Our theme for this year’s conference is “Bringing Justice to the System.” The concept of “justice” is elusive to many survivors. We all have a role in helping victims of sexual violence find “justice” in a system that is historically weighted to protect the interests of the accused. Victim advocates, law enforcement, medical personnel, educators, therapists, and other service providers can all make a positive difference in the outcome experienced by survivors. This conference will help energize, educate, empower, encourage, and embolden us to do our best work in our respective disciplines.
In addition to the general workshops, there will be specialized trainings in primary prevention, diversity, leadership/administration, technology, advanced clinical and volunteer management.
Who Should Attend:
• Criminal Justice Personnel
• Sexual Assault Workers
• Social Workers
