This manual aims to help sexual violence advocates and other victim services providers to support survivors of sexual abuse in detention. Prisons and jails are culturally distinct environments that are often unfamiliar to advocates. This manual addresses these and other concerns, while offering guidance to service providers on how to work with survivors in custody. Sexual violence advocates can provide a lifeline for incarcerated survivors who are struggling to heal in the aftermath of a sexual assault.
