Pre-registration is required for all sessions. Indicate on the registration form the workshops you wish to attend in order of preference. We will attempt to accommodate everyone's first choice, but given space limitations, we may not be able to do so. Workshop registration will be on a first come/first serve basis. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not provide second and third choice workshops and we are unable to place you in your first choice, conference organizers will place you in an open workshop of their choosing.
When registering online you will automatically receive a confirmation from the online registration system. Those who register via regular mail by check and who provide an email address will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your registration two weeks prior to the start of the conference. Workshop assignments will be given at the conference when you check in.

The Joint Conference is offering three different tracks for students or professionals new to this work. We hope it will help you choose introductory workshops that give an overview of a particular approach to this work. You can choose just one workshop or sign up for the entire series of five workshops in any track.
The three introductory tracks and their sponsors are:
|MASOC Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on adolescents or children who have sexually abused.
|MATSA Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on adults who perpetrate sexual violence.
|Survivor Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on bringing a victim centered approach to this work.
Advanced: Assumes a significant background in sex abuser-specific assessment and treatment, but does not assume knowledge
about the specific workshop content.
Intermediate: Assumes basic sex abuser-specific background, but does not assume any knowledge about the specific workshop content.
Introductory: Does not assume any knowledge of sex abuser-specific assessment or treatment.
All Levels: The workshop could be valuable to any level of experience in this field.
Adult, Adolescent (Adol), Latency (Lat), and All Ages refer to the clientele that the workshop is geared towards.
