About Us

"Advancing domestic violence treatment, increasing offender accountability and improving victim safety and recovery"

The UADVT was organized to fill the gap left by the dissolution of the Utah Domestic Violence Council’s Treatment Committee/Workgroup. The association carries on the tradition of holding an annual conference for DV treatment providers and their community partners. We also provide quarterly preservice training for therapists who are wish to begin offering DV Treatment services.

UADVT Meetings
UADVT meetings are on the 1st Friday of every month from 2pm to 3:30pm, sometimes with subcommittee meetings to follow. Topics for meetings may include annual conference planning, discussions on proposed or enacted changes to state or federal statutes, evidence-based treatments and evaluations, treatment planning, referral sources, upcoming training opportunities, and other relevant topics. The meetings are attended by various treatment providers, representatives from several government funders, referral sources, advocates, and others with an interest in treatment and interventions that promote positive change and an end to domestic violence in our communities.

All are welcome to come and discuss various topics related to domestic violence treatment and intervention in our state. The meeting will also meet the requirements for community coalition and engagement for those with a contract to provide DV services through the DHS.

The meetings are held online via Zoom. If you would like to attend, please email Derrik Tollefson (derrik.tollefson@usu.edu).
