Description: 

Major advances have been made in the assessment and treatment of traumatic stress in the past 20 years. Despite these advances, the vast majority of those affected by traumatic stress still do not receive any type of services or care. For many, no services are available. Others are reluctant to seek care or do not find the services offered appealing. In addition, treatments are not effective for some who receive them. The effectiveness of services or clinical care may be limited if our conceptualizations, research methods and practices do not match the clinical realities for some trauma survivors.This meeting will provide a forum to discuss innovative strategies for outreach, assessment, treatments and programs that will enable us to deliver services in a wider variety of contexts and reach more trauma survivors. A shift in focus from mental disorder and diagnosis to the promotion of mental health can help reduce stigma and facilitate wider dissemination of information and tools to promote recovery from traumatic stress. Innovations in conceptualization, measurement and clinical methods may help us better understand the diversity of responses to traumatic stress and tailor our services and treatments to groups and individuals with different post-traumatic presentations.

Description: 

How does this conference differ from other child abuse/family violence conferences?Every year, many excellent conferences on youth victimization and family violence take place around the country and the world. Our conferences differ because of their research focus. Our conferences offer a unique opportunity for researchers and scientist-practitioners from many disciplines to come together to share the latest cutting-edge data on the dynamics and consequences of violence and evidence-based prevention and intervention.We also hope that one feature that distinguishes our conferences is collegiality. In addition to the conference sessions, there are numerous opportunities to interact informally at receptions, breakfasts, and lunches where you can dine with Murray Straus, David Finkelhor, journal editors, and others. The number of attendees is small enough to give students and senior people alike a chance to mingle and meet others with similar interests. Many fruitful collaborations have arisen from our meetings. We hope to make the 2012 conference the most interactive of all!Can people who are not researchers attend? Are students welcome?Absolutely! At previous meetings, participants have included professionals and graduate students from psychology, sociology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, women's studies, law, criminology, criminal justice, anthropology, medicine, public health, and child development. We are especially interested in encouraging students to attend and present. For 2012, we are adding a data blitz option for poster presentations that is an especially good opportunity for students to get experience presenting in a brief format and promote their work.What is the conference format?This year we are adding two new formats, 20X20 presentations and a data blitz, to the three traditional types of submissions, papers, symposia, and posters. There is also our invited program of outstanding researchers giving longer addresses. 20 x 20 presentations are fast-paced slide presentations. The name comes from the standardized format: each presentation is 20 slides set on a 20-second automatic advance (totaling 6 minutes, 40 seconds). The 20-second advance favors slides that focus on a few (even one or two) words or images, not densely packed text. A data blitz gives each poster presenter 3 minutes and 3 slides to present their key findings. Traditional poster presentations will be accepted both with and without a data blitz component. Oral paper presentations are talks of approximately 20 minutes each. We will also accept proposals for symposia comprised of 3 or 4 papers focused on one theme.

Description: 

The Scientific and Organization Committee cordially invites you to attend and register for the third International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector "Linking local initiatives with Global Learning".Work related aggression and violence within the health and social services sector is a major problem which diminishes the quality of working life for staff, compromises organizational effectiveness and ultimately impacts negatively on the provision and quality of care.  These problems pervade both service settings and occupational groups.Considerable attention and advancements in addressing this problem have been achieved from service and organizational perspectives nationally and internationally.  Following two successful conferences in 2008 and 2010 in Amsterdam, the 3rd International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector, will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from October 24-26 2012.  In addition to raising awareness the 2012 conference will provide a platform to share international developments, with a particular emphasis on best practice research and initiatives to effectively respond to the problem.
