The Canadian Maltese Charitable Service Trust is hosting the first Domestic Violence Symposium in Toronto at The Metro Toronto Convention Centre, June 6 & 7, 2014. Tickets are now available here. This is an event you can not afford to miss. We will have the finest academics enlighten us on what DV is, how to effectively deal with Domestic Violence (DV) issues from the perspective of an abuser, a victim and how to effectively manage authorities if you are caught in a violent domestic scenario.
Our Keynote speakers are Professor Martin S. Fiebert and Erin Pizzey. Together they possess over 100 years of DV expertise bringing to our audience important facts about Domestic Violence and the effect it has on our families and our communities.
In addition to our Keynote speakers, we have a number of other fantastic presenters. Professor Miles Groth, Vernon Beck, Senator Anne Cools and Walter Fox are confirmed, while we await confirmation by a representative from Yellow Brick House, a prominent woman’s Shelter in Aurora, Ontario. We will also be presenting material provided by Dr. Paul S. Links, a leading expert on matters concerning the high suicide rate of males.
This conference is designed for professionals and families.
On Friday, the Toronto DV Symposium will focus on presenting to, Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Police Officers, Educators, Social Workers, Lawyers, Judges, LSUC (Law Society of Upper Canada), Members of Parliament, Members of Provincial Parliament, Children’s Aid Society Workers and those who provide support to DV victims.
On Saturday, the Toronto DV Symposium will cater to the family. Men, women, husbands, wives and children. Our presenters will bring light to what Domestic Violence (also known as Intimate Partner Violence or IPV) is, how it affects all of us and what we can do to alleviate and mitigate the damage DV can cause.
Domestic Violence is a family matter, that affects men, women and most significantly, our children. The myth that DV is caused by men against women is slowly being dissolved as a fallacious innuendo that only men are responsible for DV. Professor Fiebert will provide data that clearly shows men and women roughly equally initiate DV in intimate relationships.
Every one of our presenters will touch on a significant area of DV as it affects all of society.
