NCCASA 2017 Biennial Conference

From Premise to Practice: Applying a Comprehensive Trauma Lens

NCCASA is excited to announce our 2017 Biennial Conference! It will be held in Winston-Salem, NC, from Tuesday May 16th – Thursday May 18th.  Our theme, From Premise to Practice: Applying a Comprehensive Trauma Lens, encourages us to think of the many ways trauma informs what we do.

This conference gives us a chance to learn more about the theory and research behind trauma, and to find new ways to make our work more accessible to those who have experienced or witnessed trauma. Additionally, workshops at this conference will challenge us to use a trauma lens in examining historical trauma and collective trauma. For example, how does ongoing violence towards marginalized communities contribute to trauma? What does that mean for how we serve survivors of sexual violence?

This conference will provide tools for moving through the trauma we witness on a daily basis.

The 2017 Biennial Conference will be hosted at the Hawthorne Inn at 420 High Street. Please check this space for further lodging details in the future.
