PCPC Conference 2012 Message

“Family Violence:  Strategies for Healthy Living and Healthy Relationships”

On May 8th, the Provincial Caring Partnerships Committee hosted our 6th conference, “Family Violence:  Strategies for Healthy Living and Healthy Relationships”.  Our theme for this conference focused on the importance of indentifying strategies that help to foster healthy relationships and outcomes for the abuser and the victim – as well as finding ways to nurture ourselves.  Our keynote speaker, Dr. Walter DeKeseredy spoke of “New Ways to Thinking About Violence Against Women in Canada” and gave all attending a great deal to consider during the day.  In attendance, were close to 100 participants from government, Police/RCMP, non-profit, community and provincial organizations including front-line workers.  Participants were given the opportunity to hear a wide variety of speakers and topics, share information, network and learn how they can sustain themselves in the work they do. 

The Provincial Caring Partnership Committee is currently completing the final report for the conference which will include the power point presentations.  The report will be released soon on the PCPC
website: www.violencepreventionnb.org.  Thank you to all participants and the conference planning committee for their enthusiasm and active participation in this important conference!

5th Family Violence Networking Conference
 
Safe From the Storm: Enhancing the Lives of Youth Impacted by Family Violence - October 6, 2009
  
Conference 2009 a Success!
 
On October 6th the Provincial Caring Partnership Committee hosted a conference called “Safe from the Storm: Enhancing the lives of Youth Affected by Family Violence”. The theme of the conference was breaking down the barriers that limit our ability to assist young people whose lives are impacted by family violence.    The Child and Youth Advocate, Bernard Richard, presented an inspiring key note address.  In attendance were over 100 service providers, youth organizations, policy makers, and community members.  Participants appreciated the opportunity to share knowledge,  develop networks, and  address policy gaps so that our communities can better reach and assist this extremely vulnerable population.
 
The Provincial Caring Partnership Committee is currently completing the final report for the conference including summaries from each panelist’s presentation.  The report will be  released in early 2010 on the PCPC website: www.violencepreventionnb.org.  Thanks to all participants and the conference planning committee for their enthusiasm and active participation in this important conference!
