The 2017 TACES Mid-Winter Conference, Bridging a Divide: Best Practices in Creating Healthy Communities, will be held March 2-3, 2017, at the Austin Holiday Inn, Midtown in Austin, Texas.

We invite you to submit a program proposal for this conference by December 16, 2016. The TACES board uses a blind review process in selecting programs. Notification of acceptance will be sent in mid-January, 2017.  If you have trouble submitting your proposal, please contact Dr. Brenda Jones.
We are soliciting proposals that will foster growth in counselors, counselor educators, supervisors and students as we help each other navigate a divisive and emotionally-laden time in our world. Additionally, we solicit program topics that will help us process and provide healing messages in areas relating to race relations, LGBT issues, religion/spirituality, immigration issues, gender issues, police and community relations and living in a highly charged political climate.
On Thursday, March 2, 2017, we begin a new tradition with our first day-long Grad Day activity for graduate students which consist of breakout sessions on topics pertinent to graduate students.
Following this event, all TACES members are invited to a panel discussion, Healing a Troubled World: Promoting Ways to Honor and Understand Diverse Experiences
