CARE Network Annual Provider Training 2024

Keystone, CO US
May 7, 2024
The deadline to register for this event is April 4, 2024. 

The goals of this training are to increase local capacity for behavioral health and medical expertise in recognizing, assessing, and responding to childhood risk for maltreatment and trauma. By training and supporting designated providers at this conference, they will be able to go back to their communities with improved practice. Best practice standards will be addressed throughout the training to improve both access and quality of care for patients.

At the conference providers will have the opportunity to learn referral process and system-based protocols for working with other family-serving agencies, such as social services. These core skills and functions will be reiterated for returning providers. 

For returning providers, training will also take a deeper dive into more advanced assessment skills for childhood sexual behaviors, parental conflict, complex cultural and psychosocial dynamics, and cross-system collaboration.  Participants will have the opportunity to practice assessment and communication skill through role play and case study.
