"Challenging Defenses and Freeing Clients to Live in the Present"
From Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of The Mindful Brain
“Voice Therapy offers a powerful mode of transformation that can free us from the prisons of the past. It provides us with a banquet of insights into the nature of our inner lives and emotional relationships. Bravo!”
Voice Therapy is a cognitive/affective/behavioral approach that quickly taps into core negative beliefs that drive maladaptive behavior. It is highly effective for the treatment of trauma, addiction, depression, and relationship issues. This method combines insight with affect in a way that profoundly shifts client’s point of view toward self and others, to a more compassionate and realistic perspective.
The training is facilitated by Lisa Firestone, PhD and Joyce Catlett, MA. of the Glendon Association. Voice Therapy provides opportunity to deepen your clinical skills; it includes video tape demonstration and valuable opportunity for case consultation.
Approved for 12 CE units for MFT’s, Psychologists, LCSW’s through R. Cassidy Seminars.
(open to students and interns and group rates available)
Prosecutors, Victim Advocates and Law Enforcement fill very specific and integral roles in the criminal justice system. The differences in these roles can often times place these dedicated professionals at odds with each other. One sure thing they have in common is interacting with crime victims on an almost daily basis. Effective communication and collaboration among and between the various groups the crime victim encounters is critical to that victim’s journey through the judicial process. Meeting Challenges in Prosecution and Victim Advocacy provides presentations and discussion forums to foster better understanding and communication among prosecutors, victim advocates and other professionals who regularly work with victims of violent crime.

Peace Over Violence is proud to present the 11th Annual Denim Day in LA 2009, a campaign to raise awareness and educate the public about rape and sexual assault. This year it is Wednesday April 22, 2009.
In 1998, an Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore jeans, reasoning she must have helped her attacker remove them. People all over the world were outraged. Wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.
Last year, on Denim Day an unprecedented 600,000 individuals and organizations signed up to wear jeans in support of raising awareness about the need to end sexual violence. This year we aim to at least double that amount.
This day we unite against the sexual assault of girls, women, boys and men. We stand in support of survivors. We break the silence to end sexual violence.
On Denim Day, wear your jeans as a visible sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault!
This event is an event in which specific San Francisco restaurants, by eating in them on June 4th, will donate up to 25% to 40% of their proceeds directly to SFWAR. All of the funds raised from both of these events will go back into SFWAR's free services.
As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Walk Against Rape will be held on April 25th, 2009.

Come walk with us for a great cause! San Francisco Women Against Rape invites you to participate in our 3rd annual Walk Against Rape. As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Walk Against Rape will be held on April 19th, 2008. The walk is a celebration that empowers survivors, their friends, families and supporters, and serves to break the silence by walking together on the streets against rape, and declare that San Francisco will not tolerate sexual violence. It is a 3.1 mile walk starting at Justin Herman Plaza at 10am and culminating in a rally at noon in Dolores Mission Park. Walkers will arrive in the park to find festivities such as speakers, performances, the Clothesline Project on display, prizes for the highest fundraisers, several community organizations offering information and resources, and food and drink. At SFWAR, we believe that no single individual, organization, foundation, or business alone can stop the epidemic of sexual assault, but by responding as a whole community, we each bring our piece of the solution. This is where your participation counts! Join us as we make visible what has historically been silenced and invisible. For more information, please visit our website at www.sfwar.org or call 415-861-2024.
