Description: 

The role of intervention in addressing intimate partner violence has become distorted due to a combination of gender neutral advocates, flawed and misrepresented research and the increasing emphasis on evidence based practice. The result is that legislators and communities are withdrawing support from intervention program and the resurgence of strategies that put victims at risk are being promoted. Programs are increasingly finding themselves under attack and having to respond to questions that that they are not prepared to answer. Batterer Intervention Services Coalition of Michigan (BISC-MI) has taken the lead in the last 20 years of bringing together some of the best faculty from around the world to address controversial issues and provide unequaled networking opportunities. This year is no exception. This conference is an unprecedented opportunity to hear and mingle with some of the leading experts from around the world. A variety of thought provoking plenary sessions will address topics of research, culture, women's use of force and how the field can move forward. Additionally, there will be an assortment of workshops which will offer a smaller group experience to explore topics in depth. This conference is bringing together many of the leaders in the field to discuss how to reclaim the narrative and define the future of batterer intervention programming with an emphasis on cultural sensitivity and victim safety focus.

NCCASA’s 2015 Conference, Sexual Violence at the Intersections, will focus on the importance of converging social justice movements, as we work collectively toward equity for all people and a society free of sexual assault and other forms of violence. We will also highlight issues of sexual violence including, but not limited to, campus work (Title IX & Clery Act), military sexual assault, human trafficking, and the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA).  We are looking for workshops that address primary prevention, service delivery & intervention, enhancing agency capacity, outreach, community organizing, and program management & development.
