2024 Child Abuse Summit

Conference Overview

Bivona Child Advocacy Center founded the Child Abuse Summit in 2009 in response to the growing need for opportunities to bring together the many disciplines who work with children to both learn alongside and to network with hundreds of professionals who work with survivors.

The Child Abuse Summit is a leading national multidisciplinary training conference for professionals who work with children.  The Summit attracts national experts and leaders in providing support and healing services to kids.

With a primary focus on providing the most up-to-date resources and trends in child abuse intervention and prevention, the Summit offers a wide-range of workshops and speakers appropriate for a variety of disciplines. Professionals encouraged to attend the Summit include social workers, law enforcement, legal professionals, judges, mental health and medical professionals, school personnel, daycare providers, child advocacy center staff, and the faith-based community.

Workshops are presented by national and international experts and include a wide-variety of topics. Summit attendees leave with a great deal of knowledge, as well as an understanding of the community resources available for children and families. The goal of The Child Abuse Summit is to educate members of our community — and beyond — about collaborative ways to prevent, treat, and investigate child abuse.

  • Social Workers
  • Law Enforcement
  • Prosecutors
  • Mental Health
  • Medical Professionals
  • School Personnel
  • Day Care Providers
  • Faith-based Community
  • and more.
