Build your toolkit of coping skills and resilience-building resources that you can bring to your practice, your community initiatives, your organization and your life.

    The conference program is designed for researchers, practitioners, program facilitators, health care professionals, educators, social workers and other knowledge workers in community service, education, public health and crime prevention with an interest in strengths-based, trauma-informed community programs and research in the areas of mental health, trauma, youth, resilience, socio-emotional learning and equine-assisted learning.
