2014 keynote speakers
Ross Cheit, JD, PhD
Ross is professor of Political Science and Public Policy at Brown University. His soon-to-be-released book, The Witch-Hunt Narrative: Politics, Psychology, and the Sexual Abuse of Children, challenges the view that a series of high-profile cases in the 1980s and early 1990s were hoaxes. Cheit shows how a narrative based on empirically thin evidence became a theory with real social force, and how that theory stood at odds with the reality of child sexual abuse.
Diane Poole Heller, PhD

She is a trainer, presenter, and speaker offering workshops, teleseminars, and educational materials on trauma, attachment models and their dynamics in childhood and adult relationships, as well as many other topics.
