today for today for 25th Annual Domestic Violence Conference, The Movement Continues: Journey to Safety, Justice and Healing,
which will take place on Friday, October 5, 2018 at the Computer History Museum
in Mountain View. This year, the conference curriculum examines the history of the domestic violence movement as we celebrate 25 years of collaboration, awareness and education to prevent domestic violence in Santa Clara County.
The morning keynote is Brigid McCaw, MD, MPH, MS, the founder and Medical Director of Kaiser Permanente’s Family Violence Prevention Program in Northern California. Dr. McCaw was instrumental in starting the Family Violence Prevention Program at Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center in 1998. This inspiring, innovative and effective model provides a comprehensive and integrated approach to build awareness, provide care, and prevent domestic violence. Dr. McCaw will discuss the creation and evolution of this innovative program, how it has changed the way the medical field addresses family violence today, and learnings for improving family violence prevention in other settings.
The afternoon plenary will include an Emeritus Panel featuring some of the county’s pioneers in domestic violence prevention and intervention as well as current and emerging leaders. They will take us on a journey back to the 1st annual conference and how the county responded to domestic violence 25 years ago. The panel will examine lessons learned along with current and emerging research and practices that will guide us toward a broader, more comprehensive approach to ending domestic violence.
