The WVU School of Medicine’s fourth annual Behavioral Health Conference is scheduled for Feb. 7.

The Behavioral Health Conference benefits pediatricians, family medicine physicians, internists, physician assistants, nurses, social workers, licensed practicing counselors, psychologists and other healthcare providers.

With an array of featured speakers from the School of Medicine, the conference aims to hit many educational objectives. At the conclusion of the course, participants should know new strategies for working with children who have experienced trauma, be able to identify de-escalation strategies for children exhibiting unsafe behavior and know the latest developments in Alzheimer’s disease.

Continuing educational units and continuing medical education credits will be earned for social work, counseling, psychology and nursing.

The conference has an $80 registration fee that can be made payable by credit card or by check. Special rates will be available for large groups, state workers and WVU Medicine employees attending the conference.

The conference is held at the Days Inn & Suites Flatwoods Conference Center in Sutton, W.Va. For more information, contact Swapna King at 304-598-6422 or email at
