Event Details

Each year, more than 3 million individuals in the United States are abused by their intimate partner, of those 1,200 women are murdered, and 1 in 20 males are murdered by their partner. These victims of homicide or attempted homicide are often unaware that their lives are in danger prior to the attack.

This conversation will review:

• Provide access and exposure to the Danger Assessment tool.
• Indicators that have a high correlation of lethality when present among intimate partners.
• To discuss the lack of Danger Assessment tools to assess cis-males and gender variant individuals.

Dr. Stacy Knight, (Registered Psychologist 2012929), Riley Center’s Community Office Program Manager will be leading the discussion and reviewing this invaluable tool with us.

Suggested Audience includes: Members of the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium, Human Service Agency employees, social workers, domestic abuse advocates, criminal justice workers, law enforcement, and health care professionals, clergy, students, family members and friends.

We look forward to having this important conversation with you! Please join us on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 from 12 noon – 2PM at the Riley Center Community Office for this important discussion.


Speakers Biography:

Dr. Stacy Knight is the Community Office Program Manager and Psychologist at the St. Vincent de Paul Society of San Francisco - The Riley Center. Specializing in pediatric psychology and trauma, Dr. Knight has extensive training in Autism Spectrum Disorder, dysregulation disorders, and developmental delays. Additional areas of training include childhood and adult trauma treatment and neuropsychological assessment. Dr. Knight first began her work in intimate partner violence through academic research in parent-child attachment. Research in parent-child attachment identity led to a passion to support survivors of intimate partner violence. Supporting underrepresented communities - people of color and LGBTQ communities - has guided her understanding of specific challenges these communities face, which is integral to her approach as a Program Manager and clinical work. Dr. Knight presented on Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Black American Community at the United Nations General Assembly 68th Session for Millennium Development Goals and the other Internationally Agreed Development Goals for the Persons with Disabilities, in accordance with Resolution 66/124 (A/RES/66124).

TICKETING

How much are tickets? They’re free!

Why are we ticketing? They help us track when a program fills up, so you can have the best seat available. We have limited the number of tickets to 30, once those tickets are reserved we will be taking names for a wait list.

How do the tickets work? Eventbrite will email your ticket, so either print it out or show us on your phone. It’s that simple.

Are seats assigned? No. Doors open 15 mins before show time, and seats are first come, first served. So get there early if you have specific seats in mind.

What if I don’t get a ticket? You can still come, but those with tickets get in first. 10 mins before show time, those with no tickets will be let in.

Can chilldren attend?

There will be no childcare for this program and we will not be allowing children for this specific reason.
