2011 Children’s Roundtable Summit

The 2011 Pennsylvania’s Children’s Roundtable Summit was held September 19-21, 2011 with 385 participants representing 51 counties and 95% of children in out-of-home care.

The theme of this year’s Summit was “transformative change.” With so much happening in our state, counties, and courts the topic was a timely one. Highlights from this year’s Summit included Cassie Solomon, national expert in change management; Dr. Marty Beyer, psychologist and expert in minimizing grief & loss for foster children; and Terrance Walton, a dynamic and energizing expert in the field of drug & alcohol addiction.

In addition to the incredible talent listed above, the Summit featured a panel of former Pennsylvania foster youth. These youth shared their experience with change, what was helpful and what could be helpful.
