Dear Friends and Colleagues,

NY ATSA and NYS Alliance are pleased to announce the annual call for papers for the 23rd Annual Joint Conference, Working Together: Unifying the approach to Sexual Abuse Prevention and Response to be held May 21 – 23 at the Holiday Inn Saratoga in Saratoga Springs, NY.

The NY ATSA/NYS Alliance Conference provides an opportunity for participants to examine creative collaborations, services involving shared leadership and resources, as well as prevention, supervision, and treatment programs that reflect emerging best practices. Attendees will have access to leaders in the field of sex offender treatment, supervision, assessment, management, prevention, and victim advocacy. They will benefit from this opportunity to share, learn, and strategize with others dedicated to the shared mission to address and eliminate sexual abuse in New York State.

We are seeking presenters to reflect our conference theme and encourage submissions from victim advocates, medical professionals, researchers, lawyers (prosecutors and defense counsel), law enforcement (local, state, and federal police agencies, corrections, parole, probation, etc.), CAC's, child protection agencies, and treatment providers. We encourage all individuals/groups working to reduce sexual violence to submit a proposal to ensure that your important efforts and innovative approaches can be shared across the state.  

Appropriate workshop topics include issues related to:

  • Adult, Youth, and Family Specific Interventions
