Caring For Children in Crisis Conference

October 18, 2017

8: 00 am – 4:00 pm Olympic Club

524 Post Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 – near Union Square

SPECIAL RATE UNTIL AUGUST 25, $125. After August 25, $150.

Caring For Children was established in 1985 with the purpose of filling a serious gap in services to children in crisis. Although many human service agencies exist to address the basic survival needs of distressed children, none has sufficient resources to focus on the youngster’s emotional and psychological needs necessary to help them cope with the deprivation and trauma of their daily lives.

Caring For Children reaches out to provide direct emotional support to youngsters living in difficult circumstances, offers technical support to front-line agencies, and educates the public to the importance of preparing psychologically healthy children for future generations.

Towards that end, Caring For Children, in conjunction with Sanville Institute and other educational institutions, is offering a one-day special conference on Caring For Children in Crisis, featuring nationally renowned trauma expert Dr. James Garbarino speaking on “Traumatized Children at Home and Abroad: How to Recognize and Treat Them.”

Designed for educators, teachers, nurses, caregivers, therapists, counselors, daycare and homeless shelter personnel, this conference will educate caregivers as to the symptoms and needs of a traumatized child.

Questions and answers, as well as two subsequent panels, will follow the talk. The panels will be “Treating Traumatized Children at Home,” addressing needs of homeless, abused, and foster children, and “Treating Traumatized Children Abroad,” which will look at the needs of refugee children.

Dr. James Garbarino is an emeritus professor of Psychology at Cornell University. He now heads the Department of Humanistic Psychology and The Center for Human Rights for Children at Loyola University. For more than forty years, Dr. Garbarino has been the voice of abused and traumatized children. He has written over 19 books, is the recipient of numerous awards, and has served as a consultant and advisor to The National Institute of Mental Health, the AMA, and the FBI.

Co-Sponsored by The SANVILLE INSTITUTE and CHILD WELFARE LEAGUE OF AMERICA

FIVE CEUs AVAILABLE, $15 PAID AT END OF CONFERENCE.
