I wanted to take a moment to send a big, belated “thank you” to Primary Children’s for hosting “Child Life Elevated,” the 2nd MWCLA conference. It was an amazing success! A big thank you to the host committee, including the staff in the Pediatric Education Services department at Primary Children’s, for all their hard work, time and effort. It was a great day! Thank you, also, to Dr. Garry Landreth for sharing your expertise on building therapeutic relationships with children. I also want to thank everyone for their participation in this conference. We had 110 attendees from the following states: Utah, Idaho, Colorado, California, Montana, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Texas.
Disciplines attending the conference included: CCLS, CLS, students, LCSW, Social Workers, interns, MD, parent, practitioner, Health Educator, mental health counselor, child therapist, recreational therapist, therapist, case manager, developmental specialist, assistant professor, school counselor, teachers, marketing, imaging, volunteers, volunteer coordinator, chief administrative officer.
