2 Understanding & Restoring Traumatized Youth Adam McCormick, MSW, PhD Assistant Professor of Social Work Director of MSW Program University of Texas at El Paso Friday 8:15-4:15 Description: This presentation will explore the complexity of childhood trauma and the strong neurobiological responses that trauma can evoke on children. A framework for intervention will be introduced with a focus on what role the school, community, and care-givers play in supporting the youth who have experienced trauma. Outcomes: 1. Learn how trauma occurs within a broad complex that includes children s personal characteristics, life experiences, and current circumstances. 2. Appraise the manner in which trauma events often generate secondary adversities, life changes, and distressing reminders in children s daily lives. 3. Develop a framework for intervention that addresses the level of functioning of primary care-giving environments, including home, school, and family unit. 4. Recognize how interventions with trauma exposed children and adolescents impact the practitioner working with these populations. Length of workshop: 6.0 hours Dr. Adam McCormick: McCormick received his MSW from the University of Texas at Austin and his PhD in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington. He has authored articles in the Journal of School Social Work, Children and Schools, Journal of Social Work Education, and Journal of Public Child Welfare and many others. He has presented on a number of child welfare issues including the overrepresentation of minority groups in child welfare, reducing bullying in schools, gay and lesbian issues in child welfare, as well as the role of sibling relationship in foster care. McCormick worked as an assistant professor of social work at St. Ambrose prior to taking a position with the University of Texas. He also has eight years of experience working in the child welfare system in Texas.

Objectives: By the end of this training participants will be able to: 1. Articulate the ethical dilemmas of social work. 2. Analyze the structural complexity and role conflicts of social work. 3. Collaborate effectively with clients and constituents. 4.

4 Project Connection: School-Based Mentoring Program Thursday 1:00-2:30 Description: Project Connection is a unique school-based mentor program that was developed six years ago to support students who were not connecting in the school, had poor attendance, struggled academically, presented with social emotional concerns and/or demonstrated poor social skills in terms of interacting with students and staff. This program was created based on systems theory to connect the students and their families to the school and the positive results have been tremendous. Objectives: 1. Learn about a demonstrated successful school-based mentor program for students at risk of not achieving academic or emotional/success in school and their families. 2. Look at the results and learn about the successes and challenges that have happened so that you can avoid some of the mistakes we have already made and build on the successful aspects of the program. 3. Learn how to replicate this program in your school community, along with possible funding sources. Length of Workshop: 1.5 hours Heather Alden Pope, LICSW earned her masters in social work from the University of Houston, Texas.

7 Welcome to Davenport The Midwest Conference will be in Davenport, Iowa, located on the beautiful riverfront of the Mighty Mississippi River. Davenport has an active downtown with much to do and see. Walkers, bikers, and joggers can enjoy the bike trail that runs along the river, just across River Drive from the Radisson. In winter, bald eagles arrive to feed in the open water below the lock and dam. Davenport residents and visitors also enjoy the city for its entertainment, arts, music and recreation. Recommended places to visit that are within a short walk of the conference site are the Bucktown Center for the Arts, Adler Theater, and the Figge Art Museum. If breweries or a distillery is more your style, check out the Front Street Brewery, a brew pub, or its tasting room at the Freight House, which offers a wonderful view of the Mississippi. The Mississippi River Distilling Company in LeClaire is known for its awarding winning Vodka. The Great River Brewery on 2 nd Street is a short walk from the Radisson. The Village of East Davenport, two miles upriver, is updated to include gift and art shops, restaurants, and coffee shops. Lagomarcino Confectionary is located in the Village. Lago s is a locally owned chocolate store with an old fashioned soda fountain atmosphere. Great ice cream sundae options and locally made candies are available. Right across from the Radisson is another well known local chocolate shop, Country Manor Chocolates. Country Manor offers delightful homemade and hand dipped chocolates. Many great gift ideas can be found at these shops. Davenport is the home of Frank Fritz, seen on cable TV s American Pickers. Fritz was born and raised in Davenport, where he met Mike Wolfe. They discovered their shared joy of collecting what others may see as junk. Their shop, Antique Archaeology, is in LeClaire, IA, just 15 miles upriver from Davenport. If you are not interested in venturing out of downtown Davenport, join your social work friends on Thursday November 7 for a night of local hospitality at the Blackhawk Bowl & Martini Lounge at historic Blackhawk Hotel, just a block from the Radisson.
