January 8-10, 2020, Hotel Albuquerque, Old Town
Join us in exploring the theme: “Walking the Talk: Prevention, Support, and Radical Acceptance”
The 2020 annual conference theme looks forward to the implementation of recent changes in our child welfare, juvenile justice, and children’s legal systems, with an emphasis on putting the values of prevention, support, and radical acceptance into practice. While safety and risk remain important considerations, we are challenging our systems to address concerns by upholding the essential, effective, and innate connections that exist within families and the surrounding community.
With the start of a new decade, a new administration, and new national and state-wide initiatives, we have an opportunity to move innovative ideas towards improved outcomes for the children, youth and families we serve. What does it look like to shift our systems’ efforts from reactive to preventative? How can we leverage the strengths of our communities to provide the support that allows families to thrive? How can each one of us renew our commitment to break ineffective patterns of judgement and move towards the radical acceptance of others that restores hope and humanity in our communities?
