Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Child and Elder Abuse...From Scene to Courtroom

Join fellow law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, nurses, victim advocates, judges, rape crisis workers, criminalists, crime scene investigators, physicians, military criminal justice and healthcare providers, forensic examiners, and EMS personnel for this cutting edge conference. We will focus on a broad array of emerging forensic practices, in sexual assault, interpersonal violence, human traffi cking, child and elder abuse in both an urban and rural environment.

This conference is designed to provide a multidisciplinary interactive and joint educational opportunity regarding promising practices when working with victims of violence. Topics will include working with multidisciplinary teams and learning to consider all of the forensic implications on the street, in healthcare settings, and in the court room. Since violence is a health care crisis, we will focus on approaching forensic issues in a caring, collaborative, coordinated, compassionate, competent, and victim-centered process.

Description: 

The Ninth Annual Conference theme, The Courage to Act: Working Together to End Bullying, speaks directly to the Board’s hope and outcome for our conference. We gather to be strengthened with new knowledge, research and practices which will inspire, invigorate, challenge and renew our collective courage to act collaboratively to stop bullying. We will hear from outstanding leaders from across the world that will provide research, strategies and solutions for schools and communities in bullying prevention and intervention. A focus of this year’s conference will include the importance of adult, youth partnerships which are critical to our collective efforts. The Board of IBPA is thrilled to have outstanding keynotes presented by Academy Award–winning documentary filmmaker and co‐creator of GroundSpark’s Respect for All Project, Debra Chasnoff, as well as noted authors Stan Davis, Schools Where Everyone Belongs and Empowering Bystanders in Bullying Prevention, and Charisse Nixon, PhD coauthor of Girl Wars: 12 Strategies That Will End Female Bullying. Stan and Charisse are also the cofounders of the Youth Voice Project.Because the mission of the International Bullying Prevention Association is to support and enhance quality research based bullying prevention principles and best practices, we are privileged to have a host of extremely talented workshop presenters that will address a wide variety of topics including cyber bullying, research, prevention and intervention strategies, as well as bullying within special populations. We are excited this year that IBPA will have a specific focus on issues of bullying, hazing and harassment in higher education and athletics. Truly, this year’s conference is reflective of the Board’s belief that we must all courageously work together to address bullying in all its forms and environments.

Description: 

Stalking affects 6.6 million people in the United States each year and stalking victims recount the fear and distress they have experienced as a result of this crime in courtrooms throughout the country everyday. Far too often, these victims’ reports are taken seriously only after the stalkers escalate their behaviors and cause significant property damage, physical harm, or death to their victims. Stalkers create and exploit vulnerabilities in their victims while relying on technology and their ability to manipulate the justice system in order to conceal their crimes and cast doubt on their victim’s credibility. This conference will address the challenges stalking crimes present, the use of technology to commit and conceal the crime and innovative strategies for investigating and prosecuting stalkers and promoting victim safety.AEquitas is partnering with the Stalking Resource Center and the Battered Women’s Justice Project to host a national conference that will include topical and skill building sessions designed to enhance the ability of participants to prosecute intimate partner stalking cases.
