Description

The Mental and Behavioral Health Conference: Making Meaningful Intergenerational Connections, hosted by Cal State LA, is the start of a new training and professional development opportunity for students, practitioners, community members, and parents.

Focusing on innovative theory, research, and evidence-based practice this conference emphasizes the need for collaborative practice to support successful mental health needs of individuals across the lifespan. With the ever changing impact media and technology has on our society as well as the social justice movement within our schools, this conference will identify the significant policy and practice changes affecting our students, ranging from infants to young adults. Additionally, practitioners and parents will learn effective ways in which we can support those faced with trauma and significant developmental concerns.

The conference will have presentations that focus around four main strands:

1. Trauma and Risk

2. Child Development

3. Social Justice, Law, & Leadership

4. Media & Technology
