Interpersonal violence and abuse has a traumatic impact on victims and survivors that influences all of their interactions with others. Service providers, faith leaders, law enforcement, court personnel, health care providers, teachers, employers, family, friends, and neighbors all play a role in helping or hindering victim safety and offender accountability. For 2021 we are focusing on two aspects of abuse; stalking and trafficking. Join us as we explore the dynamics of these two subjects from a rural perspective.
The YWCA Conference on Domestic and Sexual Violence and Abuse aims to provide training opportunities for everyone to respond positively and effectively to domestic and sexual violence and abuse. The YWCA annual conference invites experts to share their experience in working with men, women, and children who are impacted by violence and abuse, as well as information on best practices for services and interventions.
