2019 International Conference on Innovations in Family Engagement
The Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect will hold its 2019 annual international conference in San Diego.
This conference brings together committed innovators to re-envision how child welfare and other systems can meaningfully engage families in planning and decision making. Participants include professionals who work in the areas of child welfare, youth justice, substance abuse and mental health, such as researchers, educators, legal/court personnel.
Attendees will network with other leaders, share innovative practices and policies, create a link between research and practice, understand implementation successes and challenges, explore voice and participation of children/youth, and dialogue about system change with a special focus on power differentials, marginalized groups, disparities and disproportionality.
This conference is approved for 16 CFLE hours of continuing education.
