During the quickly evolving COVID-19 situation, we are monitoring training plans day-by-day. We will be deciding on how to proceed with currently planned training events based on the official guidance of public organizations, size and scale of events, location, and the decisions of our hosting agencies. The health and well-being of our staff, trainers and participants is of utmost importance.
Participants should make their own decisions regarding traveling to and attending group events, in conjunction with their health care provider and employer. We understand that, given the situation, registered participants may decide to not attend events.
As soon as a decision is made to cancel or postpone an event that you are registered for, you will be notified by our staff.
Sexual Health Conversations as an Essential Ally for Improving Trauma Treatment: A Series
Presented by Al Killen-Harvey and Douglas Braun-Harvey
Children, youth, and adults rarely encounter mental health professionals who proactively assess and integrate client sexual health within all stages of trauma treatment. Prioritization of sexual safety, while essential to current best practices for trauma treatment, too often fails to address client sexual health. Unfortunately, few trauma treatment professionals possess the comfort, willingness, and ability necessary for a sexual health assessment and clinical case formulation. This workshop will prepare attendees for initiating and responding to sexual health conversations with children, youth, parents, and colleagues.
This program meets the requirements of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and is approved for 1.5 CE credits. These CE credits may be applied toward AASECT certification and renewal of certification and will be handled by The Harvey Institute.

Leadership for the Greater Good
Presented by Azim Khamisa
In this talk, Azim Khamisa calls for a new kind of leader — a satyagrahi leader — to fol¬low in the footsteps of some of the world’s most inspiring role models. Building on Mahatma Gandhi’s practice of satyagraha, a method of using passive resistance to spark political and social change, satyagrahi leaders balance their ambition with their spirit and use their skills to benefit the larger community. To address society’s most daunting challenges, today’s leaders need competency in three areas: 1) to be brilliant in their professions 2) to work to create effective, viable, and affordable solutions to societal ills 3) have strong moral, ethical, and spiritual values.
This triad of competencies is critical to tackling the current degradation and divisiveness of society. It is Khamisa’s hope that the emerging and existing leaders will be inspired to emulate these competencies and help move us to a world that is inclusive, compassionate, and one that works for everyone.
Fostering a Future
Presented by Anthony Trucks
At the age of three years old, Anthony Trucks was placed into the foster care system. It’s a well-known fact that up to 50 percent of kids placed in the system will end up homeless upon emancipation, and 75% of prison inmates in the U.S. are former foster kids - needless to say, the odds were against him from the beginning. This looming reality was never lost on Anthony and he spent a good bulk of his childhood feeling adrift, unworthy, and listless. For years, he spent every day in survival mode, just trying to make it to the next day, week, and year in one piece. Join us as Anthony explains how he made the shift into his ideal identity and how he overcame his hardships.
