April 28, 2017, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Villa Ragusa in Downtown Campbell
35 South 2nd Street, Campbell, CA

Presented by the Child Abuse Council of Santa Clara County

Join professionals and community members from across the Bay Area for a day-long symposium on the impact of child abuse, how our community is working to address child abuse, and new approaches in prevention and treatment services. In its 35th year, the annual Child Abuse Council Symposium has long been known as an opportunity to hear new ideas, network with colleagues, and return to work with a fresh energy and perspective. Whether this is your first or 35th year in attendance, we look forward to your participation at this year's event.

Keynote Address by Charlie Appelstein, MSW:
No Such Thing As a Bad Kid! The Power of a Positive, Trauma-Informed, Strength-Based Approach in Reshaping the Lives of At-Risk Children, Youth and Families
Strength-based practice is an emerging approach that is exceptionally positive and inspiring in guiding at-risk children, youth, and families. Its focus is on strength-building rather than flaw-fixing. Strength-based practice begins with the belief that every young person has, or can develop, strengths and utilize past successes to mitigate problem behavior and enhance functioning. The keynote presentation, and subsequent workshop, will highlight many of the key principles and techniques of this transforming modality.  

Other Program Highlights:

  • Juvenile Hall, Persistent Disproportionality, and Juvenile Prosecutions of Those Who Have Also Been Crime Victims
  • Addressing the Needs of Children of Arrested and Incarcerated Parents
  • The Effects of Growing Up in Communities With Violence
  • Medical Community's Response to Reports of Child Abuse and Neglect
  • STAND BEAUTIFUL with Inspirational Speaker, Chloe Howard
  • Additional afternoon workshop session with the Keynote Speaker, Charlie Appelstein
  • Resource Fair featuring the Child Abuse Council Funded Agencies

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health | Community Connections: Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Seeking to prevent the early onset of mental illness in the youth population of Santa Clara County through early education and awareness, consistent treatment and community involvement, the Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope (REACH) Program launched its services in an effort to help address this growing mental health issue.

 

The program, based on the early detection models from the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Training Institute in Portland, Maine, is a collaboration of efforts between Momentum for Mental Health and Starlight Community Services.  The core mission of REACH is to help detect early warning signs of psychosis that may pose a threat to young adults, and to provide effective support and treatment.  Though often subtle, early symptoms of psychosis can be disabling and affect young people’s ability to complete schoolwork, interact socially, and accomplish daily tasks."...
