Creating a Healthy and Inclusive Community for Everyone.
This year's conference will focus on creating a healthy and inclusive community for everyone. We are excited to welcome Dr. Michelle Melton who will open the conference by discussing safe spaces and reclaiming community for healing and thriving. Our workshops will dive into topics such as diversity and inclusion, paternal mental health, veterans trauma, LBGTQ+ issues, law enforcement, and supporting self-care through nature. Carla Du Pree will conclude the conference with tools for how to bring our whole self to the conversation. We hope participants will leave the conference with new tools and ideas to support a healthy and inclusive community.
As always we are pleased to offer 6 Social Work CEs for full conference attendance.
