The 2018 Conference
Fifteen years ago a group of individuals representing several different disciplines had the idea to begin a conference in Tennessee that focused strictly on improving how child abuse allegations were investigated and handled. In 2003, the first Connecting for Children's Justice Conference was held with about 250 attendees. Since then the conference planning committee has grown and each year they identify training needs across the state and match expert presenters with those topics.
The need for training for child maltreatment professionals continues today. We, the Children's Advocacy Centers of Tennessee, remain committed to hosting a high-quality conference at an affordable cost because we know the benefits and we have witnessed the implementation of professional knowledge in the field.
The 2018 Conference is being crafted with our participants as the focus. We will offer over 80 workshops to meet your training needs. The CCJ Conference is unique because it is the largest training for responders to child maltreatment in the state.
