For the past 9 years, several state and local agencies have joined together to host the annual Trauma Informed Care Conference. Each year, the premiere conference has brought together over 500 diverse participants representing a wide array of service providers. This year's theme, "Breakthrough!  A New Kind of Storm!” continues to use the "Storm" as the analogy for "Trauma" as with previous year's themes.   A breakthrough is something that changes the course of your life going forward and ensures that things will never be the same for you again. For the past several years, COVID-19 has been the new storm for us.  COVID-19 has been a human, economic and social crisis and continues to substantially affect mental health among adults and children. 

Through innovative and thought-provoking sessions, it is our expectation the conference will stimulate the process of reclaiming hope and navigating our new normal. This includes inspiring hope that survivors can and do recover and thrive, practicing self-care to better connect with our clients and others, and applying principles of Trauma Informed Care to respond effectively and prevent further trauma.


This is a “Virtual Conference”. You will need appropriate equipment to participate (i.e. laptop, desktop, etc...)*. You will be required to sign into our Zoom virtual platform by entering your name. Workshops require attendee interaction to verify attendance, chat, Q & A sessions, etc....
