Education Series

Every year WACC hosts four Luncheon Lectures and an Annual Conference to educate children and youth-serving professionals in our community on the newest research and trends to prevent child abuse. Issues concerning children, parents, and families are presented by local professionals from the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, local human services agencies, or private practices. Attendees include youth services professionals, students, and the public. Past topics have focused on:

  • Violence against children

  • Empowering girls

  • Fostering resilience

  • Grief and loss

  • The role of fathers in children’s lives

  • Helping children and families cope with special challenges, such as Attention Deficit Disorder.

Our 2019-20 Luncheon Lecture series will address how to help children find their way towards mental health and well-being. Over the years, attendance has swelled and many attendees look forward to this yearly opportunity to meet colleagues and share in learning valuable information they can use in their work with families and children.

The 2019-20 Luncheon Lecture series will start in October 9, 2019. To learn more about this series, see the information page linked below.
