The Zero Abuse Project at Mitchell Hamline School of Law is pleased to announce our fall 2019 conference: Prevention and Healing through Organization and Systems Transformation. The conference will be held Sept. 12–13, 2019 at the RiverCentre in Saint Paul, Minnesota. This event will take attendees beyond being trauma-informed, beyond the role of each individual in trauma prevention, and will focus on the role organizations and systems play in healing from trauma and promoting resiliency in families. It will highlight innovative programs aimed at transforming policy, promoting safety, supporting survivors, and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
- Multi-disciplinary collaboration across court systems and in communities
- Changing systems through policy and legislative initiatives
- Organization and system recognition and response to vicarious and secondary trauma, and self- care
- Professionals and survivors working together to support healing and prevent further abuse
Request for proposals
We are seeking proposals relating to programs and practices in organizations and communities that are successfully engaging survivors in the healing process and working towards the prevention of trauma, abuse, and neglect through organization and systems change.
Presentations will be 60 minutes in length. Proposals must include a presentation description, a discussion of how the session fits into the greater conference theme and individual topic, and bios for all presenters. They must also include what handouts, if known, will be given to participants, and how the material will be presented (PowerPoint, etc.).
Upon selection, presenters must confirm in writing to conduct their presentations and provide electronic copies of their presentation materials pre- conference for publication in the conference materials and/or on the conference app.
Presenters are expected to register for the conference (at no cost) and cover the costs of their own travel and lodging.
Registration opens May 13, 2019.
