The 3rd Annual Philadelphia Trauma Training Conference: Promoting Equitable Access to High Quality Services for Vulnerable Children and Families, will be held on Thomas Jefferson University's East Falls Philadelphia Campus July 29th-August 1st, 2019. This unique training conference will provide an intensive, collaborative, and engaging experience to providers, educators, and leaders across health, education, and social service disciplines, as well as to community members invested in promoting the health of their families, neighborhoods, and cities.
The conference planning committee is requesting submissions for 90-minute workshop sessions, as well as poster submissions.
Workshop proposals should focus on promoting equitable access to high quality services for vulnerable children and families through: (1) Community Engagement; (2) Clinical Application; and/or (3) Policy and Advocacy.
Sessions must be congruent with the conference theme and have implications for community-based trauma-focused work. The conference aims to enhance competencies in interprofessional practice. Sessions that have an interprofessional focus are strongly encouraged. Presenters will be asked to identify if their workshop proposal best fits programming for (1) providers seeking advanced trauma competencies and knowledge, (2) participants seeking foundational trauma training, or (3) community and family members.
Poster guidelines will be sent to accepted submitters upon acceptance.
We hope you will consider joining us for this inspiring and engaging event. Please feel free to pass this along to others who may be interested in attending and/or submitting proposals. We look forward to learning about your work!
