Prevention Conference Overview

As South Carolina’s leader in the prevention of child abuse, neglect and injuries, Children’s Trust will host its biennial Prevention Conference in 2017. This two-day event is designed to help home visitors, social workers, counselors, program administrators and other child-serving professionals with their work to keeping children safe and families strong.

The conference will also include a showing of the film Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope by Karen Pritzker and James Redford. The film examines a movement among pediatricians, educators and communities who are using cutting edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

The 2015 Prevention Conference featured more than 600 attendees, 40 speakers and 30-plus training sessions. The 2017 event promises to continue that tradition and deliver rich content, dynamic speakers and targeted visibility for conference sponsors.
