Pediatric Sexual Assault Conference

Pediatric Sexual Assault Conference

September 12-16, 2014
Lorenzo Cultural Center at Macomb Community College, Clinton Township

For service professionals who work with children, being able to recognize the signs of sexual assault or abuse – and knowing how to handle the situation – is critical. To help educate front-line professionals, such as healthcare providers, social workers, teachers, police officers, lawyers, counselors and more, Oakland University’s School of Nursing has partnered with Turning Point to offer a Pediatric Sexual Assault conference, which will be held at the Lorenzo Cultural Center at Macomb Community College Center Campus in Clinton Township.

The conference features a one-day session on Sept. 12, 2014 and a five-day workshop (Sept. 12-16) which focuses on understanding forensics, identifying resources for support, and learning practical skills and strategies to care for victims of pediatric sexual assault and abuse. Sponsors of the conference include Turning Point, Oakland University School of Nursing, Oakland University Macomb County and Wayne County SAFE.
