2017 Gathering @ Jupiter Hotel

Thanks for a great Gathering!

The 2017 Portland Gathering was held on July 23-26, 2017 at the Jupiter Hotel in Portland. In total, 142 people attended in-person and 14 people participated remotely in live broadcast sessions.

The agenda included highlights such as Trauma-informed care, families, social justice and social equity, and workshops led by self-advocates. Skill building sessions provided an opportunity to observe a mentor trainer deliver core components of the Person Centered Thinking curriculum. Overall, attendees reported feeling a great atmosphere and “vibe” at this year’s event, even if it was quite hot in our outdoor venue.
