A CALL TO MEN
Description

September 14 - 15, 2017

A CALL TO MEN’s 2017 National Conference will explore the Many Faces of Manhood. Through engaging keynotes, roundtable discussions and interactive breakout sessions, attendees will learn how the collective socialization of men creates a fertile ground for violence and discrimination against women and girls. Those same notions of sexism and inequality hold men hostage to the rigid norms of manhood. A CALL TO MEN will convene influential and passionate voices to examine healthy, respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith communities and around issues of gender. As men are empowered to be their authentic selves, we will collectively create a world where all men and boys are loving and respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.

Conference Speakers Include:

DR. BETH RICHIE Director, Institute of Research on Race & Public Policy, University of Illinois - Chicago

RUS FUNK Co-Founder, North American Men Engage Network WADE DAVIS Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, YSC

Description

APSAC pioneered the Forensic Interview Training Clinic model to focus on the needs of professionals responsible for conducting forensic/investigative interviews with children in suspected abuse cases. Interviews with children have received intense scrutiny in recent years and increasingly require specialized training and expertise. This comprehensive Clinic offers a unique opportunity to participate in an intensive 40 hour training experience and have personal interaction with leading experts in the field of child forensic interviewing. Developed by top experts, APSAC’s curriculum teaches a structured narrative interview approach that emphasizes best practices based on research and is guided by best interests of the child. Attendees will receive a balanced review of several protocols and will develop their own customized narrative interview approach based on the principles taught during the Clinic and contained in the 2012 APSAC Practice Guidelines on Forensic Interviewing in Cases of Suspected Child Abuse.

Center for Sex Offender Management
Description

Supervising individuals who have sexually offended is an essential element of a comprehensive approach to reducing and preventing sexual violence. Such supervision strategies must be evidence-informed, collaborative, and responsive to survivors’ rights, needs, and interests. The Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) and the Resource Sharing Project (RSP), with support from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), have embarked on a partnership aimed at increasing understanding and practical application of a victim-centered approach to supervising these individuals. As part of the initiative, this webinar series is designed to address a variety of information needs identified by victim advocates and supervision officers, but other stakeholders with an interest in learning about these issues are welcome to participate.

Registration is required; register here for individual sessions or the entire series.
