This conference was designed for parents, caregivers, educators, and mental health professionals who want to learn about the latest research, innovations, and techniques pertaining to children’s mental health and attachment-based practices.
The Institute’s vision is that parents and professionals will walk away from the conference with a toolbox of new ideas and strategies to help children reach their fullest potential. The three-day online event will take place April 22-24, 2022. You will learn from a variety of experts including Dr. Tina Payne Bryson, Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Dr Becky Kennedy and Dr. Jennifer Mullen, as well as 19 additional workshops covering a range of topics impacting today’s youth, including issues of emotional intelligence and resiliency to the more intense struggles related to trauma and low self-esteem.
Additionally, these courses qualify for continuing education hours, and a certificate of completion can be obtained.
