A detailed description of the SCVAN Conference.......
Over 400 people attend the annual Victims’ Rights Week Conference to receive cutting-edge training and to network with experts in the field. Professionals working in criminal justice and victim services, counselors and social workers, healthcare providers and educators gather together with survivors of crime to attend the three-day conference, sponsored by the S.C. Victim Assistance Network.
Over 40 workshops are presented by state and national experts, providing both basic and specialized, advanced training and information. Continuing education requirements are offered for Victim Service Providers, Counselors, Social Workers, Mental Health Professionals, Law Enforcement, Criminal Justice Professionals and Educators.
Crime victims and professional service providers attend to learn from each other as well as experts in the field, share their experiences and meet others who “walk in their shoes.” Victims pay homage to their lost loved ones during an intensely moving Unity Ceremony, and attend workshops devoted to helping them deal with grief, anger, and stress.
All attendees receive education on topics ranging from self-defense and navigating the criminal justice system to specific types of crime and statewide legislative initiatives.
