Now that OLA Conference registration has been posted, it's time to make that all important annual set of decisions.

-do I attend? Answer: Unequivocally YES
-what about pre-conferences? Answer: Absolutely. A wise choice would be "Mental Health Issue or Bad Hair Day?" hosted by PLD
-what about any other special events? Answer:  I'd recommend staying for both evening events, but certainly for the PLD Banquet hosted by PLD on Wednesday night. You might as well just make a PLD Day and Night of it.
-how do I choose between all the sessions? Answer: I always look to see what PLD is sponsoring first. You can't go wrong.
-who do I thank for all of this help? Answer: PLD is only too happy to serve in whatever way we can.

Mental Health Issue or Bad Hair Day?
This high energy interactive session will involve a combination of lecture and
audience participation. The first half of the training covers an overview of mental health and
substance use issues, and other types of situations that can cause people to become agitated.
We will review the science of communication, including proxemics, body language, facial
expression, paralanguage and words themselves. The second half of the training addresses
specific skills in a four-staged approach. Finally, this presentation discusses self-care and how
our own presence of mind can greatly affect the success or failure of the de-escalation process.
Presenters: Kathy Prenevost, LMSW, Mark Schorr, LPC
Sponsor: PLD
