RALEIGH, N.C., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Emily Ballance, nationally recognized speaker and Licensed Professional Counselor, will be the closing plenary speaker at the 2014 National Conference for America's Children, May 18-21, in Jacksonville, FL. The conference, presented by Prevent Child Abuse America and Healthy Families of America will be held at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville-Riverfront. You may register at www.preventchildabuse.org. Early registration closes on April 18.
Ballance speaks across the country to healthcare organizations, educational groups and at
conferences and special events on generations, communication, customer service, humor, stress
management and related topics. She offers guidance, tools and techniques for leveraging humor
to embrace and deal with life's challenges.
"It is my privilege to speak at this conference focused on the health and well-being of children,"
Ballance said. "The wide variety of workshop topics will appeal to the diverse group of attendees
who are all united by the same mission – the healthy and safe development of all children without
the threat of abuse and neglect."
"In my closing plenary, Finding Humor and Purpose in the Midst of Life's Circus, I will talk with
attendees about self-care, stress management, life balance and skills to enable them to survive
and thrive," Ballance said.
"As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I know that healthcare and helping professionals,
educators, attorneys and other advocates for children are often at a higher risk for compassion
fatigue and depression. The attendees of this conference are people who care deeply and work
tirelessly on behalf of children. Stress management is a constant challenge. My keynote will
support these passionate and dedicated professionals in a fun and interactive way that includes
strategies for sustaining a healthy lifestyle," said Ballance.
"Those who work in the human service field often forget about the importance of taking care of
themselves. They are caring, giving individuals who are committed to making others' lives
better. But knowing how important each and every worker is to the family they serve, I've
learned these dedicated workers also need to take time for themselves," said Jim Hmurovich,
President and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse America. "We're glad to have Emily here to remind
people of that."
Emily Ballance, MEd, LPC, CSP is a keynote speaker, Licensed Professional Counselor and
motivational humorist. Her mission is helping people balance life with humor, one laugh at a time,
through entertaining and engaging presentations. Ballance has been awarded the Certified
Speaking Professional designation, the highest earned designation presented by the National
