Providing Behavioral Health & Addiction Treatment Tools
for Professionals Working with Youth & Families

Join your professional cohorts - live or virtual options
November 1 & 2, 2021 - Sheraton Conference Center, SLC
with special post-conference workshops offered November 3rd

Grow your practice and enjoy professional development opportunities at this special 25th anniversary program. 
Despite the challenges of 2020 and the evolving ‘comeback’ of 2021, this event is staying on course and continuing to deliver providers with the latest knowledge and practice tools for the critical issues facing their practice daily.  While you will be welcome to stay in the comfort of your own environment to capture these gems virtually, you are encouraged to register early to secure one of the limited numbers of ‘live’ spots in downtown Salt Lake City so you can also reconnect with colleagues and friends you may not have seen for a while and enjoy networking with new people who can join you as resources / consultants and referral sources.

Don’t waste your time on mediocre ‘free’ on-line programs offered as ‘marketing’ ploys by many for-profit organizations. 
Benefit from a pack of national and local experts together in one program.  Enjoy the extra perks of a live / hybrid event wherein you can select programs that will directly enhance your own practice by meeting your specific needs.  The format path will be a live program at the Sheraton Conference Center, downtown SLC, with expert faculty  which will also be livestreamed November 1 & 2.   After that, the full program will be available to ALL attendees on-demand for two months.   This will allow you to jump into over 100 hours of CEU / CME of this celebrated program for the same low registration cost.
