We're excited to announce the second joint conference venture between the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition and the Utah Association for Domestic Violence Treatment. Working collaboratively on the conference maximizes our ability to identify and implement a more holistic approach to ending violence in our communities. 

We look forward to this unique VIRTUAL opportuinty to connect with professionals from a variety of disciplines.

Experts from Battered Women's Justice Project will lead a keynote and moderate a panel with other national experts focused on the what, when and how of coordinating community resources.

Day Two | Federal and State Confidentiality Requirements/Collaboration

Alicia Aiken from The Confidentiality Institute will address federal and state confidentiality requirements, as well as the importance of collaboration with respect across professions.

Understanding ‘systems’ better and the role confidentiality plays within systems will also be a core focus of the second day. 

Day Three | Building Community Resilience

Jerry Tello of National Compadres Network will address how we can build strong communities, which in turn will build strong family relationships. Jerry has dedicated his efforts to addressing systems and community transformational healing from the effects of racial inequity and internalized oppression. His ideology is based on a belief that individuals and communities have culturally-based knowledge and wisdom that can prevent and heal the pain of relationship/community violence and racial injustice.
