2019 Canadian Violence Link Conference

Name

    Location: Chelsea Hotel, Toronto, Ontario
    Website: https://clc.humanecanada.ca

    About the Canadian Violence Link Conference The Canadian Violence Link Conference, by Humane Canada, is an innovative, ground-breaking conference that examines the link between violence against human beings and animals, looking at the vulnerabilities in both populations and how they intersect. In 2017, we brought together 203 professionals from 10 key Canadian sectors that work to prevent and address violence against people or animals for cross-sector training on how to stop the cycles of violence. This was the first time a national conference of this kind happened in Canada, and it has kick-started much-needed action on violence.

    Learning and networking opportunities at #LINK2019:
    Skills to examine the correlation between human vulnerability and animal vulnerability The opportunity to create new networks and relationships that will enhance your work toward ending violence An understanding of the roots of animal abuse and its connection to interpersonal and societal violence An ability to identify the indicators of interpersonal violence and the steps to responding An ability to identify the indicators of animal abuse and the steps to investigation and prosecution of these crimes The opportunity to explore community-level partnerships involving social service providers, prosecutors, animal welfare organizations, the courts and law enforcement agencies, veterinarians and municipal/provincial/federal governments Conference Highlights

    200+ delegates from 10+ sectors across Canada
    Expert speakers on violence prevention for people and animals Cross-collaboration with social workers, police, Crown prosecutors, politicians, anti-violence workers, animal welfare representatives, veterinarians and more Networking events and opportunities Interactive, practical sessions Inclusive and supportive environment Who is this conference for?
    This conference is intended for social workers, police officers, animal cruelty enforcement personnel, judges, anti-violence advocates, politicians, bureaucrats, Crown prosecutors, animal welfare advocates, policy experts, veterinarians and RVTs. More than 200 professionals from across Canada attended our 2017 conference to focus on how sectors can work together to improve Canada’s response to violence. This cross-sectoral collaboration has led to a number of powerful insights and proposed strategies to prevent and address violence against people and animals.

    What is the violence link?
    Violence against animals and violence against people are not distinct and separate problems. Rather, they are part of a larger pattern of violent crimes that often co-exist. Research shows a significant correlation between animal cruelty and crimes of domestic violence, the physical and sexual abuse of children, sexual assault and other violent crimes. This emerging concept that looks at the relationship between violence against animals and people is commonly known as the violence link and has evolved to encompass prevention and intervention practices to reduce vulnerability in animals and humans. This conference will highlight the latest research and promising new practices to advance the criminal justice and social service responses to the violence link, bringing together the field’s leading experts in the areas of law, enforcement, behaviour, interpersonal violence, veterinary medicine and social services.

Treating Chronically Traumatized Children: The Sleeping Dogs Method
Special PTSD Edition with Bonus Material
Presented by Arianne Struik
Live Stream Option (see Envision website for details)

Envision
    Location: Vancouver, BC
    Website: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/treating-chronically-traumatized-children-the-sleeping-dogs-method-tickets-64753434265

    The treatment of severely traumatized children and adolescents usually focuses on helping the child and the family to process their traumatic experiences with EMDR therapy. But in some cases children cannot or do not want to participate in EMDR therapy. These children may for example refuse to talk about their traumatic memories, they may dissociate, or may say they have forgotten about it. Cases such as these get stuck and often the trauma doesn’t get processed. We let ‘sleeping dogs lie’, with devastating consequences for future development. But how to help these children?

    This workshop would benefit all mental health clinicians
