Another Step for Youth Services and Treatment

October 4, 2012 News

Here at New Hope, we consider ourselves lucky to be able to work alongside so many wonderful organizations to promote the health and well-being of youths here in the Carolinas. It is so wonderful to interact with other professionals who share our same goals, and even better when we see the marvelous results these combined efforts yield. Still, no matter how far we feel we have come, there is always more to be done to enhance the prevention and treatment of troubling behavior in adolescents.

For this reason, New Hope is excited to see our own Clinical Coordinator, Amanda Matthews, attending and presenting at next month’s North Carolina Juvenile Services Association Fall Conference.

NCSJA aims to promote awareness and quality for youth treatment services, including prevention and professional education.  The association does wonderful work to prepare professionals in our field for the challenges they can expect to face in their endeavors.

This conference (taking place November 7-9) is a valuable opportunity to collect the insights of others, while providing them with the invaluable knowledge and approaches harnessed at New Hope. Amanda Matthews will be presenting on Considerations in Outpatient Treatment for Children and Adolescents with Sexual Behavior Problems.

Best of luck to Amanda and all the other presenters! We are looking forward to the  experiences that will be shared.
