Theme: The Challenge of Change: A Human Services Response
The field of Human Services is already full of challenge. Every day we are called to meet the needs of clients, programs, students, and budgets. What we need is CHANGE. How can we better utilize our services and resources to meet these needs? What changes have you implemented that improved outcomes for your population? What changes would you like to see in programming, collaboration and resources? We will all benefit from being change-focused and change-ready. The SOHS 2016 conference promises to provide you with strategies, concepts, tools and philosophies that will assist us in becoming more effective, change-embracing educators, students, and practitioners!
