Working with Youth Who Have Been Sexually Assaulted Backgrounder  

This backgrounder will address the special challenges and considerations of working with youth, including coordinated responses.

Violence Link Backgrounder

CCWS is currently developing a Backgrounder which will provide an overview of the link between gender-based violence and violence perpetrated against animals.  Over the past twenty years, a growing body of research has demonstrated a clear relationship between interpersonal violence and animals, one in which violence against animals and violence against people are not distinct, separate problems but rather co-existing issues.  This backgrounder will be available by May 2021.

ICAT Orientation Manual

CCWS is currently developing an ICAT Orientation Manual.  The Manual will serve as an introductory resource for new ICAT members who may not have immediate access to ICAT training, and should be read prior to the Best Practices Manual.  It will briefly outline some important aspects of the ICAT process, such as membership, member responsibilities, meeting structure, and privacy and information sharing.  The ICAT Orientation Manual will be sent to ICAT co-chairs upon completion.
