“Spend two days with us and your colleagues as we explore aspects that factor into the bigger picture of gender-based violence and response.  We will hear from The Full Frame Initiative, Futures Without Violence and others on topics including well-being, immigration, sexual coercion and violence, prevention, athletics, procedural justice, bias and culture, trial advocacy and more, highlighting that the whole is indeed greater than the sum of its parts.
In 2017 we will focus on “the Bigger Picture” of gender-based violence featuring:

  • The work of the Full Frame Initiative, an organization that works with systems to break cycles of poverty, violence, trauma and oppression by increasing access to wellbeing, especially for the marginalized;
  • The work of Futures Without Violence, specifically: 1) Changing Minds Campaign to End Childhood Trauma, 2) Audrie & Daisy film screening and discussion, and 3) Coaching Boys into Men program
  • The work of the Center for Court Innovation on Procedural Justice and Domestic Violence
  • The work of Caprice Hollins, Psy.D. with Cultures Connecting
  • Several presentations on issues impacting immigrant and refugee survivors
  • An array of other workshops that address contextual factors surrounding domestic and sexual violence and response.”
