Prevention is key, no matter the arena: child, elder or domestic abuse.

Learn how to identify abuse and prevent it with the 2018 Abuse Prevention: Early Recognition Summit in Newport, Oregon. The event features experts from around the region who will help to increase awareness for the problems we face today, as well as to share success stories and resources that will help build a stronger and safer community.

Keynote speaker will be Dr. Judy Neighbours, licensed psychologist and associate director of the Survivor Advocacy and Resource Center at Oregon State University. She will discuss Trauma Informed Care.

Additional sessions will address issues such as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Karley’s Law, Darkness to Light - child sexual abuse identification, domestic violence and neglect of children, elders, and those with developmental disabilities.

This free summit is open to all interested individuals, especially clinical staff, law enforcement, emergency responders, business owners and community members.

 Continuing education credits are currently pending, but we expect them to be available.
