The 2022 Americas Conference to End Coercive Control is a two-day virtual conference examining the breadth of coercive control in the Americas. The ACECC seeks to help advocates, DV professionals, survivors, court professionals, mental health professionals, and social workers with cutting edge research and resources to aid victims, to educate the public and to introduce legislation that outlaws coercive control as have Britain, Scotland, France, Ireland and Wales.

- Track Three: Institutionalized Coercive Control (Courts, Police, Religious & Social groups): How coercive control plays a role in society’s institutions, laws, and further traumatizes victims.

WORKSHOP: Sheri will also present, “THE MORALITY OF TECHNOLOGY: Considerations When Recommending Tech Tools for Vulnerable Populations”
Technology has increasingly become a necessity for professionals, agencies, and organizations since the pandemic. The speed for which available tools come to market can cause confusion as to which ones should be recommended for vulnerable populations to use.
We will discuss vast considerations that should be vetted before a product or tool should be recommended. This workshop will use an example of domestic violence and stalking crimes and will explore the history and governance that oversee victim data, describe the technology types used, look at liabilities faced by the recommending entity, discuss the consequences of user experience, legal proceedings and how the information interacts with the case, and community access and inclusion.
Objectives of this workshop include the following:
- Explore the four key areas of documentation-based tech tools: Evidence, Legal, Security, and Technology
- Explain all of the information in terms and analogies that can be understood by any non-professional in any of the areas in the preceding bullet (human language)
- Know the federal regulations and legal standards that must be followed and how they may apply to the technology
- Understand how information moves from entry point to exit point
- Identify the different levels of technology ownership
- Examine the liabilities to ownership and or recommendation of the technology
- Discuss the legal and moral responsibilities to users
- Gain a basic understanding of how victim behavior can influence the interactions and outcomes of the technology recommended
- Learn about the different entry/access types
- See how different prompts affect outcomes
- Learn when, how, and to whom those different outcomes may be delivered
- Know the responsibilities to divisions of justice including defense discovery and training
