Join them on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM for Building and Enhancing Relationships Through Family and Youth Engagement.

The training will be presented by Corey B. Best, Technical Assistance Consultant with the Georgetown University Adaptive Leadership Team.

This workshop was created to help communities continue their journey of promoting better outcomes for families involved in the system of care by recognizing the value of the family voice and developing strategies and tools necessary to improve collaboration and family engagement initiatives.

Best will guide the audience through the realities, biases and perceptions that often hinder one's ability to build lasting relationships with consumer families and help participants, through multiple hands-on activities, discover the benefits of social equality, protective factors and dialogue.

Participants may receive five-and-a-half (5.5) hours of continuing education credit. Remember, you can report your hours online quickly and easily.

The training is free. You can register online and submit questions to the event contact below.
