UNH will welcome hundreds of leading researchers from around the world to discuss their groundbreaking research at the annual International Family Violence and Child Victimization Research Conference on, July 11 - July 13, 2010, at the Sheraton Harborside Hotel and Conference Center in Portsmouth.
The conference is sponsored by the UNH Family Research Laboratory (FRL) and the Crimes against Children Research Center (CCRC), with this year’s conference co-sponsored by the Institute on Violence, Abuse, and Trauma (IVAT, San Diego, California. In the tradition of conferences dating back to 1981, this conference will provide ample opportunities for hundreds of researchers and scientist/practitioners to meet and discuss a broad range of topics, including child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, sexual assault, as well as parenting and prevention of family violence.  
“Every year, many excellent conferences on child victimization and family violence take place around the country, and in several different regions of the world.  Our conference differs because of its research focus.  There is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners from many disciplines to come together for the purpose of sharing knowledge on family violence,” says Glenda Kaufman Kantor, conference chair and Research Association Professor of Sociology at the FRL and CCRC.
New to the conference series this year are pre-conference workshops on “The VIGOR: A New Risk Management Tool for Victims of Battering” and “Structural Equation Modeling with AMOS for Non-Statisticians: Basic Concepts and Applications.” Also a keynote address by Victoria Banyard titled “Preventing violence: The bystander’s role.”
U.S. Department of Justice, Deputy Associate Attorney General Karol Mason will be addressing the conference participants on Monday, July 12, 2010, during the lunch hour.
At previous conferences, participants have included professionals and graduate students from psychology, sociology, psychiatry, social work, nursing, medicine, women’s studies, law, criminology, criminal justice, anthropology, public health, and child development.  Participation in the conference is open to all, requiring pre-registration through the FRL.
