Trauma impacts us ALL! Some of us are survivors, family members, service providers, co-workers or supervisors of individuals who have been impacted by this silent storm. This conference will bring together a diverse group of people with a common denominator of providing a light of hope and healing through effective strategies and supports.
The goal of this conference is to build skills, knowledge and awareness in order to respond effectively and appropriately to various aspects of child, adolescent and adult trauma on introductory, intermediate and advanced levels.
The target audience include those directly or indirectly impacted by trauma, including Mental health and substance abuse professionals, Social Workers, Peer Support Specialists, Physicians and nurses, Marriage and Family Therapists, Juvenile justice personnel (e.g., administrators, probation officers, judges), Educators (e.g., teachers, administrators, counselors, health); Foster care parents and staff, group home providers, advocates, survivors and family members and homeless service providers.
