Yavapai County AZ (June 23, 2021) – MATFORCE is partnering with Yavapai County Adult Probation Department and the Yavapai Justice and Mental Health Coalition to bring Networking for Solutions back to Yavapai County.
After a hiatus from regular, in person meetings due to COVID-19 restrictions, the networking group has reestablished a regular schedule of meetings for the year. Starting Friday, July 9th, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, Prescott area professionals can meet to learn more about the impact of developmental adversity (trauma, chaos, neglect) on adult behavior and capacity to change. Beth Dunn, MS, LPC, will explore the “3 R’s” (regulate, relationship, & reason) and how to manage them to lessen recidivism. A time to share resources and events will be included at the end of the presentation. Attendees are encouraged to bring resources to share.
