The Institute on Domestic Violence in the African American Community's June 2003 Forum on African American Children will examine the impact of domestic violence on children and recommend ways in which the African American community can collaborate with helping institutions to address the devastating effects that violence has on children and child development. The conference also will recommend interventions that may be more responsive. During the Forum, noted authorities on the subject will look at the Impact of Domestic Violence on Children; Out of Home Placement; and the affects of Children Who Witness, Use and are Victims of Violence. Authorities also will critique the system, community and family issues that either help or hinder a child's capacity to negotiate domestic violence in the community and in the family. The affects of domestic violence on children will be examined from pre-school through adolescence, as well as other parts of the life span.



APRIL 3-4, 2003 Embassy Suites North - AUSTIN, TX

In an effort to promote equity within victim services and improve access for under-served victims of gender-based violence, Arte Sana will be hosting a national training institute in April. Our keynote presenter will be Melissa Farley, a national expert on sexual trafficking and prostitution who has worked on issues of violence against women for the past 25 years. This institute will be a multi- disciplinary gathering directed at victim service professionals, community activists, law enforcement, medical personnel, therapists, artists, and poets working to reduce gender-based violence in our communities. The Institute’s aim is to promote ideas, tools, strategies, and program models that might help advocates and allied professionals bridge the gaps in services and become agents of change in their fields and in their communities.

CEUs: Arte Sana is applying for continuing education credits for the following disciplines: Social Work, LPC, TCLEOSE. Certificates of attendance will be awarded.

REGISTRATION: Conference registration fee is $180 per person prior to the deadline.
