Why is it important to understand the role confidentiality plays among trusted partners? Understanding confidentiality and its scope is not only crucial for collaborative partners, but also for survivors. Learn about the laws, rules and ethical constraints that govern your partners to avoid conflict when information is not immediately shared. Learn how to navigate the challenges that can happen even among trusted partners.

The IACP and ICF, with Alabama Anti-Human Trafficking Alliance, will be hosting Confidentiality in Collaborative Settings: Building Relationships with Each Other and Survivors on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, between 2:00 – 3:30 p.m., eastern time.

This webinar is a part of OVC’s Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force catalog.
