About the Conference
The groundbreaking 2009 CoWAP Conference was the first of its kind in NYC, highlighting a broad range of approaches being used to intervene with people who abuse in intimate relationships. The second CoWAP conference will continue to explore the complex issues related to prevention of abusive behavior and intervention with domestic violence perpetrators.
This one-day conference is designed for anyone working in the anti-domestic violence movement, as well as other legal and social service professionals who work with survivors, abusers, teens and children impacted by domestic violence and relationship abuse. Experts in the area of domestic violence prevention and intervention will discuss the research, strategies and controversies surrounding abusive partner intervention and prevention.
Registration fee $60. Discounted rates available for a limited number of students, domestic violence survivors, and employees of active CoWAP member agencies.
