Lives in the Balance Children's Mental Health Conference, Online, Thursday, 22. October 2020

Lives in the Balance Children's Mental Health Webinar

About this Event

Due to the pandemic, we're going virtual with this conference! And while that means we won't be able to gather together as usual, it also means that it will be accessible to more participants. Now, more than ever, school-based professionals, classroom teachers, administrators, mental health clinicians, school nurses, and paraprofessionals are challenged to effectively meet the needs of youth with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. This conference is about how to move things in the right direction, and features cutting-edge interventions and dynamic keynote speakers, including:

Dr. Peter Vermeulen, is the founder of Autism in Context based in Belgium, international consultant and author of more than 15 books on autism. A dynamic and humorous speaker, this is a rare opportunity to hear his insightful and novel understanding of autism spectrum disorders and its implications for treatment.

Dr. Ross Greene, is the originator of the Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model -- as described in his books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Human Beings -- Executive Producer of the documentary film The Kids We Lose, and Founding Director of Lives in the Balance.

Dr. Christopher Willard, psychologist and educational consultant specializing in mindfulness and Harvard Medical School faculty, has been practicing meditation for 20 years, and has led hundreds of workshops around the world. He currently is the president of the Mindfulness in Education Network.

Danna Thomas is a former Baltimore City Public Schools educator who now runs Happy Teacher Revolution, an international movement that hosts mental health and wellness support groups for teachers.

And that's not all. The two days also include breakout groups on a wide range of topics relevant to students and educators. We'll be adding breakout groups in the next several months, and you won't need to register beforehand for the specific breakout groups you plan to watch.

It's two full days you won't want to miss, filled with invaluable information and practical, innovative ideas and intervention strategies. And you can earn up to 12 CE's! You can register for both days or just one.
