Mountain West Child Life Conference

Child Life Amplified: Your Mountain is Waiting
Hello guys, I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity for PDU's. A child life conference in Denver, Colorado will be happening September 23-24th. 

I will be attending, I booked my spot and my flight. I can't wait to learn some new things in the Child Life World.

Here is the link to the brochure:

The Keynote speaker is Kathleen McCue. You all probably know her name from her book How to Help Children through a Parent's Serious Illness. She will be talking about self care, which is so important for a child life specialist.

Then you can pick either Track A or Track B

Track A is devoted to Children and Grief: How Worden's Four Tasks of Mourning Guide Our Practice

Track B you can pick and choose a morning session and an afternoon session
1. Understanding and Working to Migrate Stress and it's lifelong consequences
2. Incorporating Child Life into Disaster Relief Services
1.Outcomes of Simulator Use in MRI
2.Understanding and Supporting Grieving Youth

I am going to be attending Track B 1 for the morning and 2 for the afternoon

My old co-worker at my Idaho Hospital will be attending Track A so hopefully she can tell me about her experiences as well.

Hope to see you there
