Description: 

The Ninth Annual Conference theme, The Courage to Act: Working Together to End Bullying, speaks directly to the Board’s hope and outcome for our conference. We gather to be strengthened with new knowledge, research and practices which will inspire, invigorate, challenge and renew our collective courage to act collaboratively to stop bullying. We will hear from outstanding leaders from across the world that will provide research, strategies and solutions for schools and communities in bullying prevention and intervention. A focus of this year’s conference will include the importance of adult, youth partnerships which are critical to our collective efforts. The Board of IBPA is thrilled to have outstanding keynotes presented by Academy Award–winning documentary filmmaker and co‐creator of GroundSpark’s Respect for All Project, Debra Chasnoff, as well as noted authors Stan Davis, Schools Where Everyone Belongs and Empowering Bystanders in Bullying Prevention, and Charisse Nixon, PhD coauthor of Girl Wars: 12 Strategies That Will End Female Bullying. Stan and Charisse are also the cofounders of the Youth Voice Project.Because the mission of the International Bullying Prevention Association is to support and enhance quality research based bullying prevention principles and best practices, we are privileged to have a host of extremely talented workshop presenters that will address a wide variety of topics including cyber bullying, research, prevention and intervention strategies, as well as bullying within special populations. We are excited this year that IBPA will have a specific focus on issues of bullying, hazing and harassment in higher education and athletics. Truly, this year’s conference is reflective of the Board’s belief that we must all courageously work together to address bullying in all its forms and environments.

Description: 

How does this conference differ from other child abuse/family violence conferences?Every year, many excellent conferences on youth victimization and family violence take place around the country and the world. Our conferences differ because of their research focus. Our conferences offer a unique opportunity for researchers and scientist-practitioners from many disciplines to come together to share the latest cutting-edge data on the dynamics and consequences of violence and evidence-based prevention and intervention.We also hope that one feature that distinguishes our conferences is collegiality. In addition to the conference sessions, there are numerous opportunities to interact informally at receptions, breakfasts, and lunches where you can dine with Murray Straus, David Finkelhor, journal editors, and others. The number of attendees is small enough to give students and senior people alike a chance to mingle and meet others with similar interests. Many fruitful collaborations have arisen from our meetings. We hope to make the 2012 conference the most interactive of all!Can people who are not researchers attend? Are students welcome?Absolutely! At previous meetings, participants have included professionals and graduate students from psychology, sociology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, women's studies, law, criminology, criminal justice, anthropology, medicine, public health, and child development. We are especially interested in encouraging students to attend and present. For 2012, we are adding a data blitz option for poster presentations that is an especially good opportunity for students to get experience presenting in a brief format and promote their work.What is the conference format?This year we are adding two new formats, 20X20 presentations and a data blitz, to the three traditional types of submissions, papers, symposia, and posters. There is also our invited program of outstanding researchers giving longer addresses. 20 x 20 presentations are fast-paced slide presentations. The name comes from the standardized format: each presentation is 20 slides set on a 20-second automatic advance (totaling 6 minutes, 40 seconds). The 20-second advance favors slides that focus on a few (even one or two) words or images, not densely packed text. A data blitz gives each poster presenter 3 minutes and 3 slides to present their key findings. Traditional poster presentations will be accepted both with and without a data blitz component. Oral paper presentations are talks of approximately 20 minutes each. We will also accept proposals for symposia comprised of 3 or 4 papers focused on one theme.

Description: 

The investigation of sexual violence requires the very best from our criminal justice system. The individuals who commit these crimes, particularly those of the most violent nature, must be identified, captured, and brought to justice before they assault again. The investigation of these crimes, however, is remarkably complex and requires extensive cooperation and active communication across disciplines.This two-hour Policy and Practices Forum will convene experienced and knowledgeable subject matter experts in various fields contributing to the investigation and processing of cases involving sexual violence. The presenters, whose experience spans decades, will discuss the complex relationship between law enforcement, science, medicine, and the judicial system. As they will explain, innovative jurisdictional practices and scientific research producing valuable solutions and insight can empower our criminal justice system to better respond to acts committed by sexual predators. The result of these enhanced approaches is the better collection of evidence, faster laboratory testing, improved case management, and more reliable prosecution of offenders.
