This year's conference is better than ever! We have the full day intensive workships with David Burton, David Thorton, Michael Miner and Robin Wilson. they are talking about topics for adolescents and for adults ranging from community based solutions to emerging research on factors that contribute to recidivism. The keynote this year is Reverend Debra Haffner author of Balancing Acts, the Unitarian Universalist policy addressing the issue of sex offenders in the congregation. I think you will agree that the topics and the workship leaders represent some of the most cutting edge issues in the field.
