We present an educational forum of best practices, victim-centered policies, promotion of multi-disciplinary dialogue and collaborative community models, along with real-life tools and strategies that professionals take back to their own communities.CCAW's long-term goal is to eliminate violence against women and children, more specifically sexual assault, in every community. We will achieve this by arming attendees with the information needed to identify, respond to, investigate, and prosecute unique, difficult cases successfully. CCAW offers more than 156 workshops, case presentations, hands-on technology seminars, and computer labs that are taught by local and national experts who delve into the complexities of these heinous crimes and provide the most cutting edge, relevant, and creative tools that attendees utilize in their professions. Attendees include professionals that work in the fields of prosecution, law enforcement, social work, counseling, health care, emergency telecommunications, victim advocacy, probation, parole, campus safety and other disciplines that respond directly to female victims of violent crimes.
