She has also worked with Praxis to conduct Safety and Accountability Audits in a number of settings. Rose is also co-founder of the Gender Violence Institute in Clearwater, MN.

Description: Following our webinar on research showing the effectiveness of advocacy and particularly the advocate initiated response, Rose Thelen will present on this approach to engaging victims caught up in the criminal justice system. Rose will discuss the history, philosophy, and rationale behind this approach as well as concerns of advocacy programs who haven’t used this intervention. These interventions require cooperative agreements with local police and Rose will share her experience working with law enforcement and developing protocols for police contacts.  Managing contacts and training staff and volunteers will also be addressed. In other words, everything you need to know to use the advocate initiated response.
