Children, Families, Society: A Half-Century of Change Symposium

When: March 29-30, 2012
Where: University Center, Greenville, S.C.

The Fourth Annual Greenville Family Symposium offers a forum for constructive dialogue and an opportunity to test ideas among peers, and to engage collectively in crafting policy and program responses to the most pressing issues of our time. We will look backward to see how well human services adapted to changes in social realities — what went well, what didn’t, what even made things worse, and what is still unsettled. In that context, we will also look forward and consider the ways that human service professionals and organizations can help both families and communities to enjoy greater well-being as resources ebb and flow and as ideas come and go. How can a better understanding of these large-scale trends illuminate the challenges for individual families? What can human service professionals do to facilitate positive outcomes for their clients and communities in a changing context?
