Breaking the Cycle of Violence: Investigating and Prosecuting Adult Violent Crimes (Domestic Violence and Prosecuting Sexual Assault)

November 2 - 6, 2020

San Diego, CA

NDAA has championed the cause of victims for decades.

Now we’ve combined our Annual National Multi-Disciplinary Conference on Domestic Violence
and Prosecuting Sexual Assaults into a single conference!

From backlash against victims to the lack of scientific evidence and eyewitnesses, these violent crimes are some of the most difficult to investigate, prosecute and litigate. Prosecutors are faced with endless obstacles such as; witness intimidation, witness and victim’s mental state and competency, defense allegations of a variety of mitigating factors including mental health issues, to traditional and unusual defenses. Join our experienced multi-disciplinary faculty as NDAA brings two amazing courses together for one great event – The Annual National Multi-Disciplinary Conference on Domestic Violence and Prosecuting Sexual Assaults. Our exceptional speakers will discuss issues essential to effective investigation, charging, prosecution, case management and sentencing in these complex cases. We will also address self-care for those working on these cases and Trauma-Informed Care and Practices. 

It is about Violence, Fear, Power, and Control – we must protect victims and witnesses.
