The Conference will engage education and social services professionals in a conversation about trauma, social and emotional learning, and high risk behaviors. We expect 600 teachers, school and district administrators, counselors, social workers, and other professionals to attend.
Attendees will participate in two breakout sessions, hear from keynote speaker Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, and take part in advanced skill building workshops to gain hands-on skills to take back to the classroom. There will also be an exhibitor hall for participants to be able to network and gain resources from local organizations and partners.
Our goal is to provide a heartfelt, educational and stimulating day that will generate significant positive impact throughout the greater Houston region.
Breakout sessions will include:
Social and Emotional Learning
High Risk Behaviors
Advanced Skill Building topics include suicide screening in schools, using games for social emotional learning, mindfulness, the impact of therapy dogs, engaging traumatized children, healthy relationships and how learning about the whole child can impact growth.
