The Alliance's Annual International Family Justice conference includes training and interactive peer to peer discussions on issues related to the handling of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, elder abuse and stalking cases with special focus on law enforcement response, criminal prosecution, civil legal assistance, and advocacy. Special tracks this year on crime scene investigation, the handling of non-fatal strangulation cases, and Family Justice Centers will provide in-depth training for multi-disciplinary teams.
The Alliance welcomes law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, shelter staff, community-based victim advocates, civil attorneys, judges, therapists, policy makers, elected officials, board members, survivors, parole and probation officers, rape crisis workers, medical personnel, educators, and all others interested in the future of family violence intervention and prevention. The conference faculty includes nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts, advocates, and survivors.
Other areas of focus include leadership in collaborative team models, accountability to survivors, guiding principles and promising practices, and trauma informed care. The conference will also include practical, hands-on training for police officers, prosecutors, advocates, and medical professionals in the day to day handling of domestic violence and sexual assault cases. This year's conference will offer continuing education credits (MCLEs & CEUs) for many of its seminars and POST certification for law enforcement professionals.
Registration for the 2016 Conference opens November 1st.
