Register for the 9th Annual ABC Conference

Register for the 9th Annual ABC Conference

The 9th Annual ABC Conference will take place November 16, 2018 at the Moraine Business and Conference Center (Building M) in Palos Hills, IL!

Children and families from all demographic and socioeconomic backgrounds in Illinois experience trauma, adversity, and chronic stress. Social determinants such as where we live, work, and play, can further exacerbate positive or negative physical, emotional, and behavioral health issues. The critical factor that determines if a child, family, and/or community can manage trauma, adversity, and chronic stress successfully is resilience: the process by which the child, family, and/or community moves through a traumatic/stressful event, utilizing various protective factors for support, and returning to “baseline” in terms of an emotional and physiologic response to the stressor.

Caregivers and other support systems – including child serving professionals – have the unique opportunity to bolster key protective factors for children and families to prevent long-term negative outcomes. Those critical protective factors include:

  1. Caregiver Resilience
  2. Social Connections
  3. Concrete Support in Times of Need
  4. Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development
  5. Social and Emotional Competence of Children

Protective factors are only one tool used to build resilience. The 9th Annual ABC Conference will deliver additional valuable information about how to build resilience in children, families, communities, and ourselves, and advocate for those we serve.
