PRESENTER BIO:

Susan Holt, PsyD, LMFT, CCDVC, is a nationally recognized expert in intimate partner/domestic violence and developed and has directed the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s (formerly the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center) internationally recognized STOP Intimate Partner Abuse/Domestic Violence Program since 1996. She is also an adjunct facility member at Pacific Oaks College and Antioch University where she teaches about the subject of intimate partner and family violence.  Holt was the keynote speaker at legislative hearings in California on LGBT battering and frequently lectures and is interviewed by television, radio, and publications about the subject of domestic violence. In 2001, Holt worked with Senator Jackie Speier to develop the requirements for Senate Bill 564, a bill that requires domestic violence education for California’s mental health professionals. Holt also worked closely with Equality California to develop Assembly Bill 2051, a bill that supports the development of LGBT specific domestic violence services and is the first bill of its kind in the nation.  Holt is the former Board President of the Statewide California Coalition for Battered Women, has represented L.A.’s fourth council district on L.A.’s Domestic Violence Task Force, and served as the chairperson of the LGBT Issues Committee of the L.A. County Domestic Violence Council among other appointments and leadership positions. In 2010, she participated in the first-ever LGBT domestic violence roundtable at the White House.  She has been honored in Who’s Who in American Women and Who’s Who in America for her pioneering work in domestic violence and has been recognized by the California Legislature and former California governor, Gray Davis, for her significant contributions to the LGBT community.
