Child Abuse Prevention Symposium

On September 18, the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance (PFSA) is holding a PA Child Abuse Prevention Symposium at the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel as part of their 40th Anniversary Celebration, and would love for you to join the celebration!

This day-long event is for professionals and volunteers who work with children and will feature three nationally acclaimed speakers who are experts in child abuse prevention:

  • Liz Murray, author of her memoir, Breaking Night, will start the day by sharing her inspiring story as the keynote speaker. She will also conduct breakout sessions throughout the day on the topic of responsive relationships.
  • Victor Vieth, Director of Education and Research at Zero Abuse Project, will conduct breakout sessions on the topics of faith and how organizations can keep children safe.
  • Jane Straub, Victim Assistance Specialist for the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center, will conduct breakout sessions on the topics of vicarious trauma and effects of sexual harm.

All attendees will receive a copy of Liz Murray’s memoir and lunch will be provided. This symposium is approved for 4 CEUs (for social workers, marriage & family therapists, and professional counselors) and 4 CLEs (for attorneys). Cost is $150 per registrant.
