UT Child Welfare Conference 2017- Call for Presenters!

UT Child Welfare Conference 2017 
In the Child Welfare field, we encounter youth who are disproportionally represented in the system or do not have access to the resources they need due to their status or identity. As a child welfare practitioner, researcher and/or advocate it is essential that we learn more about their experiences and learn the skills needed to guide them to successful outcomes. This is why we are focusing on special populations for the 2017 UT Child Welfare Conference. Please consider submitting a proposal that focuses on one or more of the following:

  • Teen Pregnancy
  • Immigration
  • Youth w/ disabilities
  • LGBTQ Youth
  • Other special populations

*$100 dollar honorarium for presenters!
