Positive Approaches to Recovery: Populations, Providers, and Programs

June 22 through 26, 2015

Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex

Indiana, PA

If you want to know more about helping children of all ages, and especially high-risk youth, MARTI's Bi-Annual Summer Conference is for you. Come join us for our 26th conference at IUP. This year's school is designed to meet the ever-changing needs of today's youth and families. Presentations over the years have included the latest information on treatment for young children, improving school-based programs, working with adolescents, sexual abuse intervention, improving cultural competency, adult recovery strategies, anger and violence, building resiliency in children, and many other exciting topics. Year after year, MARTI has provided the latest techniques for working with children, excellent presenters, and special sections for educators and clinicians, all at a low cost. We hope to see you in June!

Brochures are now available.

Comments from Past Participants

"The MARTI conference was one of the best I've been to in a long time! There was a variety of topics presented offering lots of choices. The presenters were knowledgeable, prepared, and engaging. This was a wonderful, fulfilling experience that I would recommend to anyone. I would definitely return, and encourage other providers, counselors, teachers, etc. to attend as well."
Sue, Home Visitation Program Counselor

"Attending the conference for a second time, I didn't feel it was possible to have a week-long program on the same level of excellence as I experience the first. Happily, this year's conference proved me very wrong!"
Sheila, High School Teacher

"Excellent personal and professional experience. Very empowering."
Mike, Dual Diagnosis Counselor

"I have never been to a conference where I was so attentive, interested, and able to experience learning."
Robert, Psychiatric Nurse

"It is head and shoulders above many of the conferences I have attended!"
