Call for Presenters

The DFPS Division of Prevention and Early Intervention and the HHSC Texas Home Visiting Program are proud to announce their decision to co-host the annual Partners in Prevention (PIP) Conference on October 1-2, 2015 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas.  The event is a multi-day training opportunity for community-based providers of child abuse prevention, juvenile delinquency prevention, early childhood development, substance abuse prevention, mental health promotion, and family violence awareness services, as well as program directors, direct service delivery staff, crisis counselors, and parent educators.  Each year, a number of Texas state agencies collaborate to present this opportunity for providers and professionals to gather information to help strengthen families and improve communities.

The PIP Conference is a great venue to share your knowledge and skills with a broad audience, and to improve services to families throughout the state of Texas.  DFPS and HHSC invite you to apply, share your expertise, and enhance the skills and knowledge of prevention practitioners and parent educators in community-based, social service agencies.  We are soliciting workshops that will emphasize evidence-based practices in one or more of the following areas: 

  • Child Abuse/Neglect Prevention
  • Community Collaborations
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Cultural Competency
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Ethics
  • Family Violence Awareness
  • Family Support Services
  • Home Visitation
  • Juvenile Delinquency Prevention
  • Leadership and Management
  • Mental Health Promotion
  • Parent Education
  • Positive Youth Development
  • Program Evaluation
  • Program Sustainability
  • Promoting Resiliency
  • Substance Abuse Prevention     

Of particular interest are workshop proposals that align their main topic(s) with the conference theme of "Building Partnerships to Strengthen Families."
