15th Annual TCOM Conference

Culture and Community: Sharing Stories from the Collaborative

Culture and community are two almost inseparable factors that have a significant impact in how our stories unfold and how others can understand us. As the only comprehensive management approach that fully integrates culture into its fabric, TCOM calls on us to be increasingly aware of the role of culture and community in how we decide to help youth and families. The TCOM community is in a unique position to help bring people together while still respecting our differences. 

Strategies associated with TCOM are now used across the world to create a common language in such diverse places as Italy, Kenya, Hong Kong, and Singapore. This year, approximately 80% of all children and youth served by the public sector in the United States will participate in a CANS assessment process. Given this widespread use, it is incumbent upon us to understand, to the best of our abilities the impact of cultural and community factors on the applications of our common language and shared approaches.

We’re so excited to announce our upcoming 15th annual TCOM Conference! We’ll be heading to Palm Springs, California on October 2-4 and we hope to see you there! You can find more information about registration, sponsorship opportunities, and hotel bookings below.
