All children need to grow up in families! In May, 2012 foster and adoptive parents and professionals from every corner of New York State and beyond gathered together in Albany to celebrate those parenting or working with children in foster care or who have been adopted. At our 23rd annual NYSCCC conference, Family!, attendees learned new strategies to help children develop to their potential and heard what is new in law, policy, practice and research. The conference offered the most current research and practice information via dynamic, nationally known keynote speakers and experts in child welfare and related fields in 30 different workshop presentations. See the 2012 conference program below for a complete list of conference supporters, workshops, and nationally acclaimed keynote and workshop presenters. Audio recordings of workshops are available for purchase from Fleetwood Onsite Conference Recording.
