Safety Matters: Managing Relationships in Women’s Facilities is a training designed to build capacity among correctional practitioners to implement policies and practices that support safe and healthy relationships with and among incarcerated women. The training is based on research and correctional best practice. At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to use communication skills as a component to effectively manage relationships with incarcerated women respectfully and intervene in unsafe situations.

This is an advanced curriculum designed to build upon pre-existing gender responsive knowledge, motivational interviewing skills, and understanding of Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards and strategies to support sexual safety.
