Understanding the adverse childhood experience study, historical, and generational trauma is a window into how and why people and our campus families are affected. Through this introduction of these topics of trauma they will help educate us, giving us a greater understanding and insight into the diverse populations. Like a domino effect, this knowledge will empower us to show more empathy and compassion helping us to be better equipped to communicate.

Justin Boardman
Keynote Speaker
Retired Detective Justin Boardman was in Law Enforcement for 15 years, all with the West Valley City Police Department, Utah. Justin co-authored (along with Donna Kelly, Esq.) a Trauma Informed Victim Interview protocol for adult victims of sexual assault. This new protocol uses the Neurobiology of Trauma to gain additional information to be used in the investigation. This process has been studied and has shown to increase prosecutions along with procedure changes.

Justin now presents and consults Nationally and Internationally on a variety of subjects. Recently Justin left active police work to focus on culture change within the community he loves. Justin has been awarded the Utah Visionary Voice Award presented by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and the 2017 Public Policy Award by the Utah Council on Victims of Crime.
