Conference Description

The 13th Annual International FJC Conference, "The Power of HOPE" hosted by the Family Justice Center Alliance, will include discussions on issues related to the handling of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, elder abuse and stalking cases in the context of the Family Justice Center model.  

 

The Alliance welcomes law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, shelter staff, community-based victim advocates, civil attorneys, judges, counselors, 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 prevention. The conference faculty includes nationally and internationally recognized subject matter experts, advocates, and survivors.




This conference will have a special focus on elder abuse awareness, prevention, and intervention. Other areas of focus include leadership, accountability to survivors, guiding principles and promising practices in the rapidly evolving national and international movement toward Family Justice Centers and other approaches to co-located, multidisciplinary services for victims of family violence and their children. 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.
