CAP Conference

Date: March 15, 2019

Time: 8:15 am

Location: Adelphi University

Held every spring, the CAP conference brings together counselors, parents, administrators and experts to discuss important issues in our community.

Nassau Counselors’ Association Presents the 2019 Counselors, Administrators and Parents (CAP) Conference: Trauma Sensitive Schools

Responding to the NYS Mental Health and Counseling mandates, join us as we explore ways to build schools that address the social-emotional needs of all students.  By implementing trauma-sensitive policies, procedures, and practices we can learn how to create an environment where students and faculty feel heard, protected, and safe.
