Monday, June 1st, Lake Ozark Mo; Calo Teens and Calo Preteens hosted its 9th annual conference at the Four Seasons Resort in Lake Ozark, Missouri last month. The "Interventions in Action: Attachment, Adoption and Trauma-Informed Care" Conferenece brought more than 100 professionals together from across the country including educational consultants, psychologists, clinicians, schools, social service agencies and programs to interact and learn from thought leaders in the field. Guest speakers included Brainspotting developer Dr. David Grand, Authors Dr. Julie Lopez and Mary DeMichele and attachment specialist Deena McMahon.
According to Nicole Fuglsang, Vice President of Calo Admissions, “The goal of the conference was to go beyond theory and provide attendees with an opportunity to see what different interventions look like in an applied setting. We think that’s where the learning takes place”. Examples include a David Grand Brainspotting demo to a panel discussion and role playing highlighting the differences in attachment theory, adoption competency and trauma informed treatment interventions. Mary DeMichele also facilitated an improv group where everyone had the opportunity to experience one of her most impactful programs from her book, One Rule Improv, which not only helps students overcome self-limiting beliefs, but helps build confidence in life.
The three-day conference held annually in May is also an opportunity for referral partners to tour the Calo campuses (www.caloteens.com) and meet the world class Calo canines. Attendees were also treated to paddleboard yoga, a roof top reception and a dance party.
