The morning begins with a Keynote address From Trauma to Resiliency: Building Stronger Families and Communities by Elizabeth Meeker, PsyD, Director of Training and Practice Transformation for Coordinated Care Services, Inc. Parents and caregivers then have a choice of breakout sessions- including a Q & A with Dr. Meeker and Parenting Toolbox: Behavioral Tips and Techniques for Crisis Situations with Kimberly Harrell, a Licensed Professional Counselor with 20 years of experience. Ms. Harrell will teach strategies for managing tough behaviors to help you to feel empowered in challenging situations.

Youth and younf adults are invited to participate in a workshop designed just for teens and young adults.
