This conference is a forum for people from all disciplines and philosophies to gather together to exchange current information on what we know and do not yet know, and discuss differences and similarities in what we do and how we do it. The conference covers all aspects of violence, abuse and trauma prevention, intervention, and research. This includes intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, youth violence, judicial issues, sexual assault, disabilities, treatment of offenders, elder abuse, trauma, and more. The special theme this year is Moving from Dialogue to Action. The conference collaborating organizations, exhibitors, presenters, and participants bring with them many different experiences, ideas, theories, programs, and techniques. The vision is to bring people and communities together to make a significant positive impact on eliminating all types of violence, abuse and trauma. We are expecting over 1,500 attendees from all over the world for the week’s activities. Please join us for multi-ethnic and multicultural issues and perspectives, multidisciplinary and international perspectives, networking and collaborating with colleagues, cutting-edge research, prevention strategies, policy changes, new methods, criminal justice and legal issues, healthcare approaches, intervention techniques, advanced clinical sessions, informal discussions and conversations with some of the invited speakers, and skill-building opportunities.
