Event description

Description

The Ending Violence Association of BC is pleased to invite you to our 2019 Annual Training Forum “Supporting Survivors Across the Years” that will bring together anti-violence workers from across BC along with colleagues from justice, policing, health, government and academia.

This year’s training forum looks at the many ways people may experience gender-based violence and abuse at any time of life, from childhood onward to adulthood and advanced age. People may suffer harm at any age from those in positions of profound trust to complete strangers. Perpetrators can be anyone – family members or guardians, friends, acquaintances, co-workers, coaches, intimate partners, caregivers, professionals or someone utterly unknown. Service providers respond to and support the needs of survivors of all ages on a daily basis.

We hope you will find time in your very busy schedules to attend and connect with anti-violence colleagues and experts in the field. We look forward to seeing you there!
