2016 Annual Conference Announcement and Call for Presenters

The UADVT was organized to fill the gap left by the dissolution of the Utah Domestic Violence Council’s Treatment Committee/Workgroup. With this second annual conference, the association carries on the tradition of holding an annual conference for DV treatment providers and their partners.

The conference will focus primarily on preventing incidents of domestic violence for adult and youth victims. Presentations will focus on:

  • Approaches that enhance treatment effectiveness;
  • Treatments that have been proven as effective in other modalities, tying it into DV treatment;
  • Helping treatment providers translate theory into practice;
  • Topics or themes which address domestic violent treatment;
  • Compare and contrast various domestic violence treatment methods; particularly focusing on effectiveness;
  • Demonstrating treatment methods that have been found to be effective (i.e., backed up by research);
  • The latest research on domestic violence treatment methods and their effectiveness

Opportunity for Sponsorship of the Conference:

UADVT invites sponsors for the conference. Please contact Martha Burkett-Fallis, LCSW,


Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Utah Association for Domestic Violence Treatment Conference. UADVT is a cooperative association focused on promoting and providing evidenced based treatment options for those affected by Domestic Violence in the state of Utah. Because of support from people like you, we have been able to attract speakers whose work has influenced the way we work with families from the front lines of the police department, to the victim advocates at the shelter, to the treatment professionals who help heal the family. Your donation makes a difference.

Our conference has been growing every year. This year we hope to have over two hundred treatment providers in attendance from all over the state. In exchange for your donation, we will advertise your organization in our conference program and on our website.

A donation of as little as $175 dollars could provide a scholarship to a participant who needs the vital training to bring new treatments to an underserved population in rural Utah. A donation of $700 dollars could bring in a panel of experts to discuss innovations in their field. $800 would provide a snack break in your honor. $1600 dollars would provide a plated lunch to all conference participates. A donation of $2500 would offset the cost of one of our world renowned speakers.

Thank you for considering sponsorship of the UADVT Conference. We look forward to your donation.

Sincerely yours,
Martha Burkett-Fallis, LCSW, Conference Chairwoman

"The annual conference is an opportunity to connect with other treatment providers and researchers. It is an opportunity to learn from and strengthen one another and to be reminded of the great responsibility we share to hold offenders accountable and help them change their abusive behaviors and attitudes."
~ Derrik Tollefson, PhD, UADVT President
