ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

We never know when a life changing event such as death of a loved one, life threatening illness, natural disaster, divorce, financial losses, or a car accident can cause us to feel like we are on a physical and emotional roller coaster and in great need of survival tools and support. It is because none of us is immune to the bumps in life, that Bounce Back: The Power of Resilience Conference was conceived. Join us for an enlightening full-day conference designed to EDUCATE, EMPOWER, AND ENRICH both community members and the healthcare and educational professionals who serve them. Participants will discover new skills from within and resources in the world in which they live in order to survive and thrive as they recover from serious life challenges.

BOUNCE BACK:  THE POWER OF RESILIENCE WILL BE HELD ON NOVEMBER 12, 2016 from 9:00 AM TO 4:00 PM in the Jack Aaronson Conference Center at the Centrastate Medical Center Star & Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus Freehold, NJ 07728. Light breakfast and lunch will be included in the registration fee.
