The NYSATSA/NYSAPSA Conference provides an opportunity for participants to examine services involving shared leadership and resources, as well as programs and practices that influence emerging best practices. The Conference enables attendees to interact and network with leaders in the field of sex offender treatment, supervision, assessment, management, prevention, and victim advocacy. We are certain that all will benefit from this opportunity to share, learn, and strategize with others dedicated to the shared mission to address and eliminate sexual abuse in New York State.
