Trauma-Informed Training for Adjudicators and Appeals Panels from trainED

Live Webcast

Firm Event & Webinar

Presented by: trainED

Are your institution’s disciplinary proceedings and appeals for sexual misconduct complaints conducted by properly trained adjudicators? When a complaint is brought to your institution's attention, can you trust the matter will be adjudicated effectively and sensitively?

The Campus SaVE Act requires that an institution’s disciplinary procedures be conducted by officials who have received annual training on issues related to sexual assault and VAWA crimes, and on conducting a disciplinary process that protects the safety of the victim and promotes accountability.

Likewise, Title IX requires institutions to provide regular training to individuals involved in their disciplinary process that covers a number of specific topics, including the effects of trauma; the proper standard of review; consent and the role of drugs or alcohol in the ability to give consent; and more.

Prior to making an initial determination or deciding an appeal, your decision-makers must receive training in these topics.

To ensure that everyone in your disciplinary process is compliant with these training requirements, join us for our two-hour Trauma-Informed Training session. This training is appropriate for officials responsible for making initial determinations or deciding appeals, as well as Title IX coordinators and deputy coordinators.

This training will cover:

  • An overview of Title IX and the SaVE Act
  • The role and responsibilities of a decision-maker
  • The effects of trauma
  • Other legally required training topics under Title IX and the SaVE Act
  • Best practices for decision-making
  • Special considerations for deciding appeals
