Event description

Description

For the third year in a row, join schools and agencies across the state to improve your learning in supporting high-risk students at the Colorado Alternative Education Association (CAEA) Conference. This conference is designed for teachers, school admin, counselors, support staff, and relevant agencies and will feature sessions on topics such as dropout prevention, rigor and relevance, trauma-informed practice, accountability, systems and structures, and post-secondary readiness. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with each other and learn from consultants and experts in the field.


Highlights

Motivational Interviewing: A great opportunity for conference attendees! We will be offering a morning workshop on Motivational Interviewing (MI), a communication style that will help you facilitate productive conversations about change, share information effectively, and minimize resistance and defensiveness. MI is quickly gaining momentum in the AEC world. Watch a brief preview of a strategy for sharing information here: video.

Karen Alonge, a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, will be facilitating this 2.5 hr introductory workshop. Don't miss out on this chance to gain valuable communication skills and polish the ones you already have! You must pre-register for the MI workshop.

Cost: This year we are charging $25 plus a small fee processing fee to cover the cost of food and key speakers.

Conference Proposals: If you are interested in presenting, please submit your session proposal
