CONFERENCE TESTIMONIALS


   

Excellent conference. Well organized and a great diversity of speakers. Thank you.

      My first time attending. Great conference. On point with today’s rural crime. Thanks

The presenters were simply outstanding and I loved the format of the sessions (different angles) and the fact that industry partners and business were included. Crime prevention is complex and you nailed the fact that there are so many stakeholders.

Varied conference topics around a central theme. Speakers who are open to more discussions during and after the conference.

I found it all valuable, something for everybody (urban-rural)….. Great job. Thanks for all your hard work.

The presentations about technology – they fit in all areas, especially rural.

Hearing about success stories in other communities. Good ideas for people from the outside!

ANNA BRASSARD

WORKSHOP 2: INTRODUCTION TO SAFEGROWTH® AND LIVABILITY ACADEMY

Monday, May 9 at 8:00am

 ANNA BRASSARD BIO

Anna Brassard is a full-member of the Canadian Institute of Planners and Registered Professional Planner with the Alberta Professional Planning Institute. She has nearly two decades experience in the fields of strategic planning, SafeGrowth®, crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED), facilitation, facility planning, master planning and comprehensive community planning with First Nation communities. She spent 5 years as an Adjunct Assistant professor with the Faculty of Environmental Design, University of Calgary supervising Master's level theses and teaching graduate level students courses in facilitation and building safe communities. This included developing a new joint initiative – "People and Place" – between the faculties of Social Work and Environmental Design. She has conducted workshops across North America on SafeGrowth® to police, design professionals and community members. ​Anna is based in Calgary, Alberta.

WORKSHOP ABSTRACT

Participants will receive an introduction to SafeGrowth® and Livability Academy through hands on exercises, discussion of data collection methods, and case studies. SafeGrowth is a philosophy built on the belief that healthy and functioning small neighborhoods provide the most healthy, and safest way to build cities in the 21st Century, based on the premise that crime is best tackled within small neighborhoods by harnessing the creative energy of neighborhood groups.  Unlike programs like CPTED, which are typically run by crime prevention practitioners or the police, SafeGrowth methods seeks to embed skills like CPTED within the community by working directly with neighborhood associations, groups, and local change agents. The approach ensures higher levels of neighborhood social cohesion which in turn helps sustain community-building and crime prevention strategies in the long-term.  The goal of Livability Academy is to ensure the sustainability and ongoing pool of neighborhood leaders, sometimes called Community Livability Academies, through a curriculum of presentations and workshops.  Topics range from civic affairs, community leadership training, community organizing, project management, CPTED and SafeGrowth methodology, among others.

 CHRISTIANE SADELER BIO

Christiane trained as a Community Psychologist and was the 2018 recipient of the American Psychological Association's (APA) Society for Community and Practice (SCRA) Award for Distinguished Contribution to Practice in Community Psychology. She led the Waterloo Region Crime Prevention Council for over 25 years. Specializing in Crime Prevention through Social and Community Development, she is very skilled at helping communities have difficult conversations in order to move forward. Her processes and techniques are applicable to many social issues and focus on developing consensus, valuing diversity and building understanding. Christiane is passionate about prevention and believes that micro changes to the status quo don't make for better solutions to complex social issues.

WORKSHOP ABSTRACT

We know from research and experience that the issues of crime prevention and community safety are too complex for any one system alone to solve. Multi-disciplinary collaboratives have, therefore, become the industry standard in many municipalities across the country and beyond. We also know from research that collaborative decision making when it comes to complex social issues is far superior to decisions made by individuals and/or any homogenous group. But neither collaboration nor collaborative decision making are easy and without its challenges. In this interactive workshop participants will discover how to build and lead value-based collaboration, and how to make effective collaborative decisions for crime prevention and community safety. The workshop will include exercises, discussions of research, knowledge shared by crime prevention practitioners from across the country and the US by way of case studies, as well as tools for enhancing your collaboration building and collaborative decision-making game. Participants will learn to understand their own decision-making styles and how it interfaces with the styles of others. We will discuss barriers to effective collaboration and sound collective decision making and how to safeguard against them. With decision making for the public good comes a great responsibility, and the more we can ensure that decisions are driven by data and sound values the more this responsibility will feel like an opportunity rather than a burden. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves, share your decision-making dilemmas, and enter the rich world of collaborative interventions for community safety.
