The awards presentation was part of a conference for individuals such as clinical and support staff, program managers, advocates, psychologists, counselors, social workers, nurses, educators and administrators working in all fields, including corrections, probation/parole, prisons/jails, specialized mental health facilities and specialized drug and alcohol facilities.

This year's conference provided information about current approaches for juveniles, medication assisted treatment, risk-needs-responsivity in practice, as well as concerns for persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities. It also consisted of workshops offering first-person perspectives, psychotherapeutic treatment and wellness.

Congratulations, Jennifer!
