2023 Pre-Conference: How to Stop a Serial Killer: Finding Opportunities for Homicide Prevention

When: Sunday, May 21st, 2023 8:30am-4:30pm

Presented by RESPOND, a collaborative alliance applying forward-thinking approaches to create sustainable change.

Sexually sadistic serial killers regularly utilize asphyxiation to control, torture and kill women. Because they typically target strangers and pose a serious risk to the community, they are sensationalized and prioritized by the media. However, most crimes against women are committed by a person they know or trust. These are often presented as “isolated incidents” and treated with less urgency. Yet, serial offenders frequently have a similar history of violence and sexual abuse toward their partners and acquaintances. This unique, interactive course follows the escalation of a violent offender over time and gives every practitioner the opportunity to play a role in stopping a killer in their tracks!

If you receive funds from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), you may be eligible to use them to attend the Conference.
