The Minnesota Psychological Association (MPA) will host its 2014 President’s Conference, addressing the topic of trauma-informed care. The Conference will be held Monday, November 10, 2014, at St. Thomas University, Opus Hall, in downtown Minneapolis. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m.; the program is from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Continuing Education hours are available, and both MPA members and non-members are invited.
This conference identifies linkages among Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) and integrated care so participants can: 1) identify sources of trauma, 2) effectively structure services that reduce traumatic impacts on patients, providers and the community, and 3) integrate trauma-informed care in small practices, health care systems and the broader community.
The conference will feature Maggie Bennington-Davis, M.D. Dr. Bennington-Davis is currently Chief Medical and Operating Officer for Cascadia Behavioral Health in Portland, Oregon. She attended medical school and completed her residency at Oregon Health Services University. The conference will also include four panelists: Glenace Edwall, Ph.D., Psy.D., MPP; Willie Garrett, M.S., L.P., Ed.D.; Bravada Garrett-Akinsanya, Ph.D., L.P. and Macaran Baird, M.D., M.S.
