NARSOL’s ED Brenda Jones and Cindy Prizio, the ED of our Connecticut affiliate group CT for One Standard of Justice, are in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, for the Association for Treatment of Sexual Offenders’ 37th research and treatment conference. The conference kicked off  October 17th and will continue through Saturday, the 20th.

The theme of the conference is “Better Together” and offers “symposia, workshop presentations, poster sessions, discussion groups, and advanced clinics relating to issues in both victim and perpetrator research and treatment.”

Brenda writes from there:

Things have been going very well at the ATSA conference. Today is a “preconference” day with long sessions for dedicated persons, but during each break we have been encountering highly interested and supportive persons, especially from the treatment community (therapists and social workers for instance). People are dropping their business cards in the bowl for a chance to attend our conference free, responding to our mini-survey asking how can we help them, and asking us, “How can we get involved?”
