Trauma-Informed Approaches to Addressing Family Violence and Child Welfare

The University of Northern Iowa Department of Social Work invites social workers, mental health professionals, social service workers, students, and members of the community to our annual Trauma-Informed Care conference! We have a fantastic line-up of speakers, all of whom are experts in the field of trauma, children’s mental health, and clinical practice. This year, we are offering both in-person and virtual options. We hope to see you there!

COVID-19 Precautions: To help promote public safety, we strongly encourage the wearing of masks at this event. Hand sanitizing stations will be available, and breakout rooms will be large enough to ensure adequate social distancing. We encourage everyone to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations.
