Display Talk 6: Child Protective Services in Today’s Arizona
Presenters: Karen Edmonson has worked in different areas of child welfare/CPS in Arizona for 19 years. She began her career as an ongoing
worker, assisting families toward reunification, permanency for children, and assisting teens in independent living programs. Later she investigated
reports of abuse and neglect, and provided families with opportunities to resolve issues that caused CPS involvement. She also supervised a CPS
intake and ongoing unit for several years and was able to provide assistance and direction to CPS workers, with the emphasis on child safety and
respectful communication with families. Lately she primarily has facilitated family meetings. The importance of extended family and community is
immeasurable, especially in our present times of economic crisis. Extended family and community are key to successful family interventions and/or
to the reunification process…of children with their parents.
Synopsis: Discussion of how the cuts in the Arizona budget have affected programs and services that CPS had offered in the past. New
direction…where do we go from here: Community resources, family resources, and basis services that CPS can still provide.

Presentation: AM I CO-DEPENDENT? IF I AM, CAN SOMEONE "FIX" Me?
Presenter: Barbara Bruce; Barbara Bruce is producer, director and host of White Mountain Radio's DRUGNET. Widowed, she found herself in a
relationship in 1994 with a drug addict, alcoholic and con-artist, and discovered she had a "black belt in co-dependency." Barbara ignored the signs
until she finally found herself heartbroken and financially depleted. After loosing everything she had as a result of this co-dependent relationship,
she enrolled in therapy, read everything she could find on addiction/recovery and became a devotee to ALANON and 12 Step Programs. Barbara
chose to share her story to benefit others. Barbara started the world’s first radio talk on tobacco and brought the Hazelden 12 Step Stop Smoking
Program to Arizona. Her tobacco show actually segued into DRUGNET. Today Barbara says she keeps that co-dependency in check by doing the
DRUGNET show each week.
Synopsis: Many don’t recognize the many faces of co-dependency. Some have heard the label but don’t understand what identifies one as "co-
dependent." Answer the questionnaire and see if the term applies to you. If you discover that you are co-dependent, what then? This breakout
session will provide you with information on various therapies available. Then, there is support. While there are many existing 12 Step Programs for
the co-dependent, such as AL-ANON and ALA-TEEN, there is another 12 Step Program that specifically addresses the needs of the co-dependent
person: CODA (Co-Dependents Anonymous). Find out how to start one in the White Mountains

Synopsis: To introduce to the listener the method(s) by which Percouco motivated youth to become involved in projects last year. He will also
explain, how he used life experience to explain to students that there is an obligation for each of us, to give back to our communities, what
community means. That it's not all about taking, but giving back through community service. It's a relatively simple philosophy. He will discuss how
he challenged each student to simply stop and think about how the community that they live in serves them, and, what they can do to see that some
form of service is returned to that community. He will also explain that the most important thing that we can do as adults, is listen to the student. He
believes this is the most important aspect, student inclusion. Letting the students know, that their input and their thoughts are valuable. Synopsis:
He will encouraged audience involvement in discussion on motivating youth in community service either through a simple Q&A, specific random
questions.
