26th San Diego International Summit
Institute on Violence, Abuse & Trauma (IVAT)
Our Summit is a unique forum for professionals across all disciplines and philosophies to gather for in-depth exchange of current information on all facets of violence, abuse and trauma prevention, intervention and research. We are one of the very few events that include researchers, practitioners, advocates, survivors, and front-line workers from all disciplines to share information, discuss controversial issues, and engage in difficult dialogues. Evident in our uniquely comprehensive programming, the Summit focuses on linking research, practice, policy and advocacy to promote violence-free living for all. Opportunities for networking, continuing education, specialty certifications, and more make this an event you don’t want to miss.
Each year the Summit welcomes over 80 dedicated volunteers who help each element of the event come to life. Each volunteer has the opportunity to earn discounted registration. For each 5 hours of time volunteered, you are eligible for one day of waived registration. Please sign up here. For questions and submissions, contact Nivedita Chatterjee: NiveditaC@ivatcenters.org.
