CAP Highlight
Attendee Feedback on Why You Should Attend the 25th CAP Conference:
"I love attending the CAP conference because it is the one time in the year when all of us, from many multiple disciplines, all gather to focus on learning and speaking the same language of prevention. It educates my mind and uplifts my spirit. It gives me a renewed sense of purpose and reintroduces me to why I chose my profession. It is a secure linchpin holding my inspiration together with my aspiration."

"I love that every year this conference re-invents itself. There is always something new to learn here."

"The overall conference was so powerful. The keynote speakers were all amazing. The stories were so powerful. The topics were on point. I move forward with more impactful information and resources. I will be back."

"It’s clear to me that I’m here for a purpose. This conference confirmed that I’m not alone and to keep doing what I do."
Impact Story
Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) is an evidence-based training shown to improve parenting skills, prevent child maltreatment, and repair emotional behavioral, and developmental problems in children. Prevent Child Abuse Arizona offers Triple P trainings to practioners in early childhood, family support, and child welfare, and behavioral health. 

A mother, who took the Triple P class, recalled a recent trip to Walmart; “In Triple P, they discussed how to give each child a responsibility at the grocery store to help the trip become less chaotic. So, I did it for my three boys. This tool made our shopping trip feel structured and enjoyable. My kids loved having responsibilities, therefore they acted up less and relieved me of the stress of bringing them along. This class was worth it just for this moment in Walmart!”
Today in Prevention
The Arizona Town Hall collaborated with a dozen experienced child welfare professionals, including Prevent Child Abuse Arizona's Claire Louge, to author a report that addresses the state and needs of Arizona's children. This report discusses various aspects of family life including the systems that exist to support them, ways families can have more positive experiences, and some of the struggles families face that compromise their life experiences. 
On June 28, the State Bar of Arizona Association presented Executive Director Becky Ruffner with the Terry Chandler award for excellence in the field of juvenile law. Throughout Arizona, Becky has been a fierce voice for young children, ages zero to three, in the child welfare system. In 15 years, Becky has implemented Best for Babies in all Arizona counties. This program provides critical information to judicial officials that ensure children in the foster care system receive care for their trauma needs.
