    • Tips for Talking and What to Say to Prevent Drug and Alcohol Abuse
    • Conversations are one of the most powerful tools parents can use to connect with and protect their kids. But when tackling some of life’s tougher topics, especially those about drugs and alcohol, just figuring out what to say can be a challenge. In addition to talking with your child about the dangers of street drugs and alcohol, it’s essential that you also address the abuse of prescription (Rx) drugs and over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine. This panel discussion will help you navigate how to discuss drug and alcohol abuse with children of all ages.

  • LAUNCH Flagstaff
    • Building Resiliency in Children and Families through a Community-Wide Culture of Education
    • Discover how collaborative action across the spectrum of community programs and agencies can serve to close the gaps in our education system and improve outcomes for those children most at risk.  Panelists representing a variety of community sectors will speak to their experience in serving at risk youth.  This discussion will also include an interactive media component for audience participants (bring your smart phones).

Afternoon Break Out Session 2, 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

  • Kelly Brown, LCSW (Child and Family Services) and Rita Wright, LMSW (Northern Arizona University)
    • Redefining Treatment for Children in Foster Care
    • This presentation examines the current state of the child welfare system and conventional intervention models.   The presenters will challenge traditional treatment goals for children in foster care and will propose alternate frameworks for meeting the behavioral health needs of children in care through cross-system collaborations.
