This conference is for those interested in cross-professional collaboration to address community issues at their root:

At this conference, you will learn:

  • How to develop positive relationships with youth that allow them to thrive
  • Trauma-informed approaches to improve child, family and community well-being by addressing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)
  • Constructive actions that reverse the effects of childhood trauma on children and the adults they become.

Join us to explore the research and learn new ideas for creating intentional relationships that promote healing, enhance resilience, and help youth, families and communities thrive.
