NEW Professional Tracks!

MASOC Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on adolescents or children who have sexually abused.
MASOC is a coalition of nearly 1000 professionals committed to preventing sexual abuse through early intervention in the lives of children and adolescents who have sexually abused. It is MASOC’s belief that through appropriate interventions we can protect the community, prevent future incidents of sexual abuse, and offer children and teens the best opportunity to live abuse-free lives. MASOC believes that professionals trained in the most current age-appropriate research and best practices must administer these interventions. Since its founding in 1986, MASOC has grown to nearly 1000 professional members who care deeply about children and teens, and keeping our communities safe for everyone.
