DescriptionThe 1st Annual Core Skills Conference focuses on a variety of evidence-based clinical approaches, interwoven with novel interventions to fill in the gaps when working with challenging, multifaceted cases. The 2019 initial conference highlights skills to assist mental health clinicians and increases their options when working with families and couples, in an effort to improve overall mental health, communication and well-being. While new clinicians are drawn to a wide range of specialties in mental health counseling and intervention, they simply cannot avoid work with families and couples - even if that is not their primary choice of specialization. This conference offers basic skills to ease this dilemma for new therapists, while simultaneously providing fresh approaches and ideas for seasoned professionals.
This conference runs two days, with two different concurrent speakers each day:
1. Choose to attend one day or both days.
2. Choose a track for each day.
