14 million children are exposed to DV each year. The majority receive no therapeutic intervention. We as a society and each of us individually need to be proactive towards eradicating what has become an international pandemic - a societal disease for which there is a cure.

Alicen J McGowan is the ultimate pedagogue. From therapist, first-responder, thought leader, parent and counselor, she has studied and learned from everyone she meets. As a national speaker in the field of Domestic Violence and Children of DV, Dr Alicen has trained hundreds in the fields of Social Work, Law Enforcement, Psychology, Law/Mediation and Education. She is an outstanding speaker and storyteller.
