This week, from October 17 to 20, the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) is hosting its annual conference in Portland, Oregon, and GoodTherapy.org is excited to be attending for the first time as an exhibitor.
AAMFT describes the conference as “the world’s leading education and networking event for marriage and family therapists.” During the conference, GoodTherapy.org will be sharing our mission of promoting healthy and ethical therapy practices with speakers and attendees from around the world.
This year’s event features four keynote speakers addressing topics such as healthy stress response, psychological issues facing urban youth, healthy eating and lifestyle habits in children, and encouraging resilience in at-risk youth. There will also be a wide range of seminars, workshops, and exhibitors, as well as a variety of networking opportunities, including a networking luncheon to discuss the changes incorporated in the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) and their impact on marriage and family therapists.
“As a marriage and family therapist, I strongly support the efforts of the AAMFT,” says Noah Rubinstein, founder and CEO of GoodTherapy.org. “Mental health, in my view, can be defined as the quality of relationships which exist between people and the quality of relationships that exist within people, forming the internal constellation of individuals’ psychology and personality. Marriage and family therapy as a profession and the AAMFT continues to bring this awareness to clinicians from all professions, license types, and theoretical approaches.”
If you plan on attending the conference, stop by and say hello; we’d love to meet you! We’ll be set up in Booth #11, spreading awareness about what it means to honor good therapy practices and offering a drawing for a free annual membership with GoodTherapy.org.
