Parks This workshop is designed for FVIP Providers and Facilitators. At a minimum, you are going to have challenging/disgruntled participants that come to enroll in your FVIP. In some cases, there may be extreme situations where you feel you may have to "put them out" due to their behavior. Ultimately this is not what you want to happen. This workshop will teach you how to recognize the warning signs or triggers that let you know the participant is getting angry. It will teach you how to validate participants and diffuse situations so you and your participants can be heard and how to use key phrases to calm participants before a crisis happens.   Athena G/H Georgia Sexual Assault Kit and Cold Case Homicide Initiative  Amy Hutsell and Theresa Schiefer In this workshop, presenters will discuss the Georgia Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (GA SAKI) Cold Case Sexual Assault Task Force and new Cold Case Homicide Initiative. The Cold Case Task Force is a collaborative of law enforcement, prosecution and victim serving agencies that work together on cold case sexual assault cases that have resulted from testing of the sexual assault kit backlog. Enhancing the project is an additional focus on cold case homicides with sexual assault components that provides law enforcement agencies statewide with additional resources to seek justice for families of victims in these cases. This workshop will also highlight the Samuel Little serial killings in Georgia that brought attention to the need for these resources. Resources available to cold case sexual assault victims in Georgia will also be discussed.    Athena I/J High Point’s Offender Focused Domestic Violence Initiative  16
