Human Services Conference 2017

6th Annual Human Services Conference

Cultivating RESILIENCE with Clients and Communities

Friday, April 7, 2017, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Wojcik Conference Center, Harper College
1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine, Illinois 60067
Join practitioners, educators, students and leaders for professional development on current human services issues, relevant resources, and best practices for serving our changing communities. At this inter-disciplinary conference, you will find dynamic sessions led by recognized leaders in the field, round-table discussions, panels, visual displays of healing and resilience, and a resource and university fair.

Our theme, Resilience, will involve sessions on clinical issues across the lifespan, under-served groups, social justice issues, and community organization with respect to cultivating resilience with clients and communities. Serving our diverse communities involves adaptation and resilience as professionals, organizations, and communities. As practitioners and organizational leaders, we utilize new resources, expand our competencies and engage in inter-disciplinary partnerships. In order to cultivate resilience in our clients, we engage with multiple systems, intercultural factors, social justice advocacy, and community development issues.

This annual conference is valuable for practitioners, educators, faith and organizational leaders, and students in human services, social work, criminal justice, education, health care, and related fields.
