2019 Utah Sexual Violence Conference

Registration is no closed.

11 CEU's Approved by NASW, Utah Chapter

The Utah Sexual Violence Conference is a world-class event that brings together hundreds of survivors, community members, and professionals working in the field of sexual violence prevention and response. Whether your goal is to contribute expertise and help drive change in the area of sexual violence, learn from your peers and adopt new practices, or connect with like-minded professionals who are solving everyday challenges, make plans now to attend the Utah Sexual Violence Conference.

The Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, Utah Sexual Violence Council, and Utah System of Higher Education will host the 2019 Utah Sexual Violence Conference from March 28th and 29th, 2019.

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. This conference will introduce new perspectives on the challenges we face individually through our therapeutic, crisis intervention, or criminal justice responses. We hope 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.

Keynote Speaker: 

Jenna Quinn, M.S., Jenna's Law

Jenna Quinn is the author of Pure In Heart, a TED speaker, and the namesake of Jenna’s Law. Passed in 2009, Jenna’s Law was the first child sexual abuse prevention education mandate in the U.S named after a survivor. It requires each school district to adopt and implement a prevention policy that educates students and teachers on how to recognize and report child sexual abuse. Now, over half the country has adopted legislation reflecting the principals of Jenna’s Law education.
With a Masters Degree in Communications, she has reached international audiences, educating and sharing her inspiring story with legislatures, law-enforcement, abuse-prevention groups, schools, communities of faith, nonprofit organizations, and the general public for fourteen years. As a survivor who benefited from the services of the Children’s Advocacy Center, Jenna has worked with over 100 CAC’s across the country. She is the National Spokesperson for Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe and has participated in both local and international radio, television, and news programs, dedicating her life to preventing child sexual abuse through education and legislation.

Keynote Speaker:

Emily Capito, LCSW, MBA, RYT

Cultivating resilience is perhaps the most important work we can do to find ongoing meaning and impact in our work with clients. Em practices, writes and facilitates experiences that build holistic mind-body resilience, blending in mindfulness, meditation, experiential work and yoga therapy. Her greatest joy though is working with helping professionals to bridge these gaps in our own lives, so that we can hold space for the trauma, loss and chaos that walks through our doors every day in this challenging and rewarding work we get to do. Em holds a Master’s degree in social work from the University of Utah and is a LifePower Yoga Teacher and Dharana Meditation Teacher.
