Description

Join us for the 9th Annual UCF Counseling Conference January 20-21, 2017

Leaning into Loss: Developing Strategies for Hope and Thriving

The goal of the Annual UCF Counseling Conference is to provide a quality professional development opportunity for counselors and counselors-in-training by facilitating relevant presentations of issues in the field of counseling.

This two-day event offers diverse topics in counseling and other disciplines, drawing attendees from around the country. Helping professionals from all specializations are encouraged to attend, including: mental health counselors, school counselors, addictions counselors, career counselors, social workers, exceptional education professionals, as well as marriage and family therapists. Additional specializations are welcome. Undergraduate and graduate students are also invited to attend. Volunteer opportunities are limited; volunteers will be notified upon selection.

Keynote: Dr. Jeremy Richman

Dr. Richman has extensive research experience that spans the range from neuroscience and neuropsychopharmacology, to cardiovascular biology, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, immunology, and inflammation. He has worked in the research and drug discovery arena for over two decades and is passionate about helping people live happier and healthier lives. Dr. Richman is dedicated to reaching out and educating youth and believes our future relies on their imaginations. This manifests in his work through teaching adolescents and children martial arts, biology, neuroscience and rock climbing. Most importantly, he believes it is critical to empower youth to advocate for themselves and their peers when it comes to brain health and brain illnesses. Toward this end, Dr. Richman and his wife, Jennifer Hensel, started the Avielle Foundation, committed to preventing violence and building compassion through brain health research, community education, and engagement.
