General Information:
The Minnesota LGBT Therapists' Network is a grass-roots organization of 120 LGBT Mental Health Providers in the Twin Cities. The Network is collaborating with the University of Minnesota GLBTA Programs Office to present this Midwest conference on mental health trends, which touch the lives of the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) communities. The theme of the conference is "Beyond the Boxes: Emerging Trends in LGBTQ Mental Health." This cutting edge conference will offer over 40 workshops that will explore changing paradigms in research and clinical practice as they relate to our understandings of diverse sexual and gender identities, as well as to issues of race, class, ability and sexual practices.

This one day conference is committed to challenging stereotypes and bias, providing current mental health information, expanding perspectives, and engaging participants in the areas of clinical work, research and community involvement. This conference will be of particular interest to mental health professionals, health care practitioners, researchers in the health sciences, educators, and students in these fields and is open to any and all interested lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, genderqueer and allied individuals. CEUs in these fields will be available.

Keynote Speaker:
Katherine "Kit" Rachlin, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist in New York and a certified sex therapist. She is an experienced clinician as well as an energetic advocate for transgender people, their families and partners.

Time to Act: Addressing Mental Health Issues in Underserved Populations

Underserved populations focus of third annual Mental Health and
Public Policy Conference May 7

How Minnesota can take better care of underserved populations - the homeless, elderly and poor, people of color, veterans, prison populations and more - is the focus of the third annual University of St. Thomas Mental Health and Public Policy Conference next month.

The daylong conference is sponsored by the university's Public Policy and Leadership program from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, May 7, in Terrence Murphy Hall on St. Thomas' downtown Minneapolis campus, 1000 LaSalle Ave. It is open to professionals and the public. Registration fees range from $20 (student) to $100 (for professional and continuing education credits). Online registration and more information is available at www.stthomas.edu/education/events.

The conference features presentations and commentary by a wide-ranging group of mental health professionals, public servants and interested citizens.

The day's events begin with a welcome by Dr. Bruce Kramer, interim dean of St. Thomas' College of Applied Professional Studies, and opening remarks by conference coordinator Patricia Jensen, adjunct professor in public policy.

Morning keynote speaker is Dr. L. Read Sulik, who last November began a position as Minnesota's new assistant commissioner for chemical and mental health services in the Minnesota Department of Human Services, will share seven priorities he has set for improving mental health services in the state. Among them: eradicating the stigma still associated with mental illness, overcoming barriers to access, reducing costs of mental health care and promoting activities that improve wellness.

The midday speaker will be Minnesota Sen. John Marty (DFL, District 54), chairman of the Minnesota Senate Committee on Health, Housing and Family Security. He is chief author of the proposed MN Health Plan, a statewide health-care plan currently under discussion by the Minnesota Legislature. It would cover primary, dental and mental health care, hospitalization and prescription medication.

Afternoon keynoter is Dennis Donovan, a research fellow in the Center for Democracy and Citizenship at the University of Minnesota's Hubert H. Humphrey Institute for Public Affairs. He is lead organizer of the center's Warrior to Citizen program, a grassroots effort to provide enduring support to Minnesota's returning veterans and their families. He also leads Public Achievement, an international youth civic engagement and education initiative. The former educator was a founder of the St. Paul Ecumenical Alliance of Congregations (SPEAC) and received the 2008 University of Minnesota Community Service Award.

A variety of breakout sessions also are scheduled on topics ranging from homelessness, cultural diversity and the elderly to veterans and prison issues. The day will conclude with a discussion of action plans.

The theme of the 2007 conference, "Traditional and Non-Traditional Approaches to Addressing Race and Culture in Psychology and Education," underscores the Roundtable's commitment to recognizing the multiple and complex effects of culture and social location in psychological and educational matters.

Conference Information

There are 2 weeks left to Register for the COSD Conference!!
Please Register TODAY!!

Hello Everyone:

Planning is complete for the COSD 7th Annual National Conference and I
can't wait to have you come on down to Atlanta and see what our
Conference will be like this year. It's an exciting agenda with many
great speakers and some great personal stories.

For example, Jihan and Suzanne Kamel will be presenting on the
complexities of Disclosure of a Disability. The special twist they
have is that their disability is significant, but may not be apparent
to most people.
The two
sisters both have Stargaardt's Syndrome, a form of juvenile macular
degeneration that is very gradual in its progression. They are very
eloquent self-advocates and they have some great insights into how
they function so effectively in their chosen fields.

Jihan recently graduated with a MBA from the University of Texas at
Dallas and will be only a couple of weeks into her new job at the US
Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, as a
Transportation Specialist, when she attends the COSD Conference.

Suzanne is currently working on her Masters at the University of North
Carolina Chapel Hill in the area of Occupational Science. She is in
the middle of her field work that involves establishing an outpatient
low vision clinic at Duke University Hospital.

Please go to www.cosdonline.org and read more about these young women.
Their bios are in the Conferences Section under the Presentations tab.

The Kamel sisters are just one presentation of many during our
Conference.

Please make sure that you register through the COSD website at
www.cosdonline.org. That is the ONLY way you will be able to attend
the Conference. There you will have all of the information you will
need regarding the Hyatt Regency, transportation to and from the
Airport, meals, the Agenda, the SunTrust Reception, the COSD Banquet
and all of the elements of our annual event. Also, please remember
that the Early Registration ($50
less) ends on MONDAY and all of Registration ends on June 1.

See you in Atlanta.

No Child Left Behind aims to raise the achievement of all students by providing additional federal funding while holding schools and teachers accountable for student performance. In Minnesota, student test scores have risen dramatically since the federal legislation was passed in 2001. But what is really behind the increase in test scores? Are school districts using test score data to improve curriculum or are they "teaching to the test"? Are teachers able to link test results to effective classroom practices, and does test data help them identify and focus on the needs of struggling learners? Do standardized tests accurately measure student achievement and academic preparedness?

Please join us for this special opportunity to meet with local education experts. Moderated by Kent Pekel. Hosted by Policy Forum Co-director Tim Penny and Nate Garvis, vice president of Government Affairs for Target.

Dear Higher Education Colleague:

The Institute on College Student Values will host its 16th annual meeting on February 2-4, 2006, at Florida State University. Over the past two decades, the Institute has become a national gathering for higher education administrators, teachers, researchers, and students who are especially interested in how colleges and universities encourage moral, civic, and spiritual development. The 2006 Institute will examine how colleges and universities promote the holistic student through the theme of Finding Wholeness: Students Search for Meaning and Purpose in College.

Featured speakers and presenters include Marcia Baxter-Magolda, professor of Education Leadership at Miami University; Rebecca Chopp, president of Colgate University; Alan Wolfe, professor of Political Science and director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College; and Scotty McLennan, Jr., dean of Religious Life at Stanford University. Arthur Chickering and Liesa Stamm will serve as faculty in residence. Invited presenters include Peter Laurence, co-director of Education as Transformation, Bill McDonald, VP Student Affairs at Presbyterian College; and Jennifer Lindholm, director of Project on Spirituality. More information about the program and registration along with the Institute brochure are available at www.Collegevalues.org/Institute.cfm.

The Institute will examine college programs that strive to assist students as they search for wholeness. Spirituality, leadership, involvement, and scholarship are just a few ways a student can work towards this goal. Speakers will discuss the roles that values and spirituality play in this success and why spirituality and authenticity are so important. As in the past, the 2006 Institute will provide participants with information on the character development initiatives of leading colleges and universities, current research on moral, spiritual and civic learning, and opportunities to learn and share with colleagues from across the United States.

Should you have questions about the 2006 Institute on College Student Values, please contact us at values@admin.fsu.edu.

The theme of the conference is "Beyond the Boxes: Emerging Trends in LGBTQ Mental Health." This cutting edge conference will offer over 40 workshops that will explore changing paradigms in research and clinical practice as they relate to our understandings of diverse sexual and gender identities, as well as to issues of race, class, ability and sexual practices.

This one day conference is committed to challenging stereotypes and bias, providing current mental health information, expanding perspectives, and engaging participants in the areas of clinical work, research and community involvement. This conference will be of particular interest to mental health professionals, health care practitioners, researchers in the health sciences, educators, and students in these fields and is open to any and all interested lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, genderqueer and allied individuals. CEUs in these fields will be available.

Keynote Speaker:
Katherine "Kit" Rachlin, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist in New York and a certified sex therapist.

Time to Act: Addressing Mental Health Issues in Underserved Populations

Underserved populations focus of third annual Mental Health and
Public Policy Conference May 7

How Minnesota can take better care of underserved populations - the homeless, elderly and poor, people of color, veterans, prison populations and more - is the focus of the third annual University of St. Thomas Mental Health and Public Policy Conference next month.

The daylong conference is sponsored by the university's Public Policy and Leadership program from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, May 7, in Terrence Murphy Hall on St. Thomas' downtown Minneapolis campus, 1000 LaSalle Ave. It is open to professionals and the public. Registration fees range from $20 (student) to $100 (for professional and continuing education credits). Online registration and more information is available at www.stthomas.edu/education/events.

The conference features presentations and commentary by a wide-ranging group of mental health professionals, public servants and interested citizens.

The day's events begin with a welcome by Dr. Bruce Kramer, interim dean of St. Thomas' College of Applied Professional Studies, and opening remarks by conference coordinator Patricia Jensen, adjunct professor in public policy.

Morning keynote speaker is Dr. L. Read Sulik, who last November began a position as Minnesota's new assistant commissioner for chemical and mental health services in the Minnesota Department of Human Services, will share seven priorities he has set for improving mental health services in the state. Among them: eradicating the stigma still associated with mental illness, overcoming barriers to access, reducing costs of mental health care and promoting activities that improve wellness.

The midday speaker will be Minnesota Sen. John Marty (DFL, District 54), chairman of the Minnesota Senate Committee on Health, Housing and Family Security. He is chief author of the proposed MN Health Plan, a statewide health-care plan currently under discussion by the Minnesota Legislature. It would cover primary, dental and mental health care, hospitalization and prescription medication.

Afternoon keynoter is Dennis Donovan, a research fellow in the Center for Democracy and Citizenship at the University of Minnesota's Hubert H. Humphrey Institute for Public Affairs. He is lead organizer of the center's Warrior to Citizen program, a grassroots effort to provide enduring support to Minnesota's returning veterans and their families. He also leads Public Achievement, an international youth civic engagement and education initiative. The former educator was a founder of the St. Paul Ecumenical Alliance of Congregations (SPEAC) and received the 2008 University of Minnesota Community Service Award.

Conference Information

There are 2 weeks left to Register for the COSD Conference!!
Please Register TODAY!!

Hello Everyone:

Planning is complete for the COSD 7th Annual National Conference and I
can't wait to have you come on down to Atlanta and see what our
Conference will be like this year. It's an exciting agenda with many
great speakers and some great personal stories.

For example, Jihan and Suzanne Kamel will be presenting on the
complexities of Disclosure of a Disability. The special twist they
have is that their disability is significant, but may not be apparent
to most people.
The two
sisters both have Stargaardt's Syndrome, a form of juvenile macular
degeneration that is very gradual in its progression. They are very
eloquent self-advocates and they have some great insights into how
they function so effectively in their chosen fields.

Jihan recently graduated with a MBA from the University of Texas at
Dallas and will be only a couple of weeks into her new job at the US
Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, as a
Transportation Specialist, when she attends the COSD Conference.

Suzanne is currently working on her Masters at the University of North
Carolina Chapel Hill in the area of Occupational Science. She is in
the middle of her field work that involves establishing an outpatient
low vision clinic at Duke University Hospital.

Please go to www.cosdonline.org and read more about these young women.
Their bios are in the Conferences Section under the Presentations tab.

The Kamel sisters are just one presentation of many during our
Conference.

Please make sure that you register through the COSD website at
www.cosdonline.org. That is the ONLY way you will be able to attend
the Conference. There you will have all of the information you will
need regarding the Hyatt Regency, transportation to and from the
Airport, meals, the Agenda, the SunTrust Reception, the COSD Banquet
and all of the elements of our annual event. Also, please remember
that the Early Registration ($50
less) ends on MONDAY and all of Registration ends on June 1.

See you in Atlanta.

President, St. Paul Federation of Teachers

No Child Left Behind aims to raise the achievement of all students by providing additional federal funding while holding schools and teachers accountable for student performance. In Minnesota, student test scores have risen dramatically since the federal legislation was passed in 2001. But what is really behind the increase in test scores? Are school districts using test score data to improve curriculum or are they "teaching to the test"? Are teachers able to link test results to effective classroom practices, and does test data help them identify and focus on the needs of struggling learners? Do standardized tests accurately measure student achievement and academic preparedness?

Please join us for this special opportunity to meet with local education experts. Moderated by Kent Pekel. Hosted by Policy Forum Co-director Tim Penny and Nate Garvis, vice president of Government Affairs for Target.

Dear Higher Education Colleague:

The Institute on College Student Values will host its 16th annual meeting on February 2-4, 2006, at Florida State University. Over the past two decades, the Institute has become a national gathering for higher education administrators, teachers, researchers, and students who are especially interested in how colleges and universities encourage moral, civic, and spiritual development. The 2006 Institute will examine how colleges and universities promote the holistic student through the theme of Finding Wholeness: Students Search for Meaning and Purpose in College.

Featured speakers and presenters include Marcia Baxter-Magolda, professor of Education Leadership at Miami University; Rebecca Chopp, president of Colgate University; Alan Wolfe, professor of Political Science and director of the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College; and Scotty McLennan, Jr., dean of Religious Life at Stanford University. Arthur Chickering and Liesa Stamm will serve as faculty in residence. Invited presenters include Peter Laurence, co-director of Education as Transformation, Bill McDonald, VP Student Affairs at Presbyterian College; and Jennifer Lindholm, director of Project on Spirituality. More information about the program and registration along with the Institute brochure are available at www.Collegevalues.org/Institute.cfm.

The Institute will examine college programs that strive to assist students as they search for wholeness. Spirituality, leadership, involvement, and scholarship are just a few ways a student can work towards this goal. Speakers will discuss the roles that values and spirituality play in this success and why spirituality and authenticity are so important. As in the past, the 2006 Institute will provide participants with information on the character development initiatives of leading colleges and universities, current research on moral, spiritual and civic learning, and opportunities to learn and share with colleagues from across the United States.
