      Professional Development and Opportunity Awareness in the Helping Professions Series

    By:  Jamelia Hand MHS, CADC, MISAI 

    DATE CHANGED to Saturday, June 24, 2017 

    With state budget challenges, program closures, mergers and a new presidential administration, there are many uncertainties amongst us. One that resonates with all of us is our concern regarding our PROFESSIONAL futures.

    We love our field but may find it difficult to remain engaged while resources are scarce. We also want to provide a quality service for clients. 

    We must work together to achieve our goals and this workshop is ALL ABOUT YOU! This is the FIRST of 3 parts in our professional development series.
