Cultivating RESILIENCE with Clients and Communities

Join practitioners, educators, students, and leaders for professional development on current human services issues, relevant resources, and best practices for serving our changing communities. Our theme “Resilience” will involve dynamic sessions on clinical issues across the lifespan, underserved groups, social justice issues, and community development with respect to cultivating resilience with clients and communities.

At this inter-disciplinary conference, you will find professional development sessions, roundtable discussions, panels, a resource and university fair, and visual displays of healing, activism, and resilience. This conference is valuable for practitioners, educators, faith and organizational leaders, and students in human services, social work, criminal justice, education, health care, and related fields.
