    Join us for the NCA's Fall Conference 2019: BYOB!

    BYOB…or 'Bring Your Own Business' is a nod to counselors everywhere who provide supportive service in a variety of work environments.  Whether private practice, agency, schools or wherever you may come from, we have sessions that will meet your professional development needs.  

    Our Thursday Keynote is Joyce Marter, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, who will be traveling down from Chicago to share with us her experience as a counselor, multi-million dollar business owner, and motivational consultant.  Additional info on Joyce can be found on her website at: https://www.joyce-marter.com

    Friday's Keynote will be Jen McNally, LIMHP, CCTP, QPR instructor. Jen will be presenting "Trauma:  Having An ‘ACE’ Up Your Sleeve". Jen McNally is a mental health coordinator, psychotherapist and national speaker who has been providing mental health services, psychoeducation, and administration for more than 18 years to children and families in a variety of settings, including: residential treatment facilities, outpatient treatment, and schools. Jen previously served on Nebraska's Children's Commission (LB821) and was appointed as Nebraska's Psychotropic Medication Committee's chairperson. She currently works as a mental health coordinator for the Educational Service Unit #5 (ESU-5), which supports 10 school districts in Nebraska, employing trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and CBT, among other modalities. She also provides training for school districts on suicide awareness as a QPR Institute instructor. Jen presents across the country on trauma-informed care, mental health, self-care strategies, and empowerment for public and private institutions.

    Individual Sessions will have a host of topics ranging from growing a private practice, the NEW ASCA model, melding schools with mental health counseling to strengthen our communities, and much, much more!
