October 20-22, 2005
Estes Park, Colorado, USA
The Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Institute is presenting a National Disaster Mental Health Conference in Estes Park, Colorado October 20-22, 2005. We have put together what we think is a first class program with presenters from various parts of the US and other countries. One emphasis of the conference will be on the Tsunami responses. We will also have daily Table Top Discussions on a number of hot issues and topics. Given the recent devastation due to Hurricane Katrina, we are also attempting to have an update on that incident as well. This conference will be a great opportunity for sharing information and networking. We also plan some fun after hour activities for attendees.
Continuing Education certificates will be available for each of these as well
as certificates for contact hours for conference attendance. Here is the link
for the Conference Web Page with all the information:
On November 10-11, 2005, the Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Institute will present the Fifth Annual Critical Incident Stress Management Training Workshops at the Holiday Inn On The River in Casper, Wyoming.
