Tip of the Week: Conference update from Munich

August 31, 2018

It is such an honor to be at the 5th IPWSO International Caregivers’ Conference representing Latham Centers as well as the United States as the US delegate for IPWSO. Over 160 people from 26 countries come together every three years to create a best practices manual for caregivers and families worldwide. I will be leading a 12-hour workshop over three days on best practices for relationships and sexuality at which point I will share in the task of creating a chapter for our new best practices manual on this vital topic. More to come! Sending best wishes from Bavaria!
