration: Presenters: Dr Yandisa Sikweyiya (Medical Research Council) and Ms Elizabeth Dartnall (SVRI)
This workshop will present and workshop “Ethical and Safety Recommendations for Research on the Perpetration of Sexual Violence”, including key concepts, and guiding principles for research on perpetration. The workshop will present and discuss real life ethical challenges on doing research with perpetrators of sexual violence, drawing from presenters and participants’ own experiences of researching perpetration of sexual violence issues.

Workshop 3: Monitoring and Evaluation of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services: Presenters: Dr. M.E. Khan (Population Council)
Well-designed projects that are informed by empirical evidence and designed to allow strong scientific evaluation are crucial if valid conclusions are to be made regarding their effectiveness. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) are important components to any sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care service programme or intervention. It is essential for successful SRH policy and key in securing funds for sustainability of such programmes. Through this workshop, participants will gain knowledge of the fundamental principles and practices of M&E to ensure their service programme or intervention

Workshop 4: Researching Violence against Women with Disabilities (WWD) by Intimate Partners and Other Household Members: Presenter: Professor Jill Astbury (Victoria University)
Using the Triple Jeopardy project on “Gender based violence, disability, other rights violations and access to related services among Cambodian women” and participants’ own experiences of doing violence research with WWDs, this participatory workshop will examine research and ways of using research findings to make a difference and improve the inclusion of WWDs, foster changes in attitudes and eliminate barriers to the full participation of WWDs in all aspects of life.

Workshop 5: Trauma and Safety while Researching Sexual Violence Research: Presenters: Associate Professor Jan Coles (Monash University) and Ms Elizabeth Dartnall (SVRI)
The workshop provides researchers with a much needed opportunity to discuss the personal impact of undertaking sexual violence research while providing them with strategies to prevent and respond to the potential for researcher trauma while undertaking sexual violence research. This valuable workshop will again be taking place at the SVRI Forum 2013!

Workshop 6: Breaking the Cycle: Understanding and Addressing the Intersections of Violence against Women and Violence against Children: Presenters: Ms Alessandra Guedes (PAHO), Dr Catherine Maternowska (UNICEF), Dr Claudia Garcia-Moreno (WHO) and Dr Daniela Ligiero (Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator)
This workshop will examine the evidence regarding the different ways in which violence against women and child maltreatment intersect and where they do not intersect. It will explore the policy and programmatic implications of the evidence for prevention efforts and services, analysing the drivers of violence, the implication of this from the VAW and CM fields and how this affects policy and practice. The workshop will feature a short Research Watch film on approaches to violence.

Workshop 7: Using the UN Multi Country Study on Men and Violence: Presenters: Dr Emma Fulu and Mr James Lang (Partners for Prevention)
The objective of this workshop is to provide an overview on how to conduct rigorous and ethical research with men in order to better understand men’s perpetration and to design more effective primary prevention approaches.

Please visit the SVRI Forum 2013 website<http://www.svri.org/forum2013/> for more information. Abstract submissions<http://www.svri.org/forum2013/abstracts.htm> close 3 June 2013.

II.SVRI Members Requests

1) Request for Materials: Engaging Men from Particular Cultural and Ethnic Backgrounds in Preventing Violence against Women

Michael Flood is asking for help in finding materials and research on engaging men from particular cultural and ethnic backgrounds in preventing violence against women. He is aware of the sizeable literature e.g. on working with female victims / survivors from immigrant or black communities, but would like to know of work on involving men in primary prevention which is focused on particular ethnic or cultural groups or communities. You can contact Michael at: mflood at uow.edu.au<mailto:mflood at uow.edu.au>. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give. [Source: Prevent-Connect].

2) Request for Information: Victim Surveys on Experiences with Criminal Justice Process

Teresa Scalzo from Trial Counsel Assistance Program (TCAP) is requesting information from anyone who is doing surveys (either written or oral) or interviews of victims about their experience with the criminal justice process. More specifically, she would like to know if there is a way to capture feedback from victims on what worked well with the investigation and prosecution and what can be improved. If you are doing surveys or anything else to capture victim input regarding the criminal justice system, please contact Teresa at: adamiranda at yahoo.com<mailto:adamiranda at yahoo.com>. [Source: RAINNet].

3) Request for Participation: Child Pornography Survey

The National Center for Victims of Crime is inviting adult survivors of child sexual abuse involving sexually explicit pictures or videos of the abuse (child pornography) to take an anonymous online survey about the response they received and the help victims need. The survey is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime. It asks about help survivors received, barriers to getting help, and suggestions for improving how victims of these crimes are treated by police, prosecutors, courts, and counselors. It also includes a few general questions about the crimes experienced. Participants are free to skip any questions they do not want to answer, and they will not be asked for any information that could identify them. For more information about this project, including a link to the online survey, visit www.victimsofcrime.org/child-pornography<http://www.victimsofcrime.org/child-pornography>. [Source: RAINNet].
