Day 1 of the National Council on Family Relationships Conference in Texas included sessions on:

  • The Impact of ACEs on Coping, Relationships and Health (and if you work in the Family Support sector and don’t know what ACEs are you need to find out!)
  • The Social Context Sustainability Strategies and “Success Sequences”
  • Helping Home Visitors Help Families
  • Engaging Students Through Learning and Innovative Uses of Technology”


Each session was filled with evidence-based (or research based) strategies, frameworks and service delivery that help families achieve their outcomes. My note book is already almost full of ideas and potential learning opportunities to explore further and incorporate into LEAD’s suite of workshops.


Cant wait for Day 2!!!
