Topic tracks span intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, children exposed to violence, at risk youth, criminal justice issues, sexual assault, people with disabilities, treatment of victims and offenders, elder abuse, trauma, and more.

We have strived to infuse our theme of Working Together to End Violence, Abuse and Trauma - Best Practices: Compassion in Action” into the presentations as well as into the thoughtfulness and professionalism reflected in the Conference content.

September 10th, 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the World Suicide Prevention Day: ten years of research, ten years of prevention, ten years of education and dissemination of information.The efforts of this decade are founded on research evidence that we can prevent suicide. Indeed, the most important aim of this initiative, organized by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO), is raising awareness among the scientific community and the general population that suicide is preventable. Hence we must reduce the stigma and silence that still surrounds it.The theme of World Suicide Prevention Day this year is "Suicide Prevention across the Globe: Strengthening Protective Factors and Instilling Hope".Please visit www.iasp.info/wspd/ for more information and resources.
