2020 Training Institutes: Register now for early bird savings!

November 15, 2019    |  

For more than 30 years, the Training Institutes, a biennial event, have been the premier convening of leaders in children’s services. 

 The 2020 Training Institutes, #WhatCouldBe: Bolder Systems & Brighter Futures for Children, Youth, Young Adults & Their Families, challenge us to build on existing delivery systems for children’s services with new ideas and approaches. Both keynote presentations and over 165 workshops include a forward-looking perspective to provide next steps in creating vibrant futures for youth with complex challenges and their families. 

Presenters and attendees are experts and leaders in the field of children’s services, including parents, youth, young adults, policymakers, clinicians, researchers, and evaluators from communities across the nation. The 2020 Training Institutes are an opportunity for leaders providing services and the communities they serve to share in the latest research, policy, and practice, and to learn practical strategies from each other. 

Innovative, in-depth workshops address data-driven policy, design and implementation, and well-researched approaches that are highly relevant to effective delivery systems for child/youth and family services including mental health, substance use, public health, physical health, juvenile justice, child welfare, education, early childhood, and transition age.
