Click here to register for the Social Workers/Sentencing Advocates Conference held at the same time and location.  

These conferences will feature nationally recognized faculty in a mix of plenary sessions, simultaneous sessions and small group breakouts.  Participants will have the opportunity to choose the sessions to best fit their individual needs.  There will also be networking opportunities to create relationships to sustain the support provided during the live event. 

The schedule and topics in Biloxi will be very similar to the agenda linked below.   Some of the topics offered in break out sessions will differ due to the results of a needs assessment of those who register and faculty strengths.
