2020 Alia Summits-2

Intensive Permanency Services Summit  |  May 5-7, 2020

Child welfare workers, supervisors, and leaders: Learn about the key ingredients of healing work that lead to permanency for all youth.

We only offer this Summit once a year, and we'd love to have you join us in 2020!

Relationships are where healing takes place, and we'll teach you how to create space for youth to heal while also building their family connections and personal supports. We'll dig in to real IPS case studies - the challenges and specific tools, and you'll learn how this healing work can integrate into your current strategies.

Fine print: Meals are mostly included: breakfast is included in Alia’s preferred hotel partner’s stay, lunches provided, and one group dinner on Day 1 is included. All travel costs and arrangements are the responsibility of the attendees. Summits are held at the Alia Innovation Hub (1000 University Ave W, Suite 230, St. Paul, MN 55104). Creative billing and payments for Summit fees are available such as payment in installments, over two fiscal years, to include travel, or whatever special arrangements must be made to accommodate budgetary constraints or goofy rules you may have to follow to attend. Special requests: Our goal is radical hospitality and we will ensure special requests for food, private space (for prayer, regulation, lactation, etc.), or anything else you might need to feel as welcome as possible, are met. Optional preparation work (i.e articles, videos) will be provided to you as an opportunity for enhanced learning.
