Event description

Description

Each of us experiences the world in a different way.

Our experiences inform our perceptions and assumptions creating a frame from which we view the world and each other. As professionals working to strengthen communities, our “frames” shape the way we view clients and the systems we design and use to help them. We see firsthand how frames may create misconceptions and barriers to success and wellness.

Join us at the 2019 FaCT Conference for a robust discussion that will challenge us to “reframe” our thinking about how and why we serve.

Breakout Sessions:

The Journey Home: Seeking Shelter in Orange County

As case managers, social workers, and professionals working with vulnerable members of our communities, we know how difficult finding a home can be. Whether finding an affordable apartment or seeking a place to stay just for the night, housing is a source of instability for too many of Orange County's families. Join us for a discussion on the current support systems.

Trauma: Yours, Mine, and Ours

Trauma-informed care is changing the way we practice, how we view ourselves, and most importantly, how we view our clients. In this breakout session we'll go beyond the buzz word and learn the ins and outs of what it means to practice trauma-informed care.

Head Above Water: Navigating the Mental Health Care System while Struggling with Illness

While the stigma around mental health still exists, more people are seeking support and services as we seek to heal and grow together. However, navigating the mental health system, especially while struggling with mental illness, is often frustrating. This breakout session examines the mental health system and where we can work to improve it.

Out of Place: Existing as a Foster Youth

Youth in foster care experience unique challenges throughout their lifetime. Join a previous foster youth and a children’s support service expert in a panel discussion aimed at exploring the foster youth experience and the unique challenges associated with it.

Divergence: Rethinking the Justice System

Entering the criminal justice system early in adulthood is a pivotal moment. Join a discussion aimed at rethinking the way our criminal justice system interacts with young adults and learn about a new program that is paving the way for future policy initiatives.

The Sacrifices of Service: The Unique Experiences of Military Members, Veterans, and Their Families

Between managing deployments and returning home, dealing with injury and loss, and parenting and maintaining relationships, members and veterans of our armed services and their families face unique challenges. This breakout session focuses on the current systems in place for military and veteran families, its gaps, and what is being done to address those gaps.
