Description

Please join us for the 16th Annual North Texas Facing Family Violence Conference hosted by the Collin County Council on Family Violence (CCCFV).

Founded in 2003, our annual conference is one of the ways we achieve our mission to eliminate and respond to family violence through a coordinated, comprehensive effort, which includes education, prevention, intervention, and seamless 24-hour assistance.

This year the conference will be a 3 day professional event from October 17th-19th. The purpose of the North Texas Facing Family Violence Conference is to provide an environment where organizations and individuals have an opportunity to gain valuable insight into current best practices as well as emerging trends in criminal justice response, victim assistance, education, and mental health. The workshops provided during this conference are aimed at addressing the needs of professionals in a variety of different settings and disciplines.

The conference is designed to provide continuing education to many disciplines from law enforcement and first responders to faith leaders, health professionals and counselors. Course topics include approaches related to domestic violence response, sexual assault, trauma-informed care, ethics, survivor impact stories and working with diverse populations. Continuing education credits for CJAD, LMFT, LPC, LCDC, LCSW, LMSW, HRCI, TDCJ-CJAD, TCOLE and human resources.
