Description

“Engaging Families, Engaging Systems”

Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Omaha, is hosting the 1st Biennial Midwest Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Conference in 2018, co-provided by Iowa PCIT and Project Harmony. The goal of this conference is to provide continuing education and networking for new and experienced PCIT providers. We are excited to offer engaging keynote speakers and relevant topics for our local Midwest community as well as the larger community of PCIT therapists. A list of our speakers will be made available shortly.

For our first year, our theme is “Engaging Families, Engaging Systems.” We know that PCIT is effective, but we also know that there are many reasons that children and families are not always able to access or complete these services and that the many systems surrounding children can have a significant impact on the accessibility and feasibility of PCIT. The aim of this year’s conference is to focus on factors that enhance family engagement and increase awareness and collaboration with a range of child-serving systems (e.g., schools, primary care, child welfare, juvenile justice).
