Track-B: PRACTITIONER

Being An Evidence-Based Practitioner (EBP): Core and Advance Skills for Providing Durable Client Services and Supports

3-Day, March 9 - 11, 2016

If you are an evidence-based individual and looking to develop, this is the track for you.

2-Day, March 10 - 11, 2016

A tremendous amount of effort is rightfully expended to insure professionals receive training and are equipped to address the needs of clients.
