The National Sexual Assault Conference (NSAC) is an annual conference that brings together over 1,000 people to share information, advance learning opportunities, and support professional growth to those who work to address the needs of survivors of sexual assault, to raise awareness about sexual assault, and to prevent sexual assault from happening.
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and the National Sexual Violence Resource Center are excited to announce a call for workshop proposals for the 2016 National Sexual Assault Conference, in Washington, D.C., at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park. The theme of the conference is “Hopeful FUTURE, Honored PAST.”
We welcome workshop proposals that focus on the uniqueness and value of sexual assault specific programs and services. Proposals that engage in a culturally competent approach to traditionally underserved populations and those that involve interactive learning techniques and innovative methods are encouraged.
We will be focusing on three categories this year: • Direct Services - Working directly with individuals impacted by sexual violence. • Prevention - Presentation or workshop submissions to the Prevention category should describe efforts to engage communities in the prevention of sexual assault, with an emphasis on primary prevention. Workshop proposals should address the needs of state grantees from the Rape Prevention & Education program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, their partners and/or the programs they support. Proposals should draw on the best available research and / or prevention practices. • Systems/Collaboration
Electronic submissions must be received by 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Monday, December 14, 2015. Applicants will receive notice by February 26, 2016. Read more for instructions on how to submit.
For each workshop session, only one (1) presenter will receive one (1) free conference registration and one (1) night’s lodging at the federal or state government rate, if the presenter’s office is more than 50 miles from the conference site (per government guidelines). If the workshop has multiple presenters, then they must select one individual to receive the one (1) free conference registration and one (1) night’s lodging, as permitted. NSVRC or PCAR will not reimburse for any other expenses incurred by the selected presenter(s) for each workshop.
The publication provides frameworks and examples of prevention work that supports healthy development, protective factors, and resiliency in children, families, and communities. It begins by providing a look into the complimentary field of research and ground work in childhood development and trauma. Next we delve into two nuanced topics: child sexual abuse in Latin@ communities and addressing sexual development for children. The following articles spotlight a new resource tool and the pilot project supported across the state of Washington. It concludes with a Question Oppression and Resources section to help further the conversation about consent.
