We all carry quotes, stories and activities that resonate with our clients and groups more than others. We learned the tools during our education, while in the field, at conferences—but no matter where they were learned—they became our GEMS. Barton will provide participants the most effective tools he and his staff used while working with difficult to reach clients.
Barton led a nationally recognized school-based violence prevention program. He and his team educated and advocated for youth that have experienced relational violence, bullying, family violence, sexual assault and sex trafficking. Barton will share what worked, what didn’t, and what was most effective when creating partnership with schools as an outside agency.
