    Musical Performance

    Hilary Weeks was raised in Anchorage, Alaska where her family often enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors – including frequent fishing trips. At the age of 15 Hilary caught a trophy-sized king salmon weighing 80 pounds – much to the chagrin of her father who would have liked to catch a fish that size!

    Hilary has always loved music. She began taking piano lessons at age 8 and wrote her first song at age 14. Hilary’s first CD, He Hears Me, released in 1996 and over the past 25 years she has released a total of 14 solo albums. Hilary was the first LDS musician to chart on the Christian Billboard charts and three of her CDs have charted in the top ten.

    Hilary enjoys eating out (that’s her favorite hobby), walking, hiking, pickleball, macrame (remember that from the 70’s?), cooking and being with her family. Hilary met her husband Tim when he was serving as a missionary in Alaska and they are the parents of four beautiful daughters. They have three sons-in-law, one grandbaby and live in Woodland Hills, UT.

    Forgiveness, It’s Not What You Think

    It was not long after he got married that Clair began to realize that he was terrible at dealing with conflict. During that time as an undergraduate at Weber State University he began to explore communication studies courses to try and find new ways of dealing with his conflicts rather than just trying to avoid them. He also felt a call towards teaching so after graduation he taught as an adjunct for two years before going back to school for his Masters Degree. He attended the University of Montana where he continued exploring his interest in topics related to communication and conflict such as the forgiveness process. While pursuing a doctoral degree from the University of Utah, Clair also completed a graduate certificate program in conflict resolution. Clair is the founder of Canfield Conflict & Collaboration Consulting and has now been teaching, training, and consulting for over 22 years. He has been at Utah State University for 9 years and is a senior lecturer in the Communication Studies and Philosophy department. He lives in Perry with his wife and three daughters. One of those daughters is partially responsible for his reputation as the “hair-pretties guy” from a story told during his TEDx talk at USU that has now been viewed on YouTube over 450,000 times. Clair is passionate about the possibilities that the forgiveness process has to help us deal with the damage that can sometimes come from unhealthy conflict.

    Helping Couples Navigate Sexual Betrayal and Addiction

    As a marriage and family therapist, I have dedicated my career to mastering an understanding of recovery from sexual addiction and betrayal trauma. I have come to believe that the men and women who embrace and live the principles of recovery do far more than get their lives back, they become the best kinds of husbands and wives, fathers and mothers. I feel privileged to act as a guide and support to those who embark in the life transformation of living a connected lifestyle.

    I have been working my own recovery for over 15 years. I strive to live the principles I teach and I am on a life-long quest to become a man of courage, passion, and love. I have been married for over 20 years to an incredible woman and I am a father to four amazing daughters. My hobbies away from work include supporting my children’s interests, fly-fishing, backpacking, training River (my german shorthair pointer), soccer, and exercising.

    Surviving and Thriving: A Quarterback’s Take on Managing Mental Health

    In his heartfelt and engaging speech, Eric Hipple inspires audiences with his journey to success before, during and after life in the NFL. This innovative presentation strives to enhance learning and academic achievement by changing the culture of stigma surrounding mental health. The program emphasizes the power of peer support and bystander intervention in everything from preventing negative behaviors and violence, to identifying serious warning signs of depression, substance abuse, or suicidal intentions. Building on the energy, motivation, connectedness, and sense of purpose that exists in a “healthy mind,” the presentation provides constructive strategies, resources, and materials for school staff, students, and parents to use to encourage positive behaviors. Attendees will learn strategies to identify depression, as well as strategies to promote healthy behaviors.

    Forgiveness, It’s Not What You Think

    The idea of forgiveness is central to many faith traditions. However, when it comes to knowing how to forgive, many of us have barriers that exist because of common misunderstandings and myths that surround forgiveness. This workshop will help you to develop awareness of how you currently conceptualize forgiveness, recognize common barriers that block us, and identify how you can unlock the gifts that forgiveness can provide when we understand the process.

    The Positive Promise of Teens: Coping with Depression and Anxiety

    The prevalence of anxiety and depression increases during adolescence. A focus on family and parent-based interventions is a top priority for coping with depression and anxiety. Functioning in daily life is of primary importance for positive outcomes when dealing with depression and anxiety in young people. Resilience, faith in oneself and the future, life skills, and emotional regulation are all important considerations for the positive promise of teens.

    When Faith Wanes

    Everyone experiences diminished faith at times in their lives. It is most poignant when the people closest to us are questioning their own faith or leave their faith. This is all part of an all knowing Fathers plan and should be viewed with a grander perspective. This perspective and some coping tools will help you through your personal journey as it relates to yourselves and those you love.

    Rick Hill, LCSW

    Strengthening the Caregiver: “…succor the weak, lift up the hands that hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees.” (D&C 81:5)

    Caregivers may have needs that are not visible to others, and they may also be reluctant to ask for help. Caregivers may have a higher risk of stress-related depression, anxiety, substance-abuse, or physical health issues. They may also experience grief, resentment, or anger over the loss of their hopes and expectations. Their day-to-day lifestyle, freedom to do things they want, and goals for the future may all be different from what they once expected. This presentation will help caregivers acclimate to these losses and learn skills to deal with the mental health related concerns that they too may experience as they care for those who stand in need.

    Tyler Patrick, LMFT

    Helping Couples Navigate Sexual Betrayal and Addiction

    Working with a couple as they try to overcome addiction, infidelity, and other integrity issues is a challenging process. It can be difficult to support both partners as they struggle to simultaneously overcome the problem behaviors while also trying to re-establish trust in the relationship. This presentation will focus on what you can do to help both partners along the road to recovery, healing from betrayal, and restoring trust in relationships. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:
    -Understanding the cycle of Shame and its role in perpetuating compulsive behaviors
    -Insight into the trauma a betrayed spouse experiences and how to help them find healing
    -Key Principles for rebuilding trust after betrayal.

    Untangling Addiction in Youth Populations

    An enlightening exploration into the murky world of addiction among children and adolescents, this presentation will review current theories of addiction and find what they can teach us about motivation and behavior. We will examine the social, biological and emotional conditions that create addiction but can also engender resilience. And, we will learn how to be helpful and avoid missteps addressing and treating addictions in young people.

    My Strength and My Hope is Perished: Ministering to Those Experiencing Self-Injury and Suicidality

    In this presentation we will define non-suicidal self-injury and suicidal ideation, plan, and intent. We will discuss the rapid rise in these phenomena as well as the risk factors and warning signs to attend to in our congregations. We will identify protective factors to cultivate, as well as prevention, intervention, and postvention strategies appropriate for ecclesiastical leaders to minister to their congregants who are suffering.

    Perfectionism: Noble Pursuit or Toxic Shame? Balancing Faith & Emotional Wellness in the Culture of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

    Sometimes, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints question their own self-worth and feel they can’t live up to real, or perceived, standards. This may result in self-shaming, crippling cases of anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, scrupulosity and perfectionism- to name a few. Perhaps most tragic, these personal assessments and degradations tend to be in direct contrast to the actual doctrinal tenets of their faith. In this presentation, a candid and personal account of how our family journeyed through this challenge with our teenage daughter, we’ll explore how the interplay of faith, medical intervention, therapy, and the unwavering support of our community guided us to find our way through this experience. We’ll also discuss how to discern where doctrine ends and negative cultural assumptions begin.

    Be Still and Know: Understanding Perfectionism from the Inside Out

    Do you ever wonder why your brain does what it does? The human brain is powerful as it constantly works to help us learn and grow through life. Our brain prioritizes our innate need for physical and relational safety. In this presentation you will gain a greater appreciation and understanding as to how these innate drives also have the potential to limit our ability to choose. Perfectionism is not the problem, it is a symptom that can create future concerns when left unaddressed. You will also learn how to utilize the power of faith to work with some of the greatest gifts we all possess: body, brain, mind and divine identity.

    The Rise of Gaming and Social Media: Leading to an Increase of Family Issues

    How does gaming and social media affect your mental health and the mental health of your family? Social media and gaming have become prominent fixtures in our lives and this presentation takes a look at how gaming and social media may have adverse effects on families. We review warning signs and provide suggestions to identify problematic use and what we can do about it.
