HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma will hold its 14th Hawaii International Summit in Honolulu from March 27-30 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu to assist trauma and neglect case experts in assessing, preventing and treating those situations. “Preventing, Assessing and Treating Trauma Across the Lifespan” is the theme of the four-day seminar open to psychologists, counselors, therapists, social workers, doctors, nurses, attorneys and others who work with traumatized individuals.

International and local presenters will share prevention strategies and the latest research findings to help provide the tools needed to address abuse and neglect cases, as well as understand the long-term effects, if they go untreated.

This summit is approved to offer up to 28 hours of continuing education credits for event participants in their particular field.  Winners of the 3rd Annual Children’s Art contest promoting the development of healthy interpersonal relationships will also be announced at the event. The deadline for online event registration is March 19. For more information on the event and how to register, see the website at www.IVATCenters.org.

The summit is being held in conjunction with the Ho`omaluhia-Family Violence & Sexual Assault Institute, Hawaii Branch; Institute on Violence, Abuse & Trauma; Argosy University-Hawaii; Catholic Charities Hawai‘i, Child & Adolescent Mental Health Division-Hawaii; and the National Partnership to End Interpersonal Violence Against the Lifespan.
