The Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV) and the
Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) are pleased to announce
their collaborative prevention conference,
Partnering for Prevention: A TAASA and TCFV Summit.
We asked the Partnering for Prevention attendees what their ah-ha moment was during the conference.
Partnering for Prevention isn’t your typical conference. We pooled our expertise and resources to design a unique learning experience for prevention workers, community members, and program leadership based in current prevention practice and theory.
Prevention requires a community of practice: Participants will meet with others who share similar duties and interests to celebrate their successes, learn new skills, and discuss strategies for dealing with the real obstacles programs face when implementing prevention programming in their communities.
Prevention education takes time: The day-long workshop sessions are long enough for participants to delve into the training topics, dialogue with peers and presenters, and still have time to practice new skills.
Prevention work means getting at the root: The conference includes a Courageous Conversation, training to both encourage and challenge participants to look at how disparities and inequalities put our communities at risk for gender-based and other forms of violence.
Prevention is inspiring: Connection, rejuvenation, and wellness are themes woven throughout the conference with everything from a keynote presentation by Patricia Castillo of the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative to the use of art as a tool for education and transformation.Get ready to roll up your sleeves, join your peers to work arm-in-arm, and celebrate your statewide prevention efforts to end sexual and domestic violence.
