Our October 10th event was a great opportunity to talk with four area legislators, and we are so thankful for their attendance! Don't miss this chance to meet with our elected officials and let them know how important it is to advocate for children and families.

The COCAN Board invites you to join us and St. Louis area legislators for 2nd coffee and discussion on November 21, 2014 at 9:00am. The location will be Youth in Need in Olivette at 9378 Olive Blvd., Suite 301.

We hope you will plan to join us to hear what our legislators are thinking about upcoming issues and legislation around child abuse and neglect. COCAN will use this opportunity to introduce our organization, its mission and membership as a future resource for these policy makers.

Watch for a reminder and details. Please plan to attend.



Share Relentlessly, Steal Shamelessly

Friday, December 5, 2014
The Heights
8001 Dale Avenue
Richmond Heights, MO 63117
The fee is $10 for non-members, cash or check only.

With the plethora of interventions, tools and techniques available via the Internet, it is often challenging to know what is valid, helpful and rooted in best practices. Dr. Brett Drake will discuss methods to identify valid, best practice tools via the Internet.

This unique workshop also will present an opportunity for local practitioners to enhance their clinical tools and skills by borrowing from the expertise of their peers. Staff from local child welfare and social service agencies will share their favorite tools and activities to support youth in the following areas: Attachment, grief and loss, trauma, anger management, coping skills, self injurious behaviors/suicidal ideation, social skills and self-esteem.

All attendees will be able to “steal” these ideas to take back to enhance their work with the children and youth in our community. Copies of the tools will be made available to all participants, courtesy of COCAN. COCAN Board members and staff from member agencies will facilitate small group discussions to share the tools by topic area. Door prizes will be raffled, including copies of some favorite games and tools from the workshop.
