There are a few more days to submit your proposal for a 90-minute workshop to be presented at our 2nd Annual Philadelphia Trauma Training Conference-
Preventing Childhood Trauma and its Impact across the Lifespan: An Interprofessional Agenda for Providers, Advocates, Policy Makers, and Community Members
The submission deadline is March 1st. If your proposal is accepted you will be granted free admission to the three-day conference. First launched in 2017, the Philadelphia Trauma Training Conference was hugely successful because of expert presenters and keynotes, cross-sector collaborative exercises, and an incredibly engaged interprofessional audience of nearly 400 clinicians, health professionals, educators, child welfare providers, first responders and others invested in the health of children and families. Our team is hard at work planning another great event, and we hope to welcome you as a presenter and/or participant. The conference will be held July 23-25, 2018 (post-conference workshops July 26th) at Thomas Jefferson University, East Falls Campus in Philadelphia, PA.
The conference planning committee is requesting submissions for 90-minute workshop sessions. Proposals should focus on one of the primary aims of the conference (1) Preventing incidences of childhood trauma; (2) Mitigating the impacts of trauma exposure across the lifespan; and (3) Preventing vicarious trauma and supporting a stable, healthy workforce. 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.
