This year, Caring Connections offers several new and exciting features. First, Dr. Alan Godwin, Licensed Pschologist and author, will be our plenary speaker. His topic, Helping Others Deal with Difficult People, has been a favorite with those who have attended his workshops across the country. Both professional therapists and those in pastoral care roles will find this presentation practical and enjoyable. New for this year, Caring Connections is offering several specialty tracks comprised of related topics and practical techniques. For therapists who work with children and adolescents, programs are offered on topics such as attachment, ethics, co-parenting, and autism spectrum disorders. For counselors, the couples track offers attendees programs that include the newest research and techniques on neurobiology as it relates to relationships; brief marital therapy; Emotion Focused Therapy; and others. We are also excited to have two programs designed for clinical supervisors addressing the myriad challenges that come with supervision. For attendees who work in the pastoral world, we have multiple programs addressing topics such as adolescents and technology; helping others through suffering; addictions; ethics in pastoral care; conflict resolution; and more. Attendees may stay within one track or pick and choose. (Note: Programs that may be eligible for continuing education credit are marked as such.)
