Description: 

This Conference has become a unique forum for people from all disciplines and philosophies to gather for in-depth exchange of current information on all facets of violence, abuse and trauma prevention, intervention and research. We are one of the very few conferences that actually includes researchers, practitioners, advocates, consumer-survivors, and front-line workers from all disciplines to share information, discuss controversial issues, and have the difficult dialogues. Topic tracks span intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, children exposed to violence, at risk youth, criminal justice issues, sexual assault, people with disabilities, treatment of victims and offenders, elder abuse, trauma, and more. This year’s Conference also includes the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence Across the Lifespan Summit and Research Sessions: A Conference within A Conference! We have strived to infuse our theme of Working Together to End Violence, Abuse and Trauma - "Collaboration & Commitment for Change” into the presentations as well as into the thoughtfulness and professionalism reflected in the Conference content.For more information call 858-527-1860 x4030 or email.

A two-part training led by Viktoria Kristiansson of AEquitas: The Prosecutors' Resource on Violence Against Women.

  • Intimate Partner Sexual Assault 

This presentation will examine the devastating dynamics of sexual assault by an intimate partner including the use of power and control in a battering relationship. It will provide an overview of intimate partner sexual assault, the impact on victims and the resulting behavior and the importance of a coordinated community response to this crime. Prosecutors and allied professionals will be better able to recognize and respond to common challenges in these cases including the reluctant victim, victim intimidation and manipulation and confronting the misperceptions of the judge or jury.

  • Overcoming the Consent Defense: Prosecuting the Non-stranger Rapist 

This session will examine the dynamics of non-stranger sexual assault, identify the challenges in investigating and prosecuting these cases, and explore strategies for overcoming these challenges. The presenter will discuss the characteristics of the non-stranger rapist and how they challenge traditional perspectives of investigators, prosecutors, judges and juries. Additionally this presentation will address the unique vulnerability of victims in non-stranger rape situations. This presentation will highlight the importance of an offender-focused approach throughout the investigation and prosecution. Additional topics include common defense questions and rape myths that can be barriers to a successful prosecution.
