HOPE Con (Annual Mental Health Training)

HOPE is in the planning stages of our 2019 Mental Health Training Series - HOPECON

Below is information from our 2018 training. Thank you for joning us! Please check back in January 2019. 

Hope Family Health Center is committed to providing Continuing Education opportunities to Professionals in the Community.  We pride ourselves in sharing with other mental health professionals innovative ideas on how to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health in working with their clients. 

In 2017, we had the honor of hosting "From Resistance to Resilience:  25 Techniques for Motivation and Positive Change" presented by Fred J. Hanna, Ph. D. at our 11th Annual Mental Health Training. Over One hundred and forty mental health professionals had the opportunity to gain knowledge & Intervention Techniques  from a dynamic speaker. There is no doubt that acquired skills and interventions will  be applied to any Mental Health setting including Schools, Private Practice, Hospice, Hospital, Juvenile & Adult Probation, among many others.   

In 2018, we are honored to have Robert Rhoton, PsyD, LPC, D.A.A.E.T.S., Vice President from International Association of Trauma Professionals who currently serves on the Arizona Department of Health Services Trauma Informed Care (TIC) task-force as a community member. Rhoton will be presenting 'Kissing the Dragon: Using a Trauma- Focused Approach to Create Change and Resiliency'. The dragons created by trauma and adversity interfere with relationship, learning, health, and the ability to grow into well-balanced, productive and responsible adults. Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for this informative presentation. 6 CEUs for SW, LPC, LCDC, and Psychologists. Friday, May 25, 2018 from 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM at Edinburg Conference Center 118 Paseo Del Prado, Edinburg, TX. 

HOPE's Annual Mental Health Training is every year during the month of May. The training not only provides the attendees the convenience of learning, but to stay close their work/home. Our attendees have expressed the convenience of this venue and we would like to see you there next year.


2018 HOPE's Annual Mental Health Training (HOPE Con)  was hosted in Edinburg Conference Center at 118 Paseo Del Prado, Edinburg, TX 78539. This venue offered large projected screens, a main stage, and approximately 3,100, a precise sound system, and adjustable lighting to comfort the attendees.
