Home visitation programs are one of the fastest growing most dynamic programs in terms of true prevention and evidence –based outcomes. Despite the efficacy shown by these programs, they pose a number of challenges for in-home visitors trying to engage high-risk families while they strive for long-term positive change. Collaboration and advocacy efforts across the State of Utah are important in securing the future of these programs. This workshop will provide a forum to discuss where we are as a state in our proactive approach to in-home services, the challenges we have taken on and how we can continue working for healthier Utah families.
This session will be presented by Shannon Trapier on Tuesday, November 13 from 10:15 until 11:45 am.
Shannon is the program supervisor for the Healthy Families program at Prevent Child Abuse Utah. She completed her bachelor’s degree in social work at California State University, Fresno and later completed a master of management and public administration at the University of Phoenix. Shannon has worked in the social work field for 20 years in home visiting programs, DCFS, and residential treatment programs.
