Every year, CAPC holds a conference focused on an area of child abuse prevention, presented by experts in the content area.

The conferences are open to to anyone who wants to get a more in-depth education on the topic, as well a tools to respond.

The conference is named after Cynthia Lockhart Mummery, LMFT, a long time clinical director at Tulare Youth Service Bureau and CAPC member who was an advocate for abused and neglected children for 18 years. Cynthia was the heart of the Tulare Youth Bureau until her death in 2002. A member of the Tulare County Child Abuse Prevention Council, she was instrumental  in bringing quality child sexual abuse treatment to Tulare County in the 1980s.

Join us on November 17th for a virtual event from 8:30 am PST to 2:00 pm PST

as we focus on sustaining systems, engaging communities, and transforming care.

 The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted feelings of safety and protection for many children and their families; led to elevated stress responses, potentially compounding the impact of other stressors; and added layers to experiences of trauma and adversity. 


Attendees will explore the complex events of the past year and a half and the needs of children, youth, and families associated with the pandemic.


During the conference we hope participants will:

  • Learn about how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted children, families, communities, and services for families.
  • Discover ways specific groups have been disproportionally impacted by the pandemic and how that has influenced long term recover for those communities.
  • Obtain recommendations and strategies to help support long-term recovery and healing.
  • Hear challenges families, communities, providers, agencies, and systems have encountered while trying to support recovery following COVID-19.
