The annual "Kids Are Worth It!”® Conference inspires and equips professionals, advocates, parents and other caregivers with the most up-to-date strategies and techniques for strengthening families, preventing child abuse, and improving outc omes for at-risk children and families.

The conference attracts social workers, counselors, child care providers, family support workers, attorneys and others who work with or for children and families. Attendees represent many different voices, working in varying arenas: parenting education, family support, child abuse prevention and child protective services, intervention and treatment, domestic violence, early childhood education, health care, mental health, legal services, schools and in the home as parents. Their common vision is to build a world where all children grow in healthy and nurturing homes, schools, neighborhoods and communities.

Our 2013 conference includes plenary sessions by Marilyn Van Derbur and Carey Casey, as well as breakout sessions on various topics.

Marilyn Van Derbur, a former Miss America and author of Miss America by Day, is not only a child sexual abuse survivor but a powerful advocate for children and child sexual abuse prevention. As she shares her story, she will educate the audience on the long-term effects of child sexual abuse, the road to recovery, and the importance of prevention.

Carey Casey, CEO of the National Center for Fathering, is a dynamic speaker, inspiring audiences with a call to Championship Fathering. Championship Fathering is an effort to change the culture for today's children and the children of coming generations by creating a national fatherhood movement.

Breakout sessions include workshops on:

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy
  • Mandatory Reporting of Child Abuse
  • Communicating with Respect
  • Stewards of Children: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention
  • Helping Families Live Healthier Lives
  • Working with Families Impacted by the Criminal Justice System
  • ...and many more!
