2020 Virtual Symposium: Live online March 19-20

Featuring LIVE keynotes and workshops from Esther Perel, Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk, Dan Siegel, Tara Brach, Sue Johnson, Janina Fisher, and Lori Gottlieb


A conference with the theme “The Art of Healing in Anxious Times” could not have been better timed.

Although we had to cancel the 2020 in-person event for nearly 4,000 attendees, the response made it clear that if ever there was a time therapists wanted to feel connected and hear from the leading voices in our field, it’s now. That’s why many of our featured presenters have come together to offer you ... the first-ever Virtual Symposium Experience!

Register today and get access to the LIVE keynotes and workshops. You’ll be able to submit your questions to speakers in real time and earn live CE credits.

Can’t make the live broadcasts Thursday and Friday? No problem! You’ll also have access to review the broadcasts for 6 months after the event. PLUS, get access to the most popular 2019 Symposium workshops from Deb Dana, Dick Schwartz, Elliot Connie, and more. Self-study CE credit is available for these.

This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for therapists looking not only for clinical insight, but a forum in which to reflect on how we can help ourselves and our clients navigate difficult and uncertain like these.

BONUS: Get access to our exclusive Facebook Group where you'll get the latest live updates, event notifications, and the chance to interact with your colleagues.
