This two day conference brings together over 350 professionals and organizations in Central Texas that work with children and adults; including mental health clinicians, physicians, school personnel, medical/nursing professionals, law enforcement, juvenile justice professionals, and occupational/physical/speech therapists. The conference will provide expert guidance and education on the effects of trauma, as well as evidence-based practices in recognizing and treating trauma.

Early bird registration is $275 and ends 12/31/14. Registration fee after 1/1/15 is $325. Cost of registration includes breakfast and lunch. Tickets are non-refundable. Currently, CEUs have been confirmed for social workers, psychologists, LPC's, and LMFT's. CEUs are pending for nurses, OT/PT/ST, LCDC, teachers, attorneys, and other medical professionals.
