About this year’s Conference Theme −
Caring for the Whole Child: Mind, Body & Spirit

To improve outcomes for the children and youth we serve, educators, counselors, clinicians and leaders need to continuously build the skills necessary to make a positive difference. The 2018 NAREN-TranZed Conference will focus on providing a smorgasbord of proven skills that educators, counselors, leaders and support professionals can use with at-risk students in a wide variety of contexts. Rooted in the belief that building adult capacity improves student outcomes, this year’s conference will offer workshops designed to build attendee skills in: 1) Relationship Building; 2) Instructional Strategies; 3) Motivation and Engagement; 4) Behavior Management; 5) Trauma-Responsive Education; 6) Crisis Management, and; 7) Staff Well-Being. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications that 1) teach or model one or more specific skills and; 2) are related to one or more of the 7 categories above. In addition to the focus on skill-building, some additional highlights about the conference are below.

The Baltimore Convention Center – NAREN has grown remarkably in the past several years and we need a bigger site to accommodate all of our attendees. The 2018 NAREN Conference will be held in the Baltimore Convention Center in the beautiful Inner Harbor area of the city. We anticipate hundreds to attend and the Convention Center provides a venue that will enhance everyone’s conference experience!

Continues to be the BEST professional conference I have attended in the past 2 years!

A great conference for me to attend as an alternative principal. There is not a lot of information like this available in my area and I am going home with a full box of tools.

Thank you for all the reminders about how I SHOULD be. Leaving energized, recharged and ready to make a difference.
