Just received confirmation that I will be speaking at the 20th International Conference organized by IVAT (Institute on Violence Abuse and Trauma) in San Diego during the last week of August. I am excited about this opportunity to speak on the topic of “prevention of child sexual abuse” because this is a well-known international conference, and also because I will be teaming with Dr. Pamela Pine, who is the Founder and CEO of the organization called Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. I am looking forward to this opportunity.

The following is from the IVAT website:

“The Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma (IVAT) strives to be a comprehensive resource, training and research center dealing with all aspects of violence, abuse and trauma.  IVAT interfaces with Alliant International University’s academic schools and centers, which provide resource support and educational training. Through a focus on collaborations with various partnering organizations, IVAT desires to bridge gaps and help improve current systems of care on a local, national, and global level. IVAT’S mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals on local, national and international levels by sharing and disseminating vital information, improving collaborations and networking, conducting research and trainings, assisting with direct professional services, program evaluation, and consulting to promote violence-free living.”

For more information on IVAT please feel free to check out their website at:

At that same IVAT conference in August I will also have another session where I will be speaking about “impact of bullying on mental health” based on my first book.
