26th Annual Domestic Violence Conference - Friday, October 18, 2019

CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION
The 26th Annual County of Santa Clara Domestic Violence Conference will examine the journey of the survivor of violence from crisis to empowerment. Our goal is to provide practical information for the clinician, medical practitioner, attorney, program administrator, and survivor alike, with a focus on prevention, response and empowerment. Workshops will take a deeper dive into topics such as engaging men and boys, custody laws, safety planning, and holistic approaches to transform violence into empowerment.

Our lunchtime plenary will discuss best practices and challenges relating to Gun Violence Restraining Orders in domestic violence settings, while our morning keynote will provide us with tips on how to promote trauma-informed practices in culturally appropriate ways to foster community engagement and mobilization.

Participants will also receive an update on the County's historic investment in prevention and response for survivors of violence.  

Given anticipated interest and limited space, we urge you to register groups early.​
