Hood College | 2012 Into The Light Registration

10th Annual into the Light Conference
Friday, October 26, 2012
8am - 4pm
Hodson Auditorium, Rosenstock Hall
One of the state's most prominent advocates for women's and family issues and a leader in developing strategies for eliminating domestic abuse will deliver a keynote address. The conference will include discussion sessions on current domestic abuse issues and guest speakers. The annual event marks Domestic Violence Awareness month.
Since 1999, keynote speaker Michaele Cohen has served as executive director of the Maryland Network against Domestic Violence, a statewide coalition dedicated to eradicating domestic violence through education, training and advocacy. She also served as director of communications for the YWCA of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County and director of the YWCA Women’s Center and domestic violence program, where she coordinated legislative and public policy advocacy. Cohen is also president of the Maryland Legislative Agenda for Women, a statewide coalition of women's groups and individuals that advocate for progressive legislation and policies, and provide a nonpartisan, independent voice for Maryland women and families. She has also served on the board of directors of the Maryland Health Care Coalition against Domestic Violence and the steering committee of the Women's Legislative Briefing.
Another keynote speaker, Brenda Thomas, bestselling author and motivational speaker, will talk about her 15-year struggle with domestic violence and addiction, and her transition from victim to advocate.
This year's Into the Light X conference, themed Where Do We Go From Here, is co-sponsored by CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, Aramark, State's Attorney’s Office of Frederick County, Heartly House and Hood College. The conference seeks to bring police officers, social workers, educators, judiciary personnel and other concerned citizens together to find ways to help stop the cycle of abuse. As a lead-in to the conference, Telling Amy's Story will be screened Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. in Hodson Auditorium. The documentary traces the events leading up to the death of a 33-year-old mother of two who was killed by her husband 2001 when she decided to leave him after suffering years of abuse.

Social wellness is the ability to connect with other people in our world and establish and maintain positive relationships.

Emotional wellness is the ability to understand ourselves and cope with life’s challenges in a manner respectful of ourselves and others.

Spiritual wellness is the ability to find meaning and purpose in life through the congruence of values and actions.

Environmental wellness is the ability to recognize our personal and community responsibilities for making a positive impact on our environment.

Occupational wellness is the ability to get personal fulfillment from our work while maintaining balance in our lives.

Intellectual wellness is the ability to open our minds, integrate new concepts and challenges, and embrace lifelong learning.

Physical wellness is the ability to pursue a healthy quality of life and to recognize that our behaviors have a significant impact on our own and others’ wellness.
