Join us for a Hybrid In-Person and Virtual event! The 2020 Conference will be a little different than in years past. In order to remain flexible in changing circumstances due to COVID-19 and varying Directed Health Measures, CIP will be holding one in-person event at the UNL Innovation Campus on September 28. We will also be streaming the event so that everyone across the state will be able to benefit from the education and speakers. We will allow as many in-person registrants attend the conference as is allowed by UNL safety guidelines and local health measures at the time of the conference.

The theme is “Seeing the Youth, Action Through Perceived Options” with a program presented by Lisa Thurau, Executive Director of Strategies for Youth. The conference will also include presentations by psychologists, law enforcement and education professionals from the state and each local area. We want youth to learn from their experiences, and prevent young people from moving deeper into systems, while also having their needs met. Stakeholders can expect to understand and learn to identify underlying issues related to trauma and adolescent development, to meet youth where they are, and build relationships for positive outcomes.

Strategies for Youth is a non-profit organization, advocating for youth in juvenile justice and providing evidenced-based training for law enforcement for interacting with youth. They describe themselves on StrategiesForYouth.org as follows: “Strategies for Youth actively engages police, youth, and youth-serving community-based organizations in an interdisciplinary approach to addressing several problems: the proliferation of contentious encounters between police and youth, unnecessary arrests of youth for minor offenses, and disproportionate police contact with youth of color.”

This conference has been approved for 6.25 hours of CLEs from Nebraska Attorney Services.
