32nd Annual Together for Children Conference
April 9-11, 2019
Grand Geneva Resort, Lake Geneva

Prevent Child Abuse Wisconsin is seeking proposals for conference workshop sessions at the 32nd annual Together for Children Conference - the Greg and Mary Ann Renz Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect.  The conference will be held Wednesday, April 10, and Thursday, April 11, 2019, at Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, Lake Geneva. 
 
The conference is geared toward professionals, whose work involves some aspect of child abuse and neglect: including prevention, intervention, treatment, investigation and prosecution.  Together for Children puts an emphasis on intermediate and advanced content level workshops or emerging issues/topics.
 
Workshops should address hot topic issues and evidenced based practices and programs.  Presentations might include topics such as: prevention strategies, innovative intervention and treatment strategies, best practice and research initiatives, current legal issues in the area of child maltreatment, or other cutting edge topics.
 
Session Format and Length:
Sessions are either 90 minutes or 3 hours in length.  We encourage presenters to help conference participants apply ideas to the work they are doing in the field.  Presenters should use a variety of presentation formats including lecture with questions and answers, case studies, exercises, panel discussion (with no more than 3 panelists) or demonstration.  We request that all presenters plan a minimum of 10 minutes of discussion time at the end of their session to allow participants to ask questions and help participants apply the new knowledge to their work.
 
Reimbursement:
Up to TWO presenters will be able to attend the two-day conference (April 10 & 11) at no cost. Mileage, for the day of the presentation,  will be covered at the current state rate. 
 
Room Set Up:
The workshop rooms will be set up to accommodate participants in classroom style.  Microphones will be available if the room size and/or number of participants warrant the need for one.  Proposals submitted must accommodate a minimum of 30 people.
