Crime elevates the risk for long-term, often traumatizing mental and physical health effects in victims, offenders, and their children, partners and families.

This workshop, co-sponsored by the Siena College Department of Social Work and Albany Health Management Associates, Inc. will train professionals who work with crime victims, offenders, law enforcement, and their children, partners and families, who are seeking recovery from trauma in the aftermath of violence. It is presented in an emotionally engaging manner that offers a skill building, inspirational experience beneficial to the participant’s life and practice.

This program has been delivered to organizations including the American Association of Criminal Justice Professionals, the Melanie Ilene Rieger Memorial Conference, the Association for Community Living of N.Y. State and the Association of College Unions International.


About the Speakers
