OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorney General Scott Pruitt is hosting the annual Oklahoma Victim Assistance Academy at the University of Central Oklahoma.

The academy begins Sunday in Edmond and lasts until Friday.

The academy is an intensive course of study for victim advocates, service providers, law enforcement professionals and social service providers who work directly with crime victims in any capacity.

The academy aims to increase providers’ abilities to serve crime victims, encourages thinking on ways to help victims regain control of their lives and enhances multidisciplinary training.

This year’s attendees will participate in extensive training and hear firsthand from family members of victims and survivors.

The week also includes a mock trial where attendees learn about the effect trauma has upon victim testimony.
