The 26th National Symposium on Child Abuse is a multi-disciplinary training conference offering numerous networking opportunities and more than 130 workshops.
Symposium begins Monday evening, March 22, 2010 at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center. This is a relaxing evening, a time to receive registration materials and mingle with staff and faculty. An informal dinner is provided, and guests are welcome to tour the museum and view an IMAX movie.
Workshop sessions begin on Tuesday, March 23 at 8:30 am, and conclude at noon on Thursday, March 25. Each of the 10 workshop sessions features at least 13 different workshops. Workshop tracks are specifically designed for Administration, Child Protective Services, Interviewing, Law Enforcement, Legal, Medical, Mental Health/Treatment, Prevention, Victim Advocate, and Wellness. Many workshops are of interest to anyone working in the child maltreatment arena. You do not have to sign up in advance for workshops, and are free to choose the workshops you would like to attend. Cross-training is encouraged.
In addition to the state-of-the-art workshops, Symposium provides daily continental breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, a band party on Wednesday evening, a special Symposium tote bag, and transportation to all Symposium venues from the Symposium hotels. Airport transportation is provided on Thursday from the Von Braun Center.
