The Office for Victims of Crime will sponsor a track on Working at the Intersections of Co-Occurring Trauma (Polyvictimization) focused on the impact of multiple types of trauma (polyvictimization) and the complex challenges of working with polyvictims. 

In all workshops, we will share our lessons learned on how your community can move forward toward greater collaboration, co-located services approaches, and effective high risk teams - that can save lives and produce better short and long-term outcomes for survivors and their children.
