Over 200,000 clinicians swear by Symposium to advance their careers
and reignite their love of their profession
 

No one has escaped the impact of the seismic events of the last year.

The repeated shocks to our systems has caused a spike in addictions, anxiety, trauma, and suicide (not to mention therapist exhaustion and professional burnout)... And created an urgent need for knowledge about cultural competency, treating racial trauma, facilitating social change, and so much more.

Make no mistake about it. To help your clients find hope and healing, you need fresh approaches that work in today’s new normal. But how do you do it?

At the Psychotherapy Networker Virtual Symposium, you’ll discover new evidence-based tools—and how to apply them—from the field’s leading clinicians and researchers like Bessel van der Kolk, Deran Young, Noah Garcia, Janina Fisher, Meagan Houston, and MANY more...

The Virtual Symposium is where a global village of therapists come together for the support and guidance you need to revitalize your practice.

The Latest Chapter in Couples Research

Drs. John and Julie Gottman

Rather than rely on grand theory, they’ve revolutionized the couples field with their meticulous research on the day-to-day, minute-by-minute, body- and mind-altering interactions between partners that distinguish fulfilling relationships from those that flounder. They’ve gone on to train thousands of practitioners around the world in their clinical approach and publish more than 50 books.

In this address, the Gottmans will reflect on the continued evolution of their work and share the results of a worldwide study of 40,000 couples who are preparing to enter couples therapy.

Morning Keynote Address
Mercy, Humanity, and Making a Difference

Bryan Stevenson

Bryan Stevenson is a visionary in the fight for social justice within our legal system, a leader of the movement against mass incarceration, and the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative. His TED Talk about the systemic racism and abuses of our criminal justice system has been named one of the five “essential” talks by The New Yorker.

Recently, he was the subject of a feature film based on his memoir, Just Mercy, which has spent over four years on The New York Times bestseller list. He’s received numerous awards including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Prize and the Martin Luther King Jr. Nonviolent Peace Prize.

Bryan will address the hard truths around a justice system that, as he puts it, “treats you better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent.” Hearing his experiences, you’ll feel a sense of mission and inspiration that’s sure to deepen your commitment to your work and making a difference in the larger world.
