This conference will once again provide exciting opportunities for connection and experiential learning to our extensive community of integrative mental health practitioners, educators, parents, and heath care providers.

Our theme for 2015 is “Moving Theory Into Practice”.  Following the keynote address, the day will be divided into two hour sessions in which presenters will provide both education and extensive hands-on learning about their particular modality.

An addition to this year’s conference is that we will end with a session designed to help participants actively apply what they have learned earlier in the day to their personal and professional lives.
