This week, from December 11 to 15, the largest psychotherapy conference in the world is being held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California: The Evolution of Psychotherapy (www.evolutionofpsychotherapy.com). GoodTherapy.org is excited to announce that our founder and CEO Noah Rubinstein will be attending this exciting and educational gathering of leaders in the field of psychotherapy. Team members Chesna Klimek, editor in chief and education director, and Dan Fajans, member support manager, will be joining him.
With the first conference taking place in 1985 and the most recent one in 2009, this important opportunity for dialogue and growth in the field of psychotherapy would not be possible without the work and sponsorship of The Milton H. Erickson Foundation. Dr. Jeffrey Zeig, cofounder and CEO of the foundation, says in a video on the conference website that it has been hailed as “the Woodstock of psychotherapy.”
This year’s event features several days packed with workshops, discussion panels, and clinical demonstrations led by experts who have made significant contributions and advances in the field. Speakers include Francine Shapiro, Gerald Edelman, Diane Ackerman, Martin Seligman, Paul and Eve Ekman, Cloe Madanes, Aaron Beck, Jeffrey Zeig, Albert Bandura, John and Julie Gottman, and Steven Hayes.
Many more will be sharing their knowledge and insight on topics such as mindfulness, positive psychology, transforming trauma, mind-body healing, hypnosis, self-compassion, the language of change, family and couples therapy, and general issues related to psychotherapy.
In the first keynote address of Wednesday evening, Salvador Minuchin, one of the leading founders of family therapy, will be speaking on “The Craft of Family Therapy.” Alanis Morissette will also be making an appearance at the conference on Wednesday night. Dr. Jeffrey Zeig plans to interview the well-known singer-songwriter on “the artistry of impact in song” in a keynote address titled “Art, Integration, Wholeness … and the Feminine.”
If you’re planning on attending, we look forward to seeing you there!
