Professional Tracks!

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.
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.  For more information contact MASOC via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

MATSA Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on adults who perpetrate sexual violence.
The Massachusetts Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers, Inc. (MATSA) is a non-profit local chapter of the international parent organization, ATSA. ATSA and MATSA are dedicated to principles that foster research and information exchange, further professional education, and advance professional standards and practice in the field of sex offender evaluation and treatment. Both MATSA and ATSA are deeply committed to the prevention of sexual assault through effective management of sex offenders.  MATSA currently has over 90 members in Massachusetts and surrounding states.  Contact MATSA via the website at or by email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Survivor Sponsored Track:
Workshops that focus on bringing a victim centered approach to this work.

The survivor sponsored track provides an approach to working with victims and survivors of sexual violence developed by rape crisis centers and other victim advocacy organizations over the last 40 years. This track will be especially important for professionals working with adults, adolescents or children who have experienced sexual violence and have also perpetrated sexual harm.  The track is sponsored by one of the oldest rape crisis centers in Massachusetts:  Pathways for Change, Inc. serving the central Massachusetts region. Pathways for Change, Inc. provides services to victims and seeks to change social beliefs and institutional responses to sexual violence.
