Conversations for Caring

The Conversations program coordinates community education initiatives that include trainings for providers, both professional and volunteer, serving older persons, Veterans, persons living with disabilities of all ages, and their families. 

Training topics can range from The Science of Addiction to Provider Self-care and from The Impact of Poverty on Health to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Trainings are offered by area service providers as well as the faculty of regional colleges and universities. The program also offers Social Work, Nursing, and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) continuing education credits. The trainings are offered online and in-person throughout the region in a number of host sites, who generously offer their gathering space and hospitality free of charge. In this way, the Conversations program is a collaboration of community partners to support and nurture the region’s vital network of care who together serve some of the most vulnerable individuals in our communities.
