Registration is now open for the 4th Annual Sexual Violence Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment Conference. The conference represents a new approach to freeing our communities from the pervasive harms resulting from unrecognized and unresolved trauma experienced throughout a lifetime.

Effective sexual violence prevention and response requires the application of a wider lens that recognizes these harms in the context of individual and community settings that include poverty, racism, gender socialization, ableism, lack of health care, housing or education and many more social determinants of individual health and safety.

The intent of the 4th Annual Sexual Violence Prevention, Intervention and Treatment Conference is to introduce new perspectives on the challenges we have been facing individually through our therapeutic, crisis intervention or criminal justice responses. Our hope is that interconnected approaches that combine shared resources and knowledge can increase safety and accountability outcomes from all disciplines for all communities.

This event is open to the public. Professionals working in the sexual violence field or those who are interested in sexual violence issues are invited to attend. This conference will have something for everyone.
