Training & Professional Development

TXICFW believes that professionals who have the proper support and tools are the most successful at helping children and their families thrive. That’s why we are committed to providing opportunities for professionals to expand their skills and create a space where children, parents, families, practitioners, non-profits and organizations can feel supported and are provided with high quality instruction that they can be incorporated into the workplace tomorrow. Our conference and workshops are interactive, skills-based trainings that aim to be accessible and applicable to their intended audience but also larger communities.
