ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
What is the purpose of the conference?
This conference provides an opportunity for learning, discourse and collaboration among practice professionals, faculty and students with leading sexual homicide experts. Sexual homicide is a matter of global concern that concerns us regionally to members of our global community who counsel families of homicide victims (homicide survivors), investigate and prosecute these crimes, work with these offenders in correctional facilities, and/or who assess sex offenders for their risk of violent recidivism.
Who should attend?
While on the surface this appears to be a topic relevant only to law enforcement, this devastating crime reaches far across disciplines -- law enforcement and corrections, law, psychology, psychiatry, nursing, medicine, social work, forensic science, sociology, anthropology, women’s studies, and others – thus becoming an area of interest and development for research, practice and teaching among our academic and practitioner colleagues.
What is the schedule?
The conference will be held on Monday November 7th and Tuesday November 8th. Monday will be a full day of session, and Tuesday will be somewhat abbreviated to allow speakers and participants to meet their travel schedules. The full schedule will be ready in May.
When is the registration deadline?
The registration deadline is Tuesday, November 1st, 2011.
