We have also been accepted to present at the Alliance for Children and Families 2006 National Conference. The 2006 National Conference will be held October 18-20 in St. Louis, Missouri at the Hyatt Regency, St. Louis at Union Station Contact Hillary Hanson with any questions. We appreciate these great honors and are looking forward to these events. We continue to get requests for training and consultation. At this time we have scheduled many Risking Connection trainings ( throughout the months of May and June.

We will be holding a 3-Day Basic Risking Connection Training July 12, 13 and 14, 2006 at Klingberg Family Centers in New Britain, CT. ( This training is open to any professionals who work with traumatized young people.

It is interesting and exciting to be participating in these trainings. Each time we meet new groups, talk over these approaches and connect with their concerns and fears it helps refine the theories and the practice.
