Be a part of a spectacular learning opportunity for social workers and other helping professionals in our region! This year's theme centers on the power of creativity - how is it that we not only think outside the box, but redefine the box into new shapes, purposes, and applications. Mix and match sessions that provide you with the right opportunities to expand your skills, knowledge, and expertise. 

Attendees have the opportunity to engage in one of our three-hour pre-conference sessions, focused on either diagnosis or ethics, as well as the main conference day.  We've expanded our CEU offerings this year, so you can earn even more hours, and we are excited by the social event lined up for Thursday evening, as well.  Mingle with your colleagues, meet our keynote, and have some fun with your own creative, hands-on activities with us!
