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.

Hosted by the Tulare County Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC)

Join us on November 9th for an in-person event from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm PST 

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted numerous aspects of family life. Thus, there is an opportunity for individuals, organizations and community leaders who have a desire to help families, to grow and better serve families based on lessons that we have learned during the pandemic.

While it is important for individuals working with families to be informed by prior research and theory, many of the changes and stressors that families have faced during the pandemic are unprecedented. The settings that we conceptualized as separate before the pandemic (such as home, parents’ workplaces, school, and doctor’s visits) did not retain the same separation during the pandemic with the rise of virtual education, virtual workplaces, telemedicine, and quarantine guidelines.

This year’s CLM Conference is an acknowledgement of the increased blending between the systems that is necessary when understanding the context that children live in and its impact on children’s development as we recover from 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.

 

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
