Call for Proposals on Cultural and Community Factors for October TCOM Conference

TCOM 2018 participants at poster session.

What impact do cultural and community factors have on our approach to working with families and the systems that they interact with? Members of the TCOM collaborative will explore that question at the 15th annual TCOM Conference on Culture and Community in Palm Springs, CA on October 2-4, 2019.

Strategies associated with TCOM, or Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management, are now used across the world to create a common language in such diverse places as Italy, Kenya, Hong Kong, and Singapore. This year, about 80 percent of all children and youth served by the public sector in the United States will participate in a CANS assessment process. Given this widespread use, we need to understand the impact of cultural and community factors on our common language and shared approaches.

The Praed Foundation and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago are now accepting proposals for presentations at this conference. Options are a 90-minute workshop, a 60-minute presentation, or a poster presentation. Submit your proposal here.

Deadlines for submission are April 1, 2019. Applicants will be notified of acceptance in May. If accepted, presenters must submit their CV, brief bio, and headshot.

TCOM is also holding its first regional conference this year in the Northwest. Setting the stage: Creating a Shared Vision to Support Transformation will be held May 1 and 2 in Boise, Idaho. Registration is open for this conference.
